I know there's the restaurant thread in the Living In The City, but that's just local eats.

Meanwhile, in Wisconsin...

Hey Joe, tell me if this makes you want to jump back into the wonderful world of eating meat or to completely dismiss it for the rest of your life...

... So this thing, it seems to be out already? Don't recall any ads, but then again, A) I don't watch TV much and B) maybe it's banned in NYC?

lol, i can't see the link, but if it's what i assume it is, the answer is no.  i don't think i've ever had a dream that involves eating, actually.

i've had dreams about cooking, though, usually task oriented. like trying to do the math on how much tabasco you'd need for five gallons of chili.

I just watched the NYC episode of Man vs. Food and he eats the Phaal curry at Brick Lane. Apparently it's the hottest curry in the country. Have any of you tried it? They have to wear gas masks when they make it so they don't choke.

me, Mike and Jon all ate and finished it about a year ago.  i'd say the idea that it's the "hottest in the country" is mainly hype.  it was hot, yes, but i've probably had hotter curry at Sripraphai. 

my next venture is a place in Williamsburg that supposedly has a hot sauce challenge.  for meat eaters, you need to eat 10 wings with the sauce and for vegans, it's 10 pieces of fried tofu in the sauce.  apparently the sauce is mega hot, but, as the resident fire-eater, i'm always skeptical of such claims.

Do you have the certificate from the phaal challenge on your wall?

Those fake wings we had when we were drunk the other weekend were really good. I would like to try some of those with some really hot sauce on them.

But doesn't it have a scoville level to back that claim?

haha, the certificate is on my desk.  i've yet to get a proper frame for it.


i mean, really, the curry was definitely hot, but the biggest challenge to eating all of it was that it was rather vinegary.  i mean, maybe there's a high scoville count, but i'm not sure how official those types of things are, especially when you consider the amount of places that serve spicy food.  how many of them might take the time to actually get their curry tested out?
