Can You Tolerate Spicy Food?

edited May 2012 in food
I used to eat so many different spicy foods when I was little. I come from an East Indian family so of course we have to have traditional food spicy. But nowadays I just can't take it anymore that I have to have a glass of milk with me every time. All i can feel is my whole face burning up. Then after eating I have to keep drinking milk till my stomach cools down :sweatingbullets: Whenever I have butter chicken with rice for example, I have to add a little butter milk because it's too much to handle.

    Yeah, I think I tolerate spicy food a little bit better than the average person.  I simply like having the hot stuff.  Chili peppers in pho.  The skinny red peppers in Kung Pao chicken.  Pepperoncinis with Greek food.  Jalapenos in Mexican food.  I like eating my Thai food a little bit spicier than average.  And wherever possible I like to use condiments like hot sauce, hot mustard, horseradish, wasabi, tabasco, or Sriracha sauce to accompany my food as applicable.  But I don't necessarily like it THAT blazing hot.  Sometimes it gets to a point where the heat index is so much that you don't really taste and enjoy the food - ie. "911" style hot chicken wings.  I like to have things with a bit of a bite but not to the point that it burns my tongue or scalds the roof of my mouth and lips.

    if it's too spicy it ruins my appetite, it's like poison to me

    I prefer lightly seasoned foods, mild spicy

    i love spicy foods. but i hate the ones that are just painful instead of flavorful. i love trying to taste layers and layers of flavor in a dish. but when i eat out, the spicy foods are usually just intolerably spicy with absolutely no flavor. i hate those types of spicy.

    i'm not the more tolerant for spiciness. i have managed to build up my tolerance though.

    I noticed people that are use to eating extra hot & spicy foods always say normal foods have no flavor? it seems like they have lost some sensitivity to their taste buds and cant taste food unless it's heavy in spices or hot peppers

    I <3 spicy foods, can't eat without a chilli sauce/ a relatively spicy dish.
    there is a flavor, it's just not complete without the spicy taste.
    it's like something is missing you know?

    I love spicy food. I use to put chill oil or hot sauce in everything, but now i kind of stop doing that.
    But when I do eat spicy food i would just pour more hot sauce on top of it soo good~

    @duh123

    I heard that too, but it doesn't seem to stand true for me or not yet

    Yeah that kinda how its like for me. Unfortunately food without spice just isn't good to me anymore >< thats why I worry when I cook for people :o when I cook for them I'm not sure if the food is already "good" or it's just me. I try not to put spice in it but without the spice I just don't think it tastes good, but with a normal person they're fine with it so I'm never sure..D:...

    but anyways, I love love spicy food! haha. I have a lot of friends who say they love spicy food and I get excited cause I'm able to share dishes with them but as soon as they eat it, they can't handle it. Everyone tells me my kind of spicy is a whole other level :sweatingbullets:

    Even Habanero peppers don't phase me.

    Yeah! The spicier the better. Most cuisines are mild anyway. Thai, Indian, Korean... They're not that spicy. I find Hunan cuisine spicy and I love Sichuan food.

    I have super low tolerence but I love to eat it all the same. I always have to bring milk with me whenever I go to korean restaurants. gochujang for my beloved dol sot bibimbap and tofu hot pots are generally too spicy for me but it's too yummy for me to care

    I like spicy food, when I cook I always like to add three kind of spicy peppers.
    When I make pasta I like to add some spice to it flavor.

    No wonder you enjoyed "Blair's 16 Million Reserve" although you had to throw the whole pot out...
    We can create the spiciest dish but which country would that be associated with? (since people like to associate spiciness with country)
    Maybe the spiciness from hell since people could pretty much die or end up in coma... I haven't found any youtube video of someone eating a food that contains a large portion of "Blair's 16 Million Reserve" in there... Damn... I'm still waiting to see someone doing that and be like "Nahh that was nothing".

    the pot of soup was on an entirely different level. it was just unedible. you have to try it yourself to understand. but 700 bucks is an expensive way to commit suicide.

    these guys are probably the closest to surviving the 16 million nirvana.

    I used to not tolerate anything spicy, even pepper got me bad. But after travelling through Asia and with friends who love spicy food I've grown to like it.
    Because I grew up not eating anything spicy it was hard a first.

    I started easy, sweet chilli sauce, even that got me, but I got used to it.

    Korean food I love and still find spicy, but its a good spicy I can tolerate, One time my friend order a 3 level spicy dish and my tongue was totally on fire...I think she made me immune very immune.

    Unfortunately, I can't. I don't know why though. I'm from the Philippines (a Bicolano: Bicolanoes LOVE spicy food) and we've got Chinese blood in our blood (which are quite good at eating spicy foods, too). My family LOVES eating spicy stuffs and I'm the only one who can't stand even a small bite. It's awkward .____.
