The Phaal Challenge at Brick Lane Curry House on Man v Food [video]
The latest episode of Man v Food, set in New York City, had Adam Richman visit Katz's Delicatessen for a pastrami and corned beef sandwich, Silvia's for fried chicken and ribs, and Brick Lane Curry House to take on the Phaal Challenge, the supposed spiciest curry in the world. The restaurant's website describes it as "an excruciatingly hot curry, more pain and sweat than flavor."
People who finish the Phaal Curry get their picture on the Brick Lane Curry House's P'hall of Fame, a free beer, and a certificate with their name on it. Insanity: when the phaal curry is prepared, the chef wears a gas mask.
