haha they garnish it with peppers!  :laugh:

Dear lord I love the spicy foods but that would be too much for me, I think. Just looks horribly unpleasant. Dat shade of red tho...  :shocked: 

Also I remember when I worked as a cook in Canada we'd try to best our co-workers by eating whatever spicy thing we could get our hands on. Usually ended in tears and vomit. Good times!

As for Korea, 엽기떡볶이's highest level of heat was the spiciest thing I've eaten here. I could handle and enjoy it but the gf could not. Of course I downed a ton of 쿨피스 during. Wouldn't have been able to deal, otherwise. Anyway...

Good luck!


EDIT: Hope it doesn't end up like this  :smiley:

As a marker, Cheongyang Chillies are 10 000 on the Scoville Scale and the Bhut Jolokia Chillies are 1,041,427

Come on CO2, do it for Waygook!

Shittttt, I just re-read it. I have to eat 3 damn cutlets AND a bowl of rice in 20 mins. Spice aside, that's a lot of food!

I will do this for all waygooks who are incessantly asked, "Isn't it spicy?"

I'll have it filmed and I'll put it on youtube. In the meantime....... here's me at Cocoichibanya eating the level 10 stuff. My Korean buddy had the 3, he said it was spicy. hahahaa

So, did CO2 do it?

Maybe... RIP.

Here's a joke. In this video Koreans try...

1st a Big Mac with ghost peppers (how much was added really?)
2nd chicken wings with ghost pepper sauce (again, how much actual ghost peppers are in the sauce)
3rd Indian curry with ghost peppers (no idea of how many ghost peppers)
then
Last... a Korean ramen you can buy at any corner store (of course no Korean ramen has ghost peppers) and the four Koreans are falling down and acting like it's the spiciest food in the world!

Seriously?

I bet if any of them had taken one bite of an actual ghost pepper, they wouldn't have thought the Korean instant noodles was that spicy in comparison!

Personally the spiciest thing I had ever eaten was when I went to a soup curry restaurant in Japan and ordered the highest level of spice, then bragging to my friends that it wasn't spicy, poured a ton of more red pepper into it. I managed to finish the entire thing.
I also ended up learning something: even if you are extremely good at handling spicy food, your stomach has its own limit. I was sweating so profusely in the middle of the winter outside and I ended up puking all of the curry out- and it wasn't even digested properly I can imagine since it still tasted very much like the curry right out of the bowl...
Ever since then I've never really pushed myself to do any spicy food challenges. I just enjoy spicy food for what it is... no need to brag, no one cares and it's okay to challenge yourself... but I've been there and I don't think I'll ever want to experience that limit again.

Absolutely, I can handle pain in my mouth, that's not really that bad. But the gurgling and nausea and upsetness in the stomach. F'in unbearable.

You handled it much better than I would have.

I enjoy spicy food, but the pain thing... Iím a bit of a wimp.

Bull Dawk(불덕) It's chunks of spicy marinated chicken with a hot spicy sauce on it. There used to be a place near  the bar Woodstock in the Shinsheon area. There was alawys a big line up. They had iced cold beer. The beer just moved the spice around your mouth.

Pretty much sums up the bite it has. I guess that's why it is easy to remember the name of the dish.

At family gathering, we did 9 of the 10 bottles from FIRST WE FEAST (all but the last dab, as it wasn't available at the time).

I just pre-ordered a bottle of it from heatonist, but it will take awhile before it arrives, as production is slow, and you are limited to only two bottles.

Any of you tried any of them?

I had a tablespoon of Blair's Mega Death back in high school. Had to run 3 blocks to a pharmacy to get pepto-bismol.

Ouch.
