I love spicy food!! When I was in England last year, it was horrible because they like thier food sooo bland. Ick. My friends from the UK always want to go somewhere plain for dinner when they are here. No fun.

However, the food I had in India was fabulous!! I don't even know all the stuff I hate, but it was sooo yummy...

Maybe that's so.. but I was in Ely about 2.5 hours from London. A village. When I went to Cambridge and ate in a pub, that food was bland too. That was just my experience though!

I guess for me its not all bad. As I can pick up and taste really subtle flavors that perhaps some people miss. There are some really complex flavor combos that have passed by my mouth that have been so wonderous. And sometimes (like tonight) i just try to numb the pain with enough booze to get stuff down. Went to a oaxacan restaurant. We do get some of the milder foods. I also have some pretty bad texture issues as an added bonus. But I still enjoy food... just enjoy it in a different way I guess.

Yup! Jalapenos, habaneros...all cusisines... just bring it on!
I grew up on Midwestern meat-and-potatoes meals, too. Neither of my parents likes spicy food, so we always had pretty bland food. After living on my own, and living near a lot of great ethnic restaurants, I have grown to really like spicy, flavorful food. I have to be careful, though, because my stomach can't handle hot foods very well - I get really bad heartburn. I discovered this also happens to my older brother, so I guess our bland-food upbringing didn't prepare us well for our spicy-food fondness.
