What does it taste like? Well, for starters it is savory rather than spicy. It is also sweeter, which generally comes from the spices used (cinnamon, allspice, and cloves are not uncommon) and the use of chocolate. If you are familiar with the chili at the Steak & Shake chain of restaurants, it bears some similarities. (I dont want to over do the comparison, but I want to give people a frame of reference.) The resulting concoction is very flavorful but it doesnt really stand up on its own. As a result you rarely find people eating a bowl of Cincy chili by itself. Most often it is combined with other items to make the famous Chili 3-way, 4-way, 5-way's etc. For example, "chili 3-way" means Cincy chili over spaghetti, topped with a large amount of finely shredded cheddar cheese. Add raw chopped onion to that and you've got 4-way (my favorite). Add kidney beans to 4-way and you got 5-way. And that is the beauty of this stuff, you can dress it up the way you like.
Now, in Cincy there are a number of places that sell this stuff...and I never lived there. I did live in Dayton for a year and came to love this stuff. Skyline is the chain most people are familiar with and they make my favorite chili for 4-way. Gold Star is another chain many people prefer. I'm a little weird as I think the Gold Star coney is superior to the Skyline...but in general I like the Skyline product better.
However, making this at home was often a problem.Read more ›
