Doctors in China were left dumbfounded when they discovered a hole in a man’s stomach wall after he ate a notoriously spicy bowl of soup.

The 26-year-old unnamed male had consumed a mala soup, meaning ‘numbing hot’, a traditional Chinese dish.

After choosing the spiciest version of the dish from the menu, the man soon experienced a piercing pain in his stomach.

 

Deadly: After consuming a dish of mala soup, the 26-year-old male was admitted to hospital in Wuhan, China. Doctors concluded that the notoriously spicy soup had burned a hole through his stomach

The unlucky customer soon found himself vomiting blood before being rushed to a local hospital in Wuhan.

Despite having no medical history of ulcers or other gastrointestinal disorders, doctors concluded that the spicy soup had burned a hole through his stomach wall.

According to a report on Japanese site Rocket News 24, 15 per cent of incidents involving stomachs at the hospital are related to hot pot dishes.

    A number of years ago the ol’ lady and I were at PF Changs for dinner. I selected some beef deal that was supposedly the hottest thing they sold. I was asked twice by the waitress if that’s what I wanted before the manager came and asked me again.

    I had a little perspiration while eating, but it wasn’t the hottest stuff I ever ate.

    Considering the location of this restaurant, it was apparent some little proggies ordered the same stuff and had a shit fit!

    I have Sriracha on the side when I eat Pho Soup.
    No way I’d eat something like mala soup.

    Yummy! I enjoy spicy foods, but hot just for the sake of hot is not enjoyable.

    I love hot and spicy foods but this stuff sounds way damned hot for human consumption. And I heard a commercial yesterday for one of our local microbreweries that had a jalapeno ale that they advertised as cold and spicy, I think I’ll pass.
