I've read the discussion here about Difference between “spicy” and “hot”.
I've also read this one: How to say that food is hot (temperature) without the listener thinking that I mean “spicy”?.
But I did not find any word or phrase that describes the reaction someone has when eating a too spicy-hot food. You know, they tend to sweat, catch their breath, and even sometimes shed tears; due to the spiciness of the food.
So my questions:
Is that it?
- What do you say to describe the reaction someone has when being excitedly "suffered" by a very spicy-hot food? In Indonesian, we would call it kepedasan.
- What do you say when you get that thing [the answer to question 1] with you, other than the list I enclose below:
- Oh, spicy!
- My God, it's spicy-hot!
