Spicy Food

I am the eldest daughter of two very wonderful parents with woefully mild palettes. Recently I moved to the city after spending 22 years in Vermont. Where do I go for spicy noodle and meat dishes in midtown west?

      I was gonna say the same thing.

      A few blocks further south, there are a whole slew of Korean restaurants. My favorite is Madangsui, but I think of them as a barbecue specialist. I'm not sure which Korean restaurant in Koreatown makes the best Jigaes and noodle dishes.

    2. you could go to Wondee Siam on 9th Ave...i'm not a fan of everything there, but the yum moo yang (grilled pork salad) is very spicy, and i'm sure you can get a decent spicy noodle dish...

      1. You can get authentic Indian curries at Minar. Ask them to make your vindaloo "Desi spicy."
