...YES! It's achievable

Congratulations to Robert Uyeyama, the first winner of our spicy challenge.

Here is the post from Rob on our Facebook.


                                             Rob:    "Thanks Chef, it was very memorable! Thanks so much!            

                                                            The waiter said the noodles were maybe at a 20 on the

                                                            1-10 scale, painful but edible and enjoyable-- I would

                                                            order something on a 15 when I am back in town to be

                                                            more comfortable... but I think the soup was too much,

                                                            maybe a 60 or 80, definitely on another level, and it was

                                                            so huge too. If it was a quarter of its size I think that  

                                                            would be enough for your spicy challenge, since it 

                                                            would test the mouth's tolerance plenty without having

                                                            to continue to down more than a pint of the stuff (not

                                                            enjoyable) and make the stomach try to take it. All in all

                                                            very entertaining, thanks for a great time!"

OCTOBER 20, 2012 @6PM-9PM

   Julie Sou needs our help to fund her advanced treatment for stage IV metastatic breast cancer at the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, TX. She is 28 years old and has been fighting the cancer for over a year; which, has now spread to her bones. Although she now lives in San Antonio, TX, when she lived in San Diego, she was well-known and well-loved by all who crossed paths with her.

   The goal, $20,000 (although treatment costs could be as much as $50,000, depending on duration of treatment), includes treatment expenses, medication, and travel/housing to stay in Houston during the treatment. Her plan is to do it in December 2012-January 2013 when she is on break from school.

Issara Thai has agreed to donate 25% of proceeds generated by the event to help fund her treatment. 

​Join us on October 20, 2012 from 6pm-9pm for:

   - Local beers on tap
   - Raffle prizes and giveaways every hour
   - Skype with Julie throughout the night


BooOOo- I see Ghosts

Kenny Pong - October 2012

I see a ghost... a ghost chili in my delicious Kra Pow Pork. A couple of days ago, a co-worker brought in the Infamous "Ghost Chili" to work, and an idea of a Spicy Challenge popped up here at Issara Thai. New recipes are in the works, the ISSARA CHALLENGE will begin sometime in November. Stay connected for updates.
