Yep, never looked back. Wonderful combination of tastes.

An even more painful story regarding heat is when two friends of mine succumbed to that dumbest of activities in any bar. Being offered red hot chilli peppers and all the bravado that comes with it. I saw them through the window of the pub they later joined me in walking bow legged very carefully. Of course after the tasting they eventually used the men's room without washing their hands BEFORE as well as after. Boy did they regret it!

I'm sure it's happened to the unwary the world over, but it caused quite some mirth for the other regulars that day. And they never taunted me again about my caution with all things hot....

Haha...funny...and gross.
The closest I got to that was in a Vodka Bar in town (Liverpool) and someone would buy a rack of those random, flavoured vodka shots and everyone had to down one (or ten).
Well, one time, I got the chilli vodka shot!
Legged it to the toilets in The Flash Time!!
Threw Up!!
Downed a pint of water...and then onto the next pub smile

Someone once gave me a chilli pepper vodka in a vodka bar, and told me it was something else. 20 years later i can still remember how quickly it ruined my night. Couldn't taste a thing after that. Nightmare. Though i do like fairly spicy food.

I once ate a piece of scotch bonnet for the hell of it. Had the hiccups for about ten minutes. Ok apart from that.

Ever since I was a kid I've enjoyed spicy foods. Nowadays, I love spicy Vindaloo, Madras, Thai curry, spicy chili, mustards, horseradish, and hot sauces of all kinds.

However, heat for heat's sake is a no-no. I want the heat to complement the flavor, not overwhelm it.

This Friday is "Full English Breakfast" night, as we'll be having breakfast for dinner.

Can't wait to try those curry beans!

Is it possible to have Pork Rolls and Sausage Pies?

Mrs. Phelps is "scared for me" because I'm going to eat the steak-and-kidney pie.

Ate currywurst for the first time today. I'm not exactly a stranger to German food, but somehow I had been denied this heavenly meal before now. I am quite hooked on the stuff. The German restaurant where I'm a regular offers it as a lunch special, and I cannot wait until the next time I get to eat it.

Any other currywurst fans here?

This thought is disturbing.

Currywurst is great, especially eaten outdoors on a cold day as you're bodging about a christmas market.

I just bought a Fray Bentos Meaty Steak Pud, which still comes in a tin (shaped like a sand castle) but the bonus being, it looks more user friendly to open and it can be heated in the microwave in 3 minutes (similar to the way you heat those sweet little treacle puds and such, tipped up onto a plate...those original Fray Bentos ones in the plate/bowl shaped tins take nearly an hour).
The look of disgust I got from Carole when she saw it in the trolley was worth the £1.39 I paid for it.
I think I will be eating it (with mashed potatoes) on my own.

I've only ever had currywurst in Berlin, outdoors in January (so it was very cold) but I remember it being very nice.

I'm jealous! Fray Bentos have become a holy grail at the Dacha Phelps.

Having the steak-and-kidney and chicken curry pies tomorrow with mashed potatoes and possibly Heinz beans.

That video doesn't inspire confidence Jim! Just as I remember my own experience. Shame, because I do like cheese and onion pasties. The bakery chain Greggs do lovely ones over here. The knack is to get them when they're still warm, but not just out of the oven so they take the skin off your lips. I like to get 'stuck in', so warm is best...

Just finished homemade tortillas. The filling was a mixture of mince meat, bell pepper, red onion, oranges, limes, corn, chilli bean sauce and a mixture of spices ( dad secret recipe). Delicious not too much feeling bloated afterwards.

All too true. We all know this!

Cheese and onion pies and pasties are nice but too often pie shops would pad them out with potato and giving them a weird overall taste in the half the places I had them.
