Great post. YOu make it seem so easy to share your experiences. I wish I could do as well in sharing on my blog. I just got it started and sometimes feel stuck on what to share or if it is the right thing to share. what to do? [GD - The answer is not to spam my blog trolling for links...yours was deleted.]

Similar reactions happened to me. I have always been a fan of "hot" but wasabi blew me away. However, I currently eat wasabi peas with amount control. I have found that I can clear my sinuses with a few wasabi peas quite quickly and they do not interfere with meds that I take like other sinus products. Go figure, maybe the Japanese had it right from the start, good taste and medical remedy all in one. Stranger things have happened.

I tried some wasabi beans for the first time today. Let me tell you, they are so hot i thought that I may need to call the fire department. ( not really ) they are extremely hot, however after my first taste I immediately spit it out. I was holding it in a napkin & decided to try it again. I guess being in the napkin took off the outer spiciness... I love the taste after that...

The local Mexican/Chinese restaurant has a sign above the Wasabi. It says "Wasabi es no Guacamole. Es MUY CALIENTE!"

OH MAN!!!! I had a simular experience with the sushi from the cafeteria. I thought it didn't come with Wasabi... Oh but it did... It was stuck to the bottom of the first piece I ate. I thought my head was going to explode!!!! That was the last time I bought that shushi!!! To funny!!!!

Sorry to see so many fellow victims!! Like you I was in a restaurant, but in Washington. I also thought in the dim light that I was getting guacamole, which looked like the only thing that I didn't consider "bait." Now I LOVE spicy food, but was not even remotely prepared for what began happening. I know it is rude to reach across the table, or take other guests items. However, in view of the ongoing emergency, I unabashedly confiscated and consumed every beverage within reach in a vain attempt to quell the atomic detonation in my mouth. I will still eat wasabi, but only in small controlled doses. Anyone want to try some nice Japanese guacamole????

I've had the wasabi experience from the other side of the chopsticks - took my mom out for her first time eating sushi, and before I can stop her, she picks up the entire blob and pops it in her mouth. You described the aftermath much better than I could. Similar thing happened to my dad somewhere in SE Asia - he tells me there was rice, and all sorts of sauces, and he put big globs of all the sauces on the rice. Oh, and then the only non-alcohol beverage they had was ginger beer. With real ginger. He says that was the only time he's been tempted not to abstain from alcohol.

IIRC, the traditional counter for "wasabi overdose" is sliced cucumber. I know capescin is fat-soluble (thus all the yogurt sauces and drinks in Indian cuisine) but I recall wasabi has a different active ingredient.
