For adventurous food lovers, the thrill of trying the spiciest dishes from around the globe is an irresistible challenge. Here are five of the hottest dishes in the world that are sure to set your taste buds on fire. From fiery curries to tongue-tingling stir-fries, these dishes are not for the faint of heart.

  1. Phaal Curry (India) Originating in Indian restaurants in the UK, Phaal Curry is known as one of the hottest curries in the world. This scorching dish is made with a blend of bhut jolokia (ghost peppers), habanero, and scotch bonnet peppers, along with a mix of spices. The intense heat of Phaal Curry is not for the inexperienced, and many restaurants require patrons to sign a waiver before ordering.
  2. Sichuan Hot Pot (China) Sichuan cuisine is famous for its bold, spicy flavors, and the Sichuan Hot Pot is no exception. This fiery dish features a bubbling broth filled with Sichuan peppercorns, chili oil, and dried chili peppers. Diners cook various meats, vegetables, and noodles in the spicy broth, creating a customizable and mouth-numbing experience.
  3. Jerk Chicken (Jamaica) Jamaican Jerk Chicken is a fiery Caribbean dish that's marinated in a blend of scotch bonnet peppers, allspice, thyme, and other aromatic spices. The chicken is then grilled or smoked to perfection, resulting in a spicy, smoky flavor that's sure to awaken your senses. The heat level of Jerk Chicken can vary, but authentic recipes pack a serious spicy punch.
  4. Neua Pad Prik (Thailand) Thai cuisine is known for its balance of sweet, sour, and spicy flavors, and Neua Pad Prik is a prime example of the latter. This stir-fried dish features tender strips of beef cooked with copious amounts of Thai bird's eye chilies, garlic, and basil leaves. The intense heat of the chilies is tempered by the savory flavors of the beef and garlic, creating a fiery yet addictive dish.
  5. Suicide Chicken Wings (USA) While not a traditional dish, Suicide Chicken Wings have become a popular challenge in bars and restaurants across the United States. These wings are coated in a sauce made from some of the hottest peppers in the world, including ghost peppers, Trinidad scorpion peppers, and Carolina Reaper peppers. Brave eaters who manage to finish a plate of Suicide Chicken Wings are often rewarded with a place on the restaurant's "Wall of Flame."
