These are 20 of the spiciest dishes we could find in Montreal.\nTo compile this list, we made use of customer reviews as well as personal experience.\nThis list represents a variety of cuisines and a diversity of locations on Montreal Island.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nSome lists are easy; find the best soft-serve ice cream spots in Montreal? How delightful and refreshing. Don't mind if we do. Please wait here while we treat ourselves to a nice cool down on this hot August day.\nAnd then there are lists like finding the hottest Montreal dishes. And by hot we don't mean trendiest, we mean THE spiciest.\nThe level of spice anyone can withstand is completely arbitrary. But as a lover of all things ranking on the Scoville scale, if there's somewhere on your list that is a must-try for a Montrealer, let us know!\nThese 20 spiciest dishes we found are dishes that will make your waiter raise an eyebrow when you order and ask, "Are you sure?" and shake his head as he walks away. Dishes where your nose hairs twitch before they're even out of the kitchen with the plate, dishes that will make your mouth numb, your eyes bleed, and your organs ask what they ever did to deserve this treatment.\nThese are dishes that will make you wonder if your taste buds have packed their belongings, said a big 'Fuck you' and moved to a small town in England never to be seen again.\nRubs American BBQ\nWHERE: 17 Rue Prince-Arthur\nWHAT: Ghost Pepper Bloody Caesar\nThe restaurant name pretty much sums up this restaurant's fares. Though the staff may be friendly, they really want to see a grown man/woman cry. The caesar is tasty until you feel it ripping its way down your esophagus.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Ghost Peppers\nView this post on Instagram In honour of International Bacon Day we present the bacon stir stick! Where else in montreal can you eat your stir stick and still be okay? #montreal #drink #bacon #mltmoments #laval A post shared by Rubsamericanbbq (@rubsamericanbbq) on Sep 3, 2016 at 10:31pm PDT\nWebsite\nAunt Dai\nWHERE: 1448 Rue St-Mathieur\nWHAT: Mapo Tofu\nAunt Dai prides itself on serving traditional NorthEastern cuisine. The menu doesn't follow the normal format, instead, every entry is followed by the owner's personal take on each dish.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Chili Oil and Sichuan Peppercorn\nAunt Dai\nWebsite\nGanges\nWHERE: 6079 Rue Sherbrooke O.\nWHAT: Beef Vindaloo\nThis Indian restaurant is about as unassuming as it gets. The waiter, trying to save me from myself, didn't want to serve me a regular vindaloo. I probably should have listened.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Red chili...and something probably cultivated from Satan's garden.\nView this post on Instagram Have been craving so much for Indian food and finally!!! #Indianfood #icecream A post shared by @ hyunk_92 on Oct 4, 2018 at 7:05pm PDT\nCheck out more\nRestaurant Jolee\nWHERE: 5495 Avenue Victoria\nWHAT: Chili chicken\nWhat's a spicy list without a South Indian and Sri Lankan restaurant.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Chili sauce\nBRAVE SOUL REVIEW: "If you enjoy spicy food, you'll be in heaven." (TripAdvisor)\nRestaurant Jolee\nWebsite\nSatay Brothers\nWHERE: Visit them at 3721 Notre-Dame West or their summer-only Kiosk at the Atwater Market: 138 Atwater Avenue\nWHAT: Homemade spicy sambal\nYou can order pretty much anything at this Singaporean restaurant and spice it up to your heart's content with their homemade chili sauce. But we still recommend the beef rendang or their famous laksa soup.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: A variety of chili peppers\nBRAVE SOUL REVIEW: "They asked me if I wanted it spicy and I said yes. Will not do that again. :-)" (Resto Montreal)\nView this post on Instagram The elixir 🦐🌶🥥 A post shared by Satay Brothers (@sataybrothers) on Feb 13, 2019 at 5:45am PST\nFind out more\nCaribbean Curry House\nWHERE: 6892 Avenue Victoria\nWHAT: Jerk Chicken\nA Montreal staple for Caribbean cuisine, they're known for their rotis but if you want to play with fire ask for the jerk chicken, spicy.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Scotch bonnet peppers\nBRAVE SOUL REVIEW: "Make the pilgrimage and be rewarded with flavors and spice that will make you cry Rasta!" (Yelp)\nView this post on Instagram Couldn’t decide between Roti and the Jerk Chicken.... so had both.... amazing... definitely a must eat when your in Montreal!!!!

