As you'd expect from the title, Indian favorite Brick Lane Curry House features a wide variety of curries such as tikka masala, vindaloo, korma and saag, in all ranges of spiciness. Successfully tackling the notoriously spicy Phaal curry (which requires that you verbally assume responsibility for any physical repercussions) will earn you a spot on the "Phaal of Fame."

"At Brick Lane, a spare and casual place, the food is powerfully spiced, distinctively flavored, extremely fresh."
"Specializing in phaal, a habanero curry that's popular along London's Brick Lane restaurant row, Curry House issues a how-hot-can-you-go challenge to every diner. The nine types of curry are ranked by burn level."
