let’s try this again, the canadians are getting very mad about my pouring skills. cheers. ah, chicken and beer are like, maybe the most perfect combination of foods. – fried chicken and beer. – yes, fried chicken and beer, yes, i’m totally wrong, okay. – i think it’s more of a, after you go out for a night on the town and you know, you’re drinking some beer or whatever. – i can eat it anytime. – breakfast, lunch, and dinner. – yeah, fried chicken all day ya’ know. – [matt] i like your canada dry. – yeah, it’s pretty good, i’m just not drinking. – that’s cool, you gotta keep the powerlifting good. – you know, my body’s a temple. – okay, so you’ll just stuff it with fried chicken, yes. so we’re gonna do this in the order of hotness. we’re gonna start with the mild one and we’re just gonna ramp it up in spice until, what i guess in canada would be considered red hot spicy. and we’ll see how much, we’ll see who wins the battle of spice. you ready here? – no problem. – ’cause you said you have like this crazy spice tolerance. – oh yeah. (upbeat funk music) so i like to start with fried chicken ideally with no sauce. just ’cause like i think korean fried chicken has a very, very light batter, this is just my preferred way. it’s a nice way to gauge the quality and how well they fry their chicken. (chomping) – woo, hot! that’s good. juicy? – very juicy. – yeah, crispy, not too salty. – so we have this chicken, it’s good, it’s greasy, it’s fried, we need a little bit of a palate cleanser. this very lightly pickled korean daikon radish. mmmm. – [daniel] crunchy. we’re gonna go for the first level of sauciness which is their mild sweet and sour. that’s really saucy. – it’s like a nice hint of garlic to it. – mhm, you’re right. – very good palate, our family. – we like to eat, right? – oh yeah, oh yeah, we like to eat.

(upbeat electronica music) okay, so we’re gonna move on, we’re gonna move up the spice level. we’re gonna go the regular sweet and sour. – [ron] thank you. – it looks a little more red, it looks a little more dangerous, a little more aggressive. (upbeat electronica music) – very sweet. – still sweet, yeah. – yeah. – i’m not getting too much kick from it. – no, i mean, it has a little more like gochujang in this. right, but gochujang, while it is sorta spicy, is not that spicy. – [ron] right. – it’s more sweet i think. yeah, i mean i think that when people think of korean fried chicken, they think of this bright, red, sweet, savory, slightly spicy chicken and they do a nice job here. (upbeat electronica music) – [ron] yup, definitely rampin’ up now. – this is actually kinda spicy. – startin’ to get a little kick. – yeah, this is, i, you know, on my range i give this like a four or five out of 10. – in terms of spiciness? – yeah. – yeah, about, about five. – you, you look like. – i’m starting to sweat a bit, yeah. – you look a little damp there. – yeah, like the heat is just, you know, it’s creeping on my mouth, it’s like, it’s coated, it’s not even like creeping towards the back, it’s just all up in the front right now. – i feel like i have sauce on my face. do i have sauce on my face? yum. – [cameraman] yes. – how bad is it? i’m also like, starting to cry. we still have one level though. (suspenseful electronica music) are you ready? – let’s do this. – powerlifting! – little flex on! – okay. – there’s another level? of spice? – yeah. – come on. – [ron] this is the super spice. – that’s what they say, that they said this is the red hot. it doesn’t look as red, it doesn’t look as sauced, but maybe it just needs less to be spicier. – true. (chomping) – i don’t know, my mind is like playing tricks on me.
