How so?

Restaurants? Recipes? Just hot peppers? Hot sauces? Wings? Curries?

If you are in the downtown Toronto Chinatown area...I suggest you try:

Sichuan Garden
359 Spadina Ave
Toronto, ONT
M5T 2G3


And order the Shui Zhu Yu (sichuan style boiled fish)


Spiciest thing I have ever eaten and I was dating a girl that loved spicy food so I had to eat it....built up a bit of a tolerance but every time I ate this dish.....I would wake up at 3am with stomach aches and fiery explosions....goodness...

Sometimes China Garden makes their food REALLY SPICY that its inedible. Their Manchurian chicken dish is hotter than the Chili Chicken dish.

I used to find Korean food really spicy, but now that I eat at Song Cook so much, I've built up an immunity.

Since "spicy" is subjective...

I suggest the Ghost Pepper Burrito (hotter than hell version) from Mucho Burrito.
You can feel the tingly burn through your entire digestive system with the explosive fireworks at the end.
It's pronounced Throat Wobbler Mangrove

Korean food for the most part is pretty tame compared to other countries. Growing up Korean, I (like many other Koreans) would put a ton of hot sauce in my bi bim bap, but totally got my butt kicked by other cuisine's hot sauces.

Another place downtown: Salad King - anything on the menu with 20 chilies.

Can't help OP out with places in Scarorough, but most wing places have their own version of "Armageddon Wings".

The burrito place by me (Fat Bastard Burrito - Etobicoke) changed their hot sauce to incorporate ghost peppers. Yesterday, I got a line of hot sauce on my burrito. It was powerful, but didn't have a lingering sting like many other hot peppers. After finishing it, my mouth was fine, but my stomach hurt for roughly 30 mins before it settled down.

I think Korean hot sauce now has a sweet taste to it.

I think wasabi tastes hotter on certain fish than others. I could use a ton of wasabi on salmon and not taste it, but just a drop on hamachi and my eyes are watering - really opens up the sinuses.

Have this at restaurants (Bashu) and make at home...kids will eat it (almost in tears...big pissing contest between them).

Now that being said, with the sichuan peppercorn (numbing, not spicy), I find that you keep being drawn back in to eat more.

I don't understand Mandarin (except for wei jing) but whatever kind of hot pot this is looks really really spicy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjRPdUUXOM4

Can anyone tell me what regional dialect/accent the narrator has? I hear people speaking like this but I'm not sure where in China they would be from.

Bi Bim Bap sauce is made mostly of gochujang, I believe, so its mostly fermented bean, which is why it isn't that hot and maybe even a little sweet.

Szechuan Legend in Scarborough will provide plenty. Do what I (mistakenly) did, order Dan Dan noodles with extra sichuan pepper, however that's more numbing than hot. A dish like Lamb with Chili will be pretty hot. Eat each and every pepper in the dish and you'll feel it.

In Toronto downtown: Salad King. Order a dish with 20 chilies (max). Golden Thai curry is the best .
