Love it hot? Then read on
There are heaps of places where you can get hot and spicy foods and these are my 5 favourites picks.
Two Fat Indians Address: 524 Beaufort Street, Mt Lawley
Many Indian dishes are either hot or spicy and often can be both. At the Two Fat Indians, they serve authentic Indian food from various regions throughout India.
Their menu is extensive and has all your favourites, plus a few that I had not seen anywhere else before. There are things like the Laal Maas, which is a spicy lamb recipe from Rajasthan, Chole Bhatura, a Delhi chickpea curry with fried bhatura bread and so much more that is unusual, hot and spicy!
Here you can have a banquet or just a simple meal but either way, you are sure to enjoy the delicious flavours (and you do not have to have it burning hot if this is not your thing).
In Indian culture, cooking is very important and this includes the use of various flavours and spices. They have a wide variety of cooking styles and dishes and their food is always full of flavour. In a traditional Indian meal, you usually have two or three main courses with many side dishes such as chutneys or roti bread. They also make delicious desserts, though these are often very sweet.
The types of food served depends on the region of the person cooking it, however, the most important staples in their diet is rice, flour and pulses such as lentils. Curries are of course, also very important in this culture.
The chefs at this restaurant come from different regions of India and only use authentic cooking techniques which are unique to Indian cooking.
Fire & Spice Fusion Restaurant Address: Shop 8 / 298 Mill Point Road, South Perth
This restaurant has food from Nepal to India. They offer deliveries as well as dining-in and can cater to children as well. The food from the Himalayan mountains of Nepal is just part of their extensive menu and their food has exotic flavours and spices.
At Fire & Spice Fusion, you are able to order from very spicy and hot to not hot and spicy at all, so if you love spicy but someone else in the party does not, then you are all covered at this restaurant!
Szechwan Zen Restaurant
Address: Shop 8 & 9, 375 William Street, Perth
If you love hot spicy food, make sure you visit this restaurant. I have been here and most of us liked the food we were served (the one who did not, found his meal was a bit too hot).
Their servings were very large and their hot spicy dishes were delicious! The inside of this restaurant is beautifully decorated in bright red and gold fittings, and as some Asian restaurants do, they have both roundtables and also a few ordinary tables.
Szechwan food is known to use a lot of chilli in their meat dishes and here you can order extra hot sauces if you are brave!
Address: Suite 2, 137 Newcastle Street, Northbridge
This restaurant blends modern Western food with traditional Chinese food. As with most other restaurants, you have a non-chilli option. They have some unusual but interesting meals such as boiled sliced pork ears with chilli sauce and chilli oil.
You can check out their lengthy menu here, As mentioned in the last restaurant, Szechwan and Hunan dishes are known for being amongst the spiciest food in China, so this is another place to go if you love spicy food. This restaurant features chilli in many of the authentic dishes, using not only pigs ears but things like intestines, tripe, gizzards and the like.
La Vida Urbana
Address: Shop 1, 228 Carr Place, Leederville
This is, as the name implies, Mexican food and here you can expect lots of jalapenos. They use both fresh ones as well as the dried ones, also known as chipotle.
La Vida Urbana uses local and organic food to bring you authentic Mexican food. Once again, they have degrees of spiciness and make food such as spicy nachos, chilli popcorn and tampiquena. Tampiquena is one of the most popular meat dishes in Mexico - each ingredient represents a landscape. The platter itself represents "the Huasteca region, the rump steak represents the Panuco River, the enchiladas represent the Huasteco fields."
