Lasang Pinoy Sundays - Spicy

Chili and hot and everything pizzazz! (bwahahaha ano daw?)

Hubby obviously acquired his dad's palate preference, that of spicy foods. I on the other hand, could not stand eating spicy foods without constantly drinking a glass of water (only water).

Spicy (foods) is not considered as one of the basic tastes. The five basic tastes only include sweetness, bitterness, sourness, saltiness and Umami...spicy(hotness) being a sensation. Nonetheless, it is one sensation that most Mexican, Indian, Vietnamese, Korean, and Thai cuisines have in common.

I found Spicy Vinegar, dried chili flakes, chiu chow chili oil, thai sweet chili chicken sauce, and dried chilis in our cupboard...I forgot to include the hot bagoong from Barrio Fiesta!

For more hotness, visit SpiCes. Congratulations on the 3rd year Ces!

Join now and help me win a set of silver measuring spoons! lol =D

hindi rin ako mahilig sa spicy food dati. pero ngayon tumataas na tolerance ko sa ganito. minsan ako na naghahanap ng sili.

Onga pala Syel, Indonesian cuisine is also counted as spicy =D I'm trying to acquire the habit hubby has...

Ooooh...what a "hot" post (literally)! Hahaha!

Like you, spicy food does not agree with me too well also although the furthest I could go in the "spice-o-meter" would probably be dipping chicharon Cebu in vinegar with siling labuyo - yum! :)
