Have I completely lost it? Me, who do not have a high tolerance for spicy food, ordered that for dinner? I was drawn to it. Like the rats in The Pied Piper of Hamlin. Ok maybe I’m not that scrawny. Heheh.
That is Kuay Teow Kuah. “Flat noodles in gravy”. I don’t remember this dish as having a fried egg. As far as i know it has a poached egg which is cooked together with the noodles and gravy. Or it might be they added the fried egg because they had messed up my order earlier. And I don’t remember this being soooo spicy. Yes it has a certain oomph to it. But this is like getting a flying kick from the Karate Kid! I eat pretty fast. But I tried to slow down for this one.
Half a bowl and a packet of tissues later (for wiping tears from my eyes, mucus from my nose and sweat from my brow), I gave up. And I felt pretty bad for wasting food. But I better stop before the insides of my tummy exploded into smithereens.
Of course I tried to see the good side of everything. Hey! This cleared my sinuses! I can breathe easy now. Hooray!
