No matter how much I love Japanese food, I start craving for spicy food after a while. I cannot go without my regular chili fix. The sort that burns my mouth and stomach, and makes me perspire so much that beads of sweat form above my brow, lips and start trickling down my cheeks. Like this bowl of beef soto with tripe made by C’s Indonesian helper. I ate the soto with a generous helping of her homemade green chili paste, and started making hissing noises ‘cos it was sooooo spicy.
As we Singaporeans always like to say when we feel good about something – SHIOK ah!