But it's the mirch masala you need to head for if you're brave — dipped in their spiced green chutney if you're feeling crazy.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Mangalore chili peppers\nBRAVE SOUL REVIEW: "We asked for medium spice on the chili chicken and proceeded to lose feeling in our lips and tear up a bit" (Yelp)\nView this post on Instagram DOSAA, Thanjai ne banaya 😂 #foodie #iNir04eats A post shared by Nir Patel 👳🏽♂️ (@inirpatel) on Apr 10, 2015 at 7:00pm PDT\nWebsite\nRestaurant Thailand\nWHERE: 88 Avenue Bernard O.\nWHAT: Kaeng Phed Talay\nThis Thai restaurant is a bit on the pricier side, but worth every penny. The kitchen does play it safe in the heat factor but if your tastebuds have no fear, ask for it really spicy. Perhaps I was a bit too cocky and they just wanted to show me the error in my ways, but this burned.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Red Chili\nBRAVE SOUL REVIEW: "Why do they hate me so?" (said by me while trying to breathe sharply through my mouth)\nPosted by Restaurant Thaïlande on Friday, August 25, 2017\nSee the full menu\nMae Sri Comptoir Thai\nWHERE: 224 Rue Milton\nWHAT: Tum Pu Pla Ra (Papaya Issan)\nThis authentic noodle stand serves some of the best and most affordable Thai street food dishes.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Chili pepper\nBRAVE SOUL REVIEW: "If you value your palate and taste buds, get the regular one, if you laugh in the face of pain, get the Issan."

They just renovated the restaurant, so you can burn your lips off in their newly decorated dining room.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Garam masala (a mix of Indian spices)\nYardie-in-Miami\n*This hidden gem is known to locals and doesn't even have a website.\nChez Chili\nWHERE: 1050B Rue Clark\nWHAT: Steamed Spicy Fish and Lamb\nChez Chili can go either way. Some dishes, while seasoned perfectly, won't even rank a sip of water — while others like the spicy fish and lamb will make you inhale the rice bowl.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Mostly chili peppers\nBRAVE SOUL REVIEW: "Also, when they say spicy, they mean SPICY - not for the faint of heart!" (Yelp)\nSpicy fish and lamb.Posted by Chez Chili on Wednesday, October 17, 2018\nWebsite\nPamika Brasserie\nWHERE: 901 Rue Sherbrooke E.\nWHAT: Duck Salad\nIf you noticed, this Thai restaurant made it on the list twice. While duck salad sounds rather innocuous, this one has a burn that many people can't handle.\nBRAVE SOUL REVIEW: "Not recommended if you can't handle the spiciness."

If you're the former make sure to let the waiter know you're there to tough it out.\nBRAVE SOUL REVIEW: "If you like spicy, this is the place for you. If you're scared of spicy food, well this is also the place for you."

I'm now questioning their rating system altogether. But if you can make it out to Pierrefonds, this is the Indian restaurant to hit.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Red and green chilis\nView this post on Instagram When we open the doors to our restaurant, you’re not walking into a business, you’re walking into our home 🏠🙏🏼 #BombayChoupati A post shared by Restaurant Bombay Choupati (@bombaychoupati) on Sep 18, 2018 at 1:51pm PDT\nCheck out their Facebook page\nPamika Brasserie Thai\nWHERE: 901 Sherbrooke E.\nWHAT: Kra Prao with fried egg\nThis is one of the most popular Thai street foods and Pamika doesn't miss.

Click here to find the closest one to you.\nWHAT: Rim Reaper Chicken Wings\nThe Irish aren't known for their spices. But that didn't stop McKibbin's. You have to sign a waiver to enter the challenge of eating 12 of the wings. No milk. You get a shirt after. Are you a masochist? Then it's worth every excruciating moment.\nWHY IT'S SO HOT: Ghost Pepper\nBRAVE SOUL REVIEW: "My mouth was so numb from pain that I could not even tell I had fries in my mouth."
