Scharf is the German word for "Spicy" (hot) term that is used to describe a food or a dish with plenty of spices, particularly spicy chilis. I love spicy foods like most of the Filipinos and while living in Germany, I learned that many Germans do not like very much foods which are spicy (scharf). My husband's family does not even like onions and garlic in their food, much more dishes with chilis like some Filipino foods (Laing taste good with chilis, Adobo with garlic).
