Miami's Ten Spiciest Dishes: Murg Vindaloo, "Salsa of Life" and Spicy Conch Salad
Hurricane offers a massive list of 35 different sauces, separated under categories according to hotness, to go on your chicken wings. The iFlavor special (10, $9.95) comes with two sides and allows you to combine two of the flavors. If your really brave try Category 5 flavor ridiculously hot sauce and Category 4's habanero lime dry rub. "I wouldn't even recommend it to the average palate," said bar manager John Winston. During a recent wings competition, guests who attempted to scarf down the fiery combo rapidly had to sign a liability release.

5. Sweet Potato Ice Cream with Ancho Chilies and Chocolate Chips at Azucar
We thought the same thing you're thinking -- "ice cream with hot pepper?" But Azucar manager Bianca Gomez assured us the contrasting tastes blend perfectly in layers. Azucar's mission statement is to make ice cream just like owner's Suzy Battle's abuela used to make. The dominant flavor came from the sweet potato ice cream that tastes just like their stated purpose would suggest -- homemade. The subtle kick from the chilies next appeared, followed by a smoothing down provided by the chocolate chips. Every bite became smoother and smoother until there was nothing left. You'll have to try it for yourselves (two scoops, $3.50; three, $4.50).
