Chili – Llywelyn’s

When you close your eyes and imagine the perfect bowl of chili, what do you see? Ground beef, cumin-heavy tomato sauce, pinto beans and some onions? Just try the white chicken chili Llywelyn’s Pub and see how long that image lasts. The Welsh public house’s variation of the Tex-Mex dish starts with pepperoncini-infused cream, then adds navy and garbanzo beans and large chunks of pulled chicken breast. The result is a rich, deeply satisfying bowl that has the essence of traditional chili but the decadence of a cream-based soup. It’s slightly tangy, mildly spicy and 100 percent guaranteed to make you think twice about what makes a perfect bowl of chili. Photo courtesy of Llywelyn’s.
