Ouch! Ouch!

Today I went to an authentic Thai eatery which also acts as a Thai grocery store. It has been around for many years now but it used to operate as an eatery during limited hours. Only recently it started to keep regular hours so here we are.

Long before the boat noodles appear on the local scene, this place has been serving Thai pork noodle. There are two sizes - normal (MYR5) and full option (MYR8). I thought full option means more ingredients and not more noodles so I ordered the full option. For the Thai pork noodle, there are 3 choices for the broth - hot and sour, thickened (dark soup), or clear soup.

And I made a mistake here. I thought since this is an authentic Thai eatery, must eat spicy food so I ordered the hot and sour although I can't take spicy food. Ended up my mouth was burning and water kept dripping from my mouth and eyes.  Ended up I ate only a few mouthfuls and asked my spouse to finish it.

For you who can take very spicy food, how does it feel like? Doesn't your tongue and mouth burn? What sensation do you feel in your mouth? I felt like I was being tortured, it burned until my mouth was so painful. So if I ever want to punish myself, I will eat this hot and sour Thai pork noodle again.

Hot and Sour Thai Pork Noodle - Full Option (MYR8). For the normal size, the noodle was served in a coconut shell. Next time I will order the thickened broth normal serving to show the coconut shell.

Closed up. Not red in colour but very, very spicy. Be warned.

As usual, you who like spicy, spicy food can add more chili to the noodle.

Will post more food from here in the next post.

  1. Whenever I take spicy food, I will have a itchy sensation in my throat, indicating that I will have sore throat soon, I cannot take spicy food but I cannot resist curry

    1. I see you are still awake. So am I. No burning sensation in the mouth and tongue at all? What about after eating the hottest chili padi?

  2. They use cili padi in Thai cuisine, my missus loves that so so so much! We always have a bag of those in our fridge...

    1. So does the spiciness burn your mouth and tongue and send tears streaming down your face?

  3. The food looks appetizing and yummy! Must visit it one day. It's the same place as where Food Foundry is - the cafe that my hubs loves to go to for millicrepe cakes!

    BTW, if you're interested in the products you commented in my blog, you can email me at shireenyong@gmail.com :)

  4. I don't know about others, but for me, I love spicy food not because I have a strong tolerance to it. Of course I feel the burn in my mouth. But that feeling is exactly the reason why I go for it. If a bowl of spicy noodles does not leave me in teary eyes and panting for relief that is not forthcoming, then I would deem it as a lousy bowl of noodles.

    I don't know, I suppose it is the same reason why people drink alcohol and get drunk, and go back for it again... :D

    1. I guess it does not cause you as much pain as say your gout pain the time you experienced it in your knee. For me, the burning pain in my mouth is worst than the worst toothache that I have had and I have a strong tolerance for pain too but not this spicy burning pain because it is just too much, not only am I teary eyes, water keep coming out of my nose too which I cannot control. Does water comes out of your nose?

      Guess the nerves ending in my mouth is just too sensitive but that does not explain the water from the nose does it? So puzzling. *scratches head*

  5. I had a tomyam noodle soup once that the kitchen prepared extra spicy even though I did not request for that. It was quite a torture even though I generally like spicy food. Like you, my eyes and nose became watery like I was crying. LOL!

  6. Different people have different reactions to spicy food. I can take spicy food but don't like it overly hot, otherwise it'll just numb your taste buds and you can't taste anything after that. For me, if it's extra hot, I'll just feel a burning sensation on my tongue...and that's it! No teary eyes, nose or anything. No breaking out into a sweat either (like my hubby) :D

    1. Just on the tongue? No burning sensation all over inside the mouth? That's good, can eat spicy spicy food.

  7. I love spicy food but not too spicy until I cannot enjoy the food or feel the taste of the food. If too spicy, my tongue and ears will have burning sensation and it is very, very uncomfortable.

  8. Poor thing. For me, I love spicy food. Of course there is a limit to my intake of spicy food but you can say I have better tolerance than you. Hahaha.

    Tongue burning and nose start to run even to me, that food was not that spicy. Lol.

    1. How do you react to very, very, very spicy food then? Guess you must go on a quest to find the most spicy food since your genes do not seem to react much to spicy food. Find a very spicy food that gives you more pain than the most pain you have ever encountered. What is the most pain you have experienced so far?

  9. I'm not sure if I could handle it too spicy.

  10. I can take spicy food, but not too spicy.. If it's too spicy, sweat and water will be out from my cheeks, under my eyes, makes my whole face oily after that, don't like that..

    1. I don't know what is the hottest chili. HHmmm, maybe they intended to call it Flame but someone made a typo.

  13. I don't take very spicy food. Just moderately spicy is ok.

  14. Ooo this looks seriously good. You know, when I started work I couldn't take spicy food after 3 years in UK. Boss took us out for Thai food and my nose was running big time. After that I resolved to train myself. So every night, for dinner, I'd take spicy food. No one to see me blowing nose in my rented room.

    And now... I'm not too bad! Haha.
