Looking for really spicy foods

I love spicy food but no one can make it hot enough for me. Maybe I'm a freak but I love the burn. I've been to Orochon Ramen and had their special that's the kind of heat I'm talking about!

Any suggestions?

  1. One word...Jitlada. Ask your hostess, Jazz Singsanong, to see the SOUTHERN Thai menu. Enjoy!

    1. Go to Ondal 2 and tell them you want it 10/10 on the spicy scale and then get out your terry towels for nose blowing, eye watering and brow wiping.

      1. I don't remember the name, but there is a sushi place, I believe on Van Nuys blvd that is suppose to make really spicy sushi. Some where you have to sign a release. East India Grill on LaBrea makes these spicy wings, and they will make them as spicy as you want.

        1. I second Jitlada. At the bottom of the authentic Southern Thai menu, you'll find "The Spicy Challenge". I tried to order it the first time I went there, but I listened to our waitress and ordered the next spiciest dish, which she said was a 5 on a scale of 1-10. It was by far the hottest dish I've ever eaten, which caused sweat to pour forth from my face and scalp, followed shortly thereafter by a terrible case of the hiccups. With the spicy challenge dishes rated at a 10, I can't begin to fathom a dish twice as hot as what I ate. Give it a try and report back to us...

          1. try akbar indian. they have a chili meter (1-5) and if you ask them to make it a 5 (and say you know that 5 is really really spicy), you can get some good spicy food. the vindaloo, obviously, is very spicy. but they also have a dish called prawns madras that they make up to a 5 and it is really good. the spice meter can be hit or miss. but i feel like it's that way everywhere (even jitlada where i have never been able to get really spicy food no matter how hard i ask).

            btw-this comment is only for santa monica and mdr locations.

            the suicide wings at hogies and wings are pretty spicy.


            and, there's always the red sauce at king taco! killer. the green is good too - but not quite as hot
