Spiciest Dish in Columbus, OH

Our first ever city series and our quest to find the “spiciest dish” in Columbus, OH

There are many restaurants and many spicy dishes in Ohio, but which is the spiciest? We did the hard work for you and tried all of the hottest dishes Columbus, OH has to offer (skip to map).

One note on the list, we’re going based off of standard menu items, or commonly known off menu items like Extra Holy at Hot Chicken Takeover or levels 4-7 at Fukuryu for their Red Dragon Ramen. Anyone can walk in and say “light me up fam!” so we’re trying to go with the dishes that are easy to obtain without having to ask for special spiciness (other than the known spicy levels).
