Spicy Food

Recommended Posts

I love spicy food. If I'm not bleeding out my ass the next day, it wasn't spicy enough. For reference Nando's Xtra-Xtra Spicy sauce is baby's first hot sauce.

I love spicy, I've eaten the hottest jalapenos, chilis, and everything there is, and I've never ever had any problem with my digestion. I think you're all a bunch of pussies.

Haha, he thinks jalapenos are hot. How contrived. Sad!

Love it! My tolerance doesn't seem to be as high as in the past. But I try add spiciness to most meals.

I must admit that I do like a bit of spicyness to certain foods but I think spicyness is very addictive from what I've observed amongst friends during my life and it can become ott. People will start to add spice to dishes that traditionally don't have it and even though that's not an issue at all because each person is free to embellish their plate of food as they wish, it does also show how addictive it is. 

I know of someone that's even gone to the extreme of trying it on desserts and only stopped doing it because he saw that it was ridiculous. The other proof of spicyness' addictive nature is the fact that those that really do become accustomed to searching for the hit in all sorts of foods will slowly have to raise the levels of spicyness as time goes by... Low levels are no longer enough!

Like I said at the start... I like it but I do also respect the culinary traditions of each dish and where each ingredient belongs because it does.

I love it, but personally, I need to be able to feel both the taste of the dish AND the heat, otherwise it's quite pointless. That's why I love Thai food; it combines the intense flavours and spiciness so well. The best spicy dish I ever had was Kua Gling (southern Thai dry curry which is basically meat fried in chili paste), it's extremely spicy yet flavourful; and Som Tam (Isaan-style papaya salad). The most stupidestly spicy dish I ever tried was Szechuan hotpot (in essence, it's boiling chili broth) my Chinese neighbours cooked in the communal kitchen of our student halls, the smell alone was enough to make you cry xD

Love spicy food and have grown up with it since childhood thanks to a family who are great cooks. 

But there is too much of a good thing! Spiciness in food is great and welcome, but too much of it spoils the taste of the actual food you're eating. As @nudge alludes to, you have to be able to taste what you're eating without it being spoilt by too much spice.

I don't mind spice (extreme levels even) in my food but there is a limit and as some have already alluded to, if it ruins the base of what I am eating then its not worth it. I tried a ghost chili pickled from a place up north once and at first it was great tasting till it decided to lay a cluster of heat in my mouth then it got a little unpleasant. As you go further south in India the spice gets hotter imo and there are places like Andhra Pradesh where even simple things like Biryani can be extremely spicy but man the taste oh the taste.
