Nick Pryor vs “Danger Pepper” At Vinpearl Island

My brother decided to eat a hot pepper while he was on Vinpearl Island near Nha Trang, Vietnam. He did not know that the time, but they call it “The Danger Pepper.” Granted, he asked Hang about how hot it was, comparing it to the hot sauce on the table. Apparently the answer he received wasn’t quite correct after all.

The pepper’s name translates to “The danger pepper”, and it was apparently much hotter than the hot sauce. It’s just a tiny little pepper they normally place in their soup to increase the spiciness of the meal. Normally, just a single pepper can increase the spice for the soup, but they don’t normally just bite half of it (eating, of course, the seeds as well).

I’m sure this experience won’t deter him from trying new foods in the future of this trip, but I imagine he’ll likely want more than a single opinion about the food before taking the dive next time. :)

    My husband got ahold of one in his food when we ate at a Thai restaurant in Chicago once. He thought he was going to die. And his brother had warned him not to eat any of these. Milk or sour cream is a good cooling drink for future knowledge

    Get a phone that supports YouTube prompting from the browser then. :)

    Yeah, totally recovered after a short time. It's an ongoing joke here around meals though. That part will take a little longer to recover from.
