In Texas they sell a brand of hot sauce called 'Fire in the Hole'.There is the side effect that doesn't seem to have been touched on (prudish? Maybe I'm being coarse?), but with really hot food the morning afterwards...your arse feels like those films of space shuttles being launched into space. Not good.
I agree..wasabi is the best thing ever!! My sushi friend and I sit there and try to get that burning up our nose. We must look like lunatics one of us sitting there choking and eyes watering while the other one says "Oh, man you got one?!?" all jealous and pouty lolSpeaking of spicy....a friend and I went out for sushi today...and I got all of her wasabi, plus my own. She just sat there and laughed as my face turned red with very bite....and I loved every minute of it. Good times.
I love how how ice cream can be medicinal for so many things :wubu:well, im a southern belle so spicy is in my blood. i can take things pretty hot usually. but last summer we were at a crawfish boil and the spices were so strong that i couldnt even really enjoy the food at all. by the time we left my lips hurt so bad that i could hardly put lipstick on! we had to stop for icecream to soothe the burn
:wubu::wubu::wubu::wubu:There is no such thing as "too spicy".
My guy friends love to challenge me to "hotness wars", where we see who can handle the heat...
And I always win.
I think the "worst" combo was jalapenos, in Devil's Piss hot sauce, with wasabi shmear and a bit of curry powder, on top of a tortilla chip.
It was quite good... lol
The only decent restaurant near my gramps' place in Florida is Thai and the waiter always asks "Mild, spicy, or Thai spicy?" I've never had the nerve to order "Thai spicy."I ordered Thai food once and the cook (from Thailand) came out and asked me if I was sure I wanted it that hot. I said yes and he walked away sorta shaking his head in disbelief. I ate the whole thing, too.
