I love condiments. I originally wanted to write a coffee table book about condiments and use the above title, but I decided to be a little less ambitious and start a blog. I figured it was about time that I contributed something back to the Internet community...
Green sauce at Pio Pio in NYC - spicy, creamy, the perfect complement to the Peruvian chicken at Pio Pio. Not worth eating the chicken if you don't have the green sauce - my definition of the ideal condiment. I've tried re-creating this condiment at home - no dice.
Patatas Bravas sauce at Mercat in NYC - this is the best patatas bravas I've ever had (including in Spain). I always ask for extra and I put it on most of the things we order there.
Sweet garlic "house sauce" at Caracas Arepas in NYC - delicious and you can buy it for $8 per bottle
Chimichurri sauce at Tango Sur in Chicago - available at one of my favorite restaurants in my hometown (and it's BYOB)
Garlic/Pepper/Ranch-style sauce at Houston's - like a ranch sauce but with something extra. Perfect with french fries.
Honey Mustard sauce at Wendy's - don't knock it until you try it. Can't have the chicken nuggets without it.
