Hi-my name is Saul, and I'm a wasabi addict. :p~  :wideeyed: :p~

I REALLY want to try Indian food again.  :wideeyed: Indian food is basically like Puerto Rican food, only MUCH spicier. Puerto Rican food is a lot of rice and beans-mostly red beans-served with beef, and sometimes, steak. I'm a fan of the black bean, though.  :cool:

Anyway-at this one Indian restaurant  that had curried beef and rice, with green sauce. Now for those new to hot sauces: Green usually means H-O-T!!!! Every green hot sauce I've had so far is SCALDING. Newbies beware. You have to start small and S-L-O-W-L-Y build up your tolerance.

At this time, my tolerance was pretty darn high-but this was the time I overdid it. I had a forkful of rice with green hot sauce, and then I made the mistake of biting into a hot pepper!

:hehe:  :eek4:  :hehe:

I was SOOOOOO tempted to go for the ice tea. My friends dared me to drink it. (I was with some other spicy food buffs). I held out. The fire in my mouth eventually faded into a hot numbness. I couldn't taste any of the food afterwords!!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  My mouth was that way for a good 15-20 minutes.

No hot stuff for me, never liked it. I do go to ethnic restaurants that specialize in cuisine that can be hot but I've found they usually have a mild option. I find those quite tasty usually.

But Saul, since you like hot I would think the wasabi with cream cheese on bagel idea might be quite tasty.

Hmm-I'd like to actually try mixing some with cream cheese, and putting it on a bagel...

Nonny, did you say you lived in Japan? If so, then this comment is for Saul, I saw on the News sometime ago where someone had made wasbi ice cream and if wasn't Japan then sorry...but it has been done (I hate it when my memory fails...sorry :( )

I draw the line at sweets, though, but I'd try almost anything once.   :lol:  In terms of Japanese dessert, I like red bean. Red bean ice cream, red bean shakes, cakes with red bean in them-YUM! :drool:

:D

Toasted garlic bagel with smoked salmon cream cheese, and some wasabi mixed into the cheese.  Wash it down with a side order of beef bullion, with some red bean ice cream for dessert to finish it off.

My dad would eat leftover hamburgers cold with peanutbutter on them...for breakfast. I haven't tried it yet, but I know someday I will.

As for wasabi, one of the best things you can do it find someone who doesn't know what it is and tell them it is sweet. Then try to hide your snickering as they place a big ol' glob in their mouth. Muhahahahaha.   :devil:

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>




A friend gave me some wasabi coved nuts. I love hot food, I have yet to find a hot sause that I can't handle, but I spit out the peanut. I suddenly couldn't breath.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


In Japanese supermarkets you can buy wasabi-coated green peas in a bag which you can munch on as a snack!  :D  I haven't had those in a while, but I used to pig out on them!

Actually, I do!  :)  I have periods where I eat hot stuff. Sometimes it gets boring, and I like variety. I haven't had wasabi in a LONG time-but I love it. The same goes for those wasabi-covered green peas, which are VERY good. :thumbs-up:

The green sauce I referred to is not QUITE as strong as wasabi, but you do have to be careful with it and not get carried away. There is a brown hot sauce put out by this same company, which is is quite a few steps above this one. That sauce you have to be REALLY careful with. Why? Let's just say you'll feel the burn coming out of your aft regions too, if you're not careful.   :blush:

:hehe:

Minor vent coming up:

Recently, my McDonalds (and others?) dropped their super-size (or whatever the size about large is) drinks and fries, complete with newspaper articles about how they were cutting back because of health concerns blah blah blah.

I could care less about the fries, but I *really* miss the super-size drinks.  Diet Coke is my caffeine-of-choice, and one of those suckers lasted me until lunch.

And then, to add insult to injury, I'm driving through this morning for my wussy little "large" drink, and what do they have on the wall but some poster for this obscene-looking triple cheeseburger thing that made my arteries clog up just looking at it.  If they can sell this garbage, they can sell me a giant diet coke, darn it!  :)

You should hit White Castle, then. I go there occasionally (my bus route takes me to a school near one). Their idea of "medium drinks" is similar to an EXTRA LARGE drink at McDonalds or Burger King!!  :eek4:

Those drinks WILL rupture your bladder.  :Oo:  I usually order "small" drinks from them, but their small is a very large serving.  :eek:
