CHALLENGE: Jake Melnick's Corner Tap

(November 8, 2011)
41 East Superior St., Chicago, IL 60611
Jake Melnick's Corner Tap on Urbanspoon
A Quick Word:
Jake Melnick's seems like a great restaurant.  So if you actually want to try the food.. DO NOT EAT THIS WINGS! other than that... its a great place to have a little fun with some friends and try some of the hottest wings, if not the hottest, in chicago!

What I Ate:

XXX Wing Challenge!

So this was the day my friends and I decided to do the XXX hot wing challenge.  After getting snickered at and signing WAIVERS, they brought us the wings... you could smell the heat.  There are I believe 8 wings (couldn't really remember because you have to eat them so quickly). And each is generously covered in their Ghost Pepper Sauce.  This is no ordinary hot sauce... It is made with the hottest pepper in the world and is served a little chunky.  To put it into perspective, they garnish the plate with a Habanero Pepper!

While eating...
My Friends thought it would be funny to
take a picture of me eating...
If you still don't believe me... After eating, or if you can't handle it anymore, they bring out a "cool down plate" consisting of a shot of milk, a scoop of ice cream, bread, sour cream, orange slices, and a few other surprises... ALL THAT SEEM TO WORK... until their effect wears off and you are stuck with a burning mouth and bubbling stomach! (No Picture... couldn't wait to use my "cool down plate".)

All of us finished!
The DOs/DON'Ts:

- Make sure to take ~5 Tums or Pepto-Bismol beforehand
- One of my friends chugged a pint of Milk before eating.
- Plan on getting Ice Cream or something after because your stomach will thank you!

- Don't rub your face, eyes, or whatever after eating!  The oils stay on your hands and will burn!
- Don't think its over after your mouth has cooled off... THE PAIN IS JUST ABOUT TO START! (remember... what hurts going in must hurt when coming out!)
- Don't plan on eating for a few meals... or ordering anything else at the restaurant. Just trust me on that!

How far would I walk for this food?

I will not be giving a rating on this restaurant, mainly because all I ate here was the XXX wings.  Although a fun challenge, they aren't the best tasting.  I will give it a real try one of these days and update the rating!
