Nitally's Thai-Mex Cuisine

Fusion in St Petersburg

Owned by a Thai-Mexican couple, this delicious fusion concept worked its way up from a food truck to a brick-and-mortar establishment. Items like Thai peanut chicken tortillas and Penang mole burritos were always going to be winners, but the inferno soup challenge, which dares guests to consume a hospital-trip spicy pepper broth, put this place on the map.

It costs $50 to attempt the challenge, and contestants must also sign a waiver. There are 25 different types of hot peppers in the soup, including the world's hottest one, the ghost pepper.
