    EXTREME SPICY CHINESE FOOD CHALLENGE, SPICIER THAN THE SPICY NOODLE CHALLENGE! Some of the spiciest street food around the world, DEATH LEVEL SPICY, right here in Sichuan China! Chinese food is known to be spicy, but Sichuan food is known to be Deadly spicy! This is death level spicy! We live in Chengdu, Sichuan, China, eating as much delicious Chinese street food and street food around the world as we can. In this Spicy Hot pot Challenge video, we’re tasting one of the spiciest Chinese foods in the world, on the outskirts of Chengdu, Szechuan, the Sichuan Hot Pot!!
    Chengdu is a SPICY street food heaven that you need to travel to. I moved to Chengdu specifically for the food and have been eating Sichuan street food for 3 years now, but this was one level above the regular hot pot spice. I ordered “TE LA” extra spicy hot pot in Chengdu, Szechuan and couldn’t believe it when the hot pot arrived to my table in the hot pot restaurant, it was completely full of red chilies and Sichuan peppercorns, SO SPICY!! We just got back to Chengdu to eat a ton of Sichuan street food and will be going for more throughout Sichuan on a Chinese street food tour series soon! We can’t wait to share it with you!

    Over the past few years of living in Asia, I’ve been making delicious street food tour videos across Asia and around the world. We’ve eaten street food in Indonesia, Street Food in China (like Shanghai, Beijing, and Xinjiang Silk Road street food), a ton of street food in Malaysia and Street food in Thailand, and we are only just getting started! We’re going to keep filming these full on street food tour videos from around the world for you to enjoy!
    In this Chinese food video, the recipe was honestly like FULL of Chilies, I couldn’t believe it!
    The address is a little outside of Chengdu, so I recommend going to the same chain found everywhere in Chengdu, known as Xiaolongkan 小龙坎, but if you really want to come to the one we visited, it’s in Longquan, and this is the address:
    My name is Trevor James and I'm a hungry traveler and Mandarin learner that's currently living in Chengdu, Sichuan, China, eating up as much delicious Chinese street food that I can!
    I enjoy tasting and documenting as many dishes as I can and I'm going to make videos for YOU along the way! Over the next few years, I'm going to travel around the world and document as much food as I can for you! I love delicious food! This channel will show you real Chinese food and real local food, not that stuff they serve in the Buzzfeed challenge.
    Thanks for watching, and please feel free to leave a comment, suggestion, or critique in the comments below!
    Please make sure to subscribe, it's the best way to keep my videos in your feed, and give me a thumbs up too if you liked this food video, thanks, I appreciate it! You could also share the video too if you liked it, that would be awesome.

      I'm glad you're a kindred spirit Trevor James! I love spice as well. I eat it for at least 2 meals per day, and it varies which kind of cuisine it is. I just have to have everything extremely spicy. It's the best thing ever.

    I LOVE spicy food, and since moving to China, my spice tolerance has gone up by 10x (even just instant noodles here are lethal to an inexperienced westener, even if you "thought" you were used to spicy food such as mexican food, its nothing in comparison).
    But my problem with EXTREMELY spicy food, is that its just not really adding anything of value to the taste...
    I mean, if you feel literal PAIN eating, then whats the point? Food is supposed to be delicious, not painful.
    Spicyness is great for adding excitement and intensity to flavorful food, but NOT if it is so extreme that you cannot even enjoy the flavors without dying to pain. Then i just dont see the point in eating it, you might as well just take a brick of plaster and cover it in chilli powder. Because you're ruining every other ingredient and every other flavor in the dish.

    Too much of everything is not good. There is a required amount of spiciness your body can take. When taking too much spicy to a point when your body cannot handle, you will get a stomach ache. You will also get dizzy and feel nauseated. It is body defense mechanism at work. When you vomit, your esophagus will get irritated to a point it bleeds causing esophageal perforation.
    A simple reminder will not hurt. Love your body if you want to keep enjoying the wonders of the world.

    Chilli is awesome but there's a limit to how much chilli to place in a meal otherwise what is a spicy delicacy becomes a non edible nightmare and good food is wasted. Also here's some important medical advice: if you have medical heart problems do not consume strong chilli dishes

    I LOVE spice, but this amount is just unenjoyable. It's to the point where you're just eating chilis almost. That's not enjoyable for me - I still need other flavours. Hottest thing I ever ate was Thai chilis with chicken and rice. It was pure chilis, ground, sauced, and whole fried which was just too much.
    Still, I'd love to try this just to experience it.
