Get your mind out of the gutter, I'm not talking about THAT XXX.
When you go to a restaurant, whether it be Mexican, Thai or Indian, and they ask you how hot you want your food from a scale of 1 - 5, how would you respond to that?
I always order a "6", when they ask me that. And I am always overjoyed when a kitchen actually pulls that off for me. Everybody else at my table takes a little bite, and tells me, "Oh, my fucking gawd! How can you eat this? Are you insane?!?!?". At which point, I tell them, "Yeah, I am insane, because I am enjoying this very much."
Do you like to bring on the heat? Or do you prefer flavor over burn when it comes to Thai or Indian food?
