  • 5

I want to take a friend out for a birthday dinner, and he likes really spicy foods. What's the best choice for us?
It should be open on Sunday.

  1. Linda, serving Thai food at the Shops of Don Mills, is open Sundays. You can custom-order the spice level. A heat level of 3 chili peppers is medium spicy, and 5 chili peppers is quite spicy for most people I know. One can order up to 20 chili peppers. I don't go beyond 5 chili peppers.

    I like their soups, beef panang & Thai Islamic noodles.

    1. Ba Shu Ren Jia and Konner are my two spicy places. though the latter has toned it down a bit, sadly. Though I suppose you could always request it to be spicier!

      Cold pig's ears at Ba Shu and the Preserver Youlou pork at Konner are two very good dishes. I wrote up about the latter and need to get back to Ba Shu for photos...

      I think if you just want fire, Home of Hot Taste will do the trick. That's North of Yonge and Steeles (ish).

      1. I vote for Hot Spicy Spicy at Leslie and finch. That place is so spicy, the air is spicy (no joke).

        1. For Indian food Banjara is good and you choose the level of spice you want, medium is usually spicy enough for me so I'd imagine they get pretty hot.

          1. I like Chili Secret and they can custom make dishes to be extra spicy. If you take their chili chicken dish, it's pretty spicy (lots of birds eye chillis cooked in there, possibly already dried but seedless). That's a pretty standard Schezuan dish. The last time we got it, the person ordering made the mistake of asking it extra-extra spicy and they dumped tons of Schezuan peppercorn on top. it was practically inedible.

            You can't go wrong at almost any schezuan restaurant, and I second JLunar's recs for Ba Shu Ren Jia and Konner. Alternatively, you could try ethopian food. Ethiopia house, while not my favourite, serves stuffed Jalapeno peppers and can make their food partciularly spicy. Plus the coffee ceremony makes for a fun treat.

            Duffs makes very spicy wings, but I'd never recommend that for a special occasion (although the university student me used to do that often).

            Although they're now closing, a satay sub from NY Subs with a Grace ginger beer was a very spicy experience that I'm not eagre to reproduce.
