Watch the Pain
Came across these two videos from a duo called Local Frequencies.
The focus is on Little Tokyo's Orochon Ramen, home of the eat-at-your-own-risk spiciest bowl of ramen.
I've been eating a lot of spicy food lately. Although my tolerance is growing, I'm definitely still weak when it comes to the hotter end of the spectrum.
The video seems to prove something that I've been noticing over the past few months (and feel free to refute). Mexican salsas (especially the greenish orange habanero-based sauce from Chichen Itza) are much more painful than their Thai or Chinese equivalents.
