It’s a well-known* fact that Consider The Sauce doesn’t just regularly check out the sprawling industrial/commercial estates of the greater west but also actively enjoys doing so.

We like finding out what’s at the end of any given street or boulevard.

And there’s always the chance we’ll find food.

That doesn’t happen very often, mind you …

But today’s outing is no aimless adventure, as we’re on the trail of a hot tip – so to speak.

We check out the surrounding streets of a light industrial hub pretty much on the opposite side of the ring road from the Star Weekly office at Keilor Park, before zeroing in on our destination.

The plain doorway and lack of signage don’t look at all promising.

But inside we find a well-appointed, cozy room stuffed with hot sauce.

Lots and lots and lots of hot sauce.

Welcome to Blonde Chilli.

The eponymous blonde, boss lady Belinda, is elsewhere but we’re made welcome and talked in a darn right friendly fashion through the store’s many spicy wares.

Those wares are all about bottle after bottle of hot sauce.

Though there’s some potato crisps, spice mixes and even jerky on hand.

There’s quite a few sauces from Australia, with the rest being from the US.

Interestingly, there appears to be few or none sauces from the southern states, nor from the Caribbean – but we’re not complaining!

Aside from the locked cabinet of limited edition and signed goodies, all the sauces are available for tasting.

So taste we do.

The taste buds on my tongue are shot after just four drops from four sauces.

In the end, we buy a bottle each of Volcanic Peppers’ Lava Hot Scorpion BBQ Sauce and Blair’s Beyond Death Sauce.

And a couple of packets of crisps.
