Getting addicted to eating Samyang Super Spicy Ramen...

Lately there is a craze of people challenging each other over who can accept the spicy ramen challenge and well, when my youngest daughter got caught up in it, I got caught up in it with her..



Now this challenge has seen many people trying it, some failing miserably or crying pitifully after eating it, some fanning their mouth, while some swore never to do it again....


We got our first spicy ramen with the chicken in a bikini picture in Seoul at the Lotte Mart... then we tried it out.. and ohhh the satisfying bite of spiciness and flavours were  pretty overpowering but it wasn't anything I could not handle.

Before this I have eaten Pelicana chicken's spiciest and also Kyochon chicken's spiciest... and while in Seoul at some little food stores we had very spicy food too.. including a seafood rice which was so spicy but so satisfying...



So it was nothing we could not handle without water... hahahaha

So we had the sexy bikini chicken super spicy ramen and when we got back to Malaysia, my youngest daughter was beyond herself with delight as she manage to grab a packet of Samyang Super Spicy Noodles -pack of 5 at Giant...and we all had it again.. and I think I have gotten addicted...



I seemed to be craving the super spicy ramen pretty regularly now and from having to drink lots of water, I can now manage not to drink any water until I finish the whole  plate/packet.. not bad huh... 

My youngest daughter as I took a video of her is also very cool when eating the Ramen, except for some sniffing...

The question some people would ask would be... isn't it harmful to eat so.super spicy food...it might be bad for the stomach or our colon...


Let me share 5 health benefits of eating super fiery food.....

A longevity boost: a study in 2015 that included over half a million Chinese found that people who consumed spicy — that is, scorching — foods six times a week reduced their risk of death by 14 percent during the course of the seven-year study. Consuming fiery foods just two days a week lowered the risk by 10 percent, compared to people who ate milder fare.

Weight loss: Studies have shown that hot peppers can help curb appetite and speed metabolism. In a 2011 study, researchers from Purdue University found people felt more satiated after eating spicy foods. Another study found that people consumed less fat after eating high amounts of hot peppers. There's probably also an effect on our metabolism. And there is some data to show that capsaicin [the ingredient that produces the scorched feeling in your mouth] can increase the ability to burn calories. There is also a possibility that the fire in your mouth slows food consumption, a senior dietitian and professor at the Fielding School of Public Health at UCLA noted. If you eat more slowly, you're more likely to notice your body's satiety cues.

Pain relief: Capsaicin has been said to be able to spark the release of the body's own opioids — endorphins.


Anti-inflammatory effects: Capsaicin is believed to possibly help with autoimmune conditions, like rheumatoid arthritis as well since studies noted that these types of illnesses are less common in countries where a lot of spicy food is consumed.

Antimicrobial effects: Studies show that capsaicin has antibacterial effects, and possibly also to a lesser degree, antifungal effects. This is why hot peppers have been used as a food preservative...



Bottom line here is my daughter and I can eat spicy and we enjoy our spicy food and we want more... huhuhu... sadly it seem it is hard to find really spicy Korean food here in KL, I guess more Koreans can actually eat more spicy food then Malaysians.. hahaha
