American here, I'd rather eat Brazilian food than central American, Colombian, Cuban, Dominican, Ecuadorean, or Venezuelan. Or flyover food but that goes without saying

If I had to pick one other besides Mexico, Brazil would be on the short list but I'd probably end up going with Guyanese. Peru is a meme and people will get over it, I first tasted it in 1998 and I was over it fairly quickly

Peruvians decided in the last decade or so that they're foodies, and since foreigners are impressed by raw fish and are blown away by the discovery that Latin Americans can have ethnicity other than indigenous and Spanish, the buzzfeed crowd is taken in by their collective delusion.

It also helps that the neighbors' cuisine literally consists of greasy rice and bananas, making the Peruvians kind of like Chicagoans

http://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/why-szechuan-peppers-make-your-lips-go-numb-5668606/?no-ist

Gross simplification:
The chemical that makes most peppers spicy is capsaicin, the chemical that is present in sichuan peppers is hydroxy-alpha-sanshool. Capsaicin activates the heat receptors in your mouth, which is why it feels like your mouth is burning, because from your nervous system's perspective it is. Hydroxy-alpha-sanshool interacts with a separate set of receptors, a series which are associated with touch, which is why you feel kinda numb.

Fellow Atlantafag here, you're pretty much shit out of luck for finding decent Sichuan food in this fucking city.

Jia is alright, but it's seriously not spicy enough. There's a few places on Buford that are okay, but half of them are owned by Koreans and are still lacking in spice compared to the real thing.

there are no heat receptors in your mouth. You can't taste "heat" its the sensation of pain being chemically activated
