Amazing chips

I just sampled the most amazing potato chips ever–handmade at La Palma Mexicatessen (a San Francisco deli and tacqueria at 2884 24th Street at Florida in the Mission,. These chips, handcut and freshly made, must be the Cuban cigars of the potato chip world (if there is such a thing)–straightforward, but completely wonderful. The chips are a light golden brown, lightly salted, and go down as easily as fresh-roasted almonds. Packaged in little bags and sold for a dollar or so, they come with miniature packets of Tapatio hot sauce so they can be doused and devoured.
