Spicy food is easy to come by in Los Angeles. There are such a variety of spices available, from the tongue-numbing Sichuan peppercorn to the elusive ghost chili. Here’s a tip: don’t wash it down with cold water. Water actually will spread the spice in your mouth and make the burning sensation worse. Yogurt, milk, or rice are the best pairings – if you can get your hands on them. Here are great places in Los Angeles to get your fix of super spicy dishes.
