Cooling Down After A Spicy Meal

nigerian stew

If you’re like me, at one point or another you have over-estimated your spice tolerance and set your mouth on fire. My most traumatic experience has to be the catfish stew I had at my wife’s folks home (might explain why I sweat a little bit when I hear catfish). I probably drank two of water to no avail. My wife might have said something about me not being a real man but I was too busy looking for bread to quench the fire in my mouth.

Apparently reaching for a cold water might not be the best solution. Next time you’re in this situation, try one of the solutions listed below.



Have you been traumatized by spicy Nigerian food? Do you have a better remedy?!
