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".
I found the Korean food in Korea way more spicier than the food here to the point where I was practically begging for mercy. Even Koreans I've known from Korea say it's oddly sweet in Toronto. Even NY's Korean food was alot spicier I though (ie. Octopus Stirfry).

I've gone through my phase of hot foods. I've had 20 chillis plus a couple of extra spoonfuls of the flaky stuff at Salad King (was a competition between a co worker). Although I've been back and have had some dishes with 10 chillis and it was quite spicy.

Anything with chillis, seeds, and the oil with it will always be spicy. Yea, and some wing places use that additive type hot sauce.

The hot sauces with certain ingredients actually cannot be considered a sauce and is actually considered an additive. This from some show about hot sauce and pepper eating competition I saw on TLC once.

Just go to a good wing place and ask for the hottest wings they have. That's enough spice to kick your ***** ... though why you would put your mouth, stomach, and a-hole through that is beyond me.

Haha I know right!
I think I read some studies a few years back showing evidence that a desire for spicy food is related with masochism. I guess we're all just crazy. :twisted:

Salad King 20 chili is the spiciest food I've eaten at an establishment that I can remember.

A lot of Tamil/South Asian cuisines are very spicy, if you like your food with heat...try the curries @ Babu in Scarborough, yummy stuff.

When comparing the real spicy foods South Indian and Sri Lankan foods are very hot and spicy ( real real real spicy) . Tried a crab curry what my friend offered, just experienced a 1000volt in my tounge. Delicious but incredibly spicy.

Other spicy delicacies are no where near...

Like to try something even more spicier than above cuisines.

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.
毛肚 aka Omasum Hotpot from Sichuan

Standard/ formal beijing dialect...which is the standard dialect in China, so can't help you locate the region :/, but if those people can speak like the narrator its almost guaranteed they are from beijing, nanjing, shanghai or some of the other big cities.

Doubles from most any Trini place. With hot sauce. For some reason, I always find Carib hot made from those scotch bonnet peppers tougher to handle than some other stuff. Its just mean heat somehow.

I ask for "heavy" pepper at most west indian places when ordering doubles.

West indians eat some really spicy food, especially the old ladies, I know at least 2-3 old west indian women (60+) who can easily out class me when it comes to eating spicy food.
I don't know what their stomachs are made of.

Dont go to Wild wing, they have terrible "hot" wings, their "ring of fire" is not hot, and extremely vinegary.

All stars H-bomb wings are pretty hot (there E.L.E. wings are always unavailable when I go) they are good, the first time I ate them they won.
