Best Incendiary Mouthful (2008)

BRICK LANE CURRY HOUSE

Newcomer BRICK LANE CURRY HOUSE seeks to present English-style Indian food to an American audience, and in this it enjoys a certain amount of success. Where it really roars, however, is in delivering the hottest dish in the city, a little something called phaal. The restaurant dares you to finish it, and if you do, you get a free beer. A welcome gimmick for the chile-obsessed.
