Every single time my sister visits Orlando from college, she wants one thing: Thai Singha in Waterford Lakes. I don’t blame her—it’s pretty delicious. I always order the same thing: curry or pad thai. You really can’t go wrong with either.
We started out with our usual favorite: chicken summer rolls. I haven’t found a place with better peanut sauce. I do wish they offered a shrimp version, though.
Kathryn ordered her favorite: tofu pad thai.
I decided to veer off my usual path and tried something new: chicken and shrimp garlic.
I ordered the dish at medium spiciness, but I swear it came out way hotter. Within seconds of my first bite, my face got flushed, I started sweating and I could feel my tongue trying to escape. I felt like I scorched the entire inside of my mouth.
My stomach and taste buds were having an internal struggle. The food was delicious, but it kind of hurt to keep eating. The chicken was cooked really well and was extremely tender. The pieces of shrimp were a decent size, and I really liked the light sauce. You can really taste the garlic in the dish, which I loved. The flavors were definitely there. However, my burning mouth got to a point where each bite of my dish was followed by a pad thai chaser. I’m not sure how much my sister appreciated that.
My stomach ended up winning the battle, and I cleaned my plate…and drank all my water. I have a tendency to eat this way when I encounter spicy foods. Sometimes they hurt so good (sorry for the Mellencamp reference).
What’s the spiciest thing you’ve ever eaten?
