How Spicy Do You Like Your Food?

Fri Jul 01, 2005 6:26 am

For me the spicier the better. Tabasco,jalapeno,etc. i love it. I do draw the line at anything preparred in a vindaloo style. For those who dont know vindaloo is a indian style of cuisine which is incredibly spicy. Last Saturday my family was at an indian restaurant where I ordered some beef vindaloo. Dont get me wrong this stuff was good-but it was real spicy. the first few bites were ok-but after a while it was impossible to stuff down with a lot of water,rice and bread.

I like it very spicy! Tabasco, other hot sauces, jalapeno, etc. is always welcome. This is the reason why I like Thai or Indian food so much.

I usually eat food as spicy as I can while still being able to taste the food itself. My personal favorite spicy food is Indian, but I'm a big fan of spice when it comes to Chinese and Mexican too, and to a lesser extent Italian (Arabbiata is fantastic, however)

It depends on how far I'll be from a toilet at any given moment for the next 24 hours. It requires careful planning.

I like heat, but not too much. Just to the point of it being hot, but I don't want to sweat.

I dig heat (love Thai food), but jalepeños are just nasty-tasting.

It depends......I generally like food very spicy, but not so spicy that it takes away the taste of the food. I love spicy, tasty buffalo wings with cool bleu cheese.

Oooh I love spicy food. Today I had Vietnamese Pho Noodles.... wherein you put lots of chili paste, sriracha sauce (another chili sauce), and fresh jalepenos into the broth. Yummmm.

I like things very spicy, my tolerance is up to where tobasco (red) is no longer much of an issue for me. Things that still get me are certain types of asian chilies and Indian curries. Oh... but its so good going down!

I like spicy foods, but not enough to damage my taste buds.

Greg, here's another non-spicy food lover. I can't eat spicy food. I order my Thai with zero stars. I was brought up on a very bland British / Canadian Maritimes diet. My dad thought garlic was seditious. He ate pizza from time to time - but only the nasty ChefBoyardee pizza crust mix, nothing approximating the real thing. He never ate pasta as far as I know.

I am branching out from that limited diet, but I still can't stand food to be very spicy.
But that was when I ruled the world

Spicy = good. I do have my limits though. Once upon a time I was at a salsa tasting at a local Mexican place and made the mistake of trying some "Mad Dog 357" which is pretty much pure habanero paste and is the Scoville equivalent of downing 2 Habaneros. My lips and tongue were burning for a solid hour after the tasting.

Another great thing is Pico de Gallo

I thought Pico de Gallo was just onions, tomatoes, and cilantro in lime juice?

I ordered some beef vindaloo

Yummy! For fome reason I've been eating less and less meat over the last couple of years - just don't want to anymore - but beef vindaloo and beef xacuti I can't resist!

Expecially the xacuti. The way my old secretary from a couple of jobs ago makes it is just brilliant!

Damn! Now I'm going to have to call her and ask her to invite me to dinner.

I am half Gujarati so spice runs naturally through my blood. I love spicy food, especially Asian (Indian, Thai, Chinese...ect) of any intensity as long as there's not so much spice that it actually ruins the food.
