The chilli at The Prince of Wales Pub in San Mateo. The chilli at The Prince of Wales Pub. The chilli…

Is delicious. The first bite is not hot, but it creeps up on you – but not too much. By the end of my bowl, I was in a mild sweat. There was a guy in there with a 10 gallon hat – definitley an out-of-towner – but he looked like he knew what he was up to with that bowl of chilli. He was all dour and serious when he saddled up to that bowl of red. All business like. (I wonder if this is how he screws his sheep?) These guys make a real classic: no beans, flavored just right, using chunks of steak, chili, and maybe a little oninon. Mmmmmm-Mmm!
