That bit of a kick


Senior Member
You need that bit of a kick. It makes fried rice really good.

That's what I read when I was watching youtube video. The guy who said the sentences above is from England. Does the word "kick" mean "strong flavor"or "spicy flavor" in UK or other countries?

    In culinary terms it means what you think yes. It can mean strong, maybe sharp or acidic, but most usually it means something spicy/fiery; something distinctive that will enhance the flavour of the dish.

    Having worked with cooking shows for far too many years; yes, it should certainly refer to an ingredient in a meal, most likely one that is spicy/hot. At least in the US.
