Hahaha, of course I don’t know if these guys (the band) are called that in Chinese
I do know that chillies are called “hot peppers” là jiāo (辣椒), chilli sauce that we’re familiar with is actually “sweet chilli sauce” or tián jiàng (甜酱) while peppers / capsicum are called “sweet peppers” or tián jiāo (甜椒).
If you ask me, I don’t think I really like spicy Chinese food especially if it’s cooked with Sichuan peppers because I don’t like the numb feeling my taste and throat feels after a meal.
Then again, people tell that me I’ve not been eating authentic spicy Hunan and Sichuan foods, which are of course tastier in their own cities.
Since I’ve been craving for spicy food, the Hubs mentioned that he’s taking me to a popular Sichuan restaurant in town, which serves a number of dishes that he’d think I’d like.
Mmm…I’m looking forward to that!
