Question about Thai Food

I have only had it 3 times, all within the last 2 months. I've always heard that you order it on a spiciness scale of 1-10, and that 10 is supposed to be extremely spicy.

First time I ordered I got a 6, and it wasn't spicy at all, then I got an 8, and it barely registered. Last time I went 9 and it still didn't crave my spicy hunger.

I'm going to get a 10 next time, but wtf is up with all the hype?

P.S. I got Pad Thai each time, I don't know if that's just not a spicy dish or what.

For the record, my 3 times were at 3 different restaurants. I'll ask for Thai spicy next time.

I want to branch out, but Pad Thai is so good.

The food is good and fairly authentic compared to other Thai places I've tried... just wasn't impressed by the 'Thai hot', but I've built up quite a bit of tolerance. And you can't beat the second lunch for a buck. Their Thai iced coffee is really good, too, and it's a good choice with really spicy food.

Mmmmmm, now I want Thai for lunch.

As for the really spicy stuff, as I've gotten older, I still like it, but it doesn't like me. I don't order it really hot anymore. Not a fan of the screaming flamethrower shits that come later.

I've only had it one time...at a resort in Thailand. I was able to take two bites before my eyes were watering and my ears were sweating. And I didn't even order it spicy. I think the staff saw a farang and decided to have some fun.

Dude, you need to branch out...you're missing some great food. Thai curries are awesome, and if you're ever in a Thai place that has access to good, fresh seafood, order some soft shell crab curry. And get mango & sticky rice for dessert.

Even a good amount of Jalapenos can do it to me now. Damn getting old(er).

every Thai place I've been to you have the following options

Mild (+)
Medium (+)
Hot (+)
Thai Hot

(+) meaning you want it a little hotter than Mild/Medium/Hot, but not to the next step


Pad Thai is the California Roll of Thai food.

I think it varies from place to place.
One place I go, a '5' (or medium) is ****ing super hot. Good, but hot. I LOVE spicy food.

Other places, I've asked for Hot and it comes out with hardly any kick.

Once I found a place I really liked, I stick with them so I know what to expect.

As for branching out from the Pad Thai:

Tom Ka Tofu (or Tom Ka Gai if you want chicken) is awesome shit. Seriously. It's like the best soup flavor combination in existence. It's also usually one of the best values on the menu, as it's usually priced like an appetizer but can easily be eaten as an entree with rice.

If you really like the flavor of Pad Thai and want to branch out a bit with a few more vegetables: Pad See Eeu.

All curries are awesome and worth trying: red, green, massaman, panang.

Thai Hot. "Thai Spicy" just sounds stupid. Don't allow the restaurant people think you're stupid.
