    Ask for Indonesian hot-your life will never be the same.

    Of course the same applies to most Thai and Indian places-if you want exceptionally strong chile they'll do it for you but you have to ask.

      ohh so at the indonesian place is the dish called hot-you life?

      what would u normally order at the tang thai? just anything and u just ask them to make it exceptionally hot?

      My brother's girlfriend is from Thailand and often eats at the Noodle Box. I believe she asks for her spice level "Suicide Hot".

          The problem with Noodle Box is that each spice level just means more sambal oelek. This means that if you order the suicide hot, your just getting food that tastes like sambal (I think suicide hot is 3 tablespoons).

          Alvin Garden for Hunan and S&W Pepperhouse for Sichuan.

            +1 on Alvin Garden -- spiciest food I've ingested in Canada, tasty and inexpensive too. Still haven't had my head melted by any of the Sichuan I've tried in recent quest to understand the real thing but I'm sure they have the technology to do so at S&W :-).
