Can Spicy food be addicting?

Quine | | Aug 21, 2010 12:16 PM

Recently, I found a new local Mexican restaurant that is pretty authentic from what I can gather. (never had real Mexican but the place is filled with locals who are mexican)

I am enjoying trying all the new and unknown items, this sure isn't Chevy's! First and foremost is the spiciness! I've had good spicy in Thai, Cajun, Indian and a few other cuisines and thought I was pretty good on it. But this food such kicks it up a few level. My first taste usually seems to cause a beaded sweat and almost a panic saying "I'll die if I eat this ." Then a second taste and more, Yum, the various dishes are very complex in the chili sauces. I am now having lunch there 2-3 times a week, to try more items and learn the cuisine and also because I now seem to crave, yes, actually crave that heat.

Anyone else find this so? Is it the flavor or the rush of the spicy?
