Death curry?

Went out and tried some ridiculously hot curry with a few friends at Brick Lane the other day. Only I and one other guy ended up doing the Phaal challenge. This is that infamous restaurant with the gas masks. I usually have lots of vindaloo but this thing was pretty damn intense. I could barely finish it and I'm lucky I ordered paneer instead of lamb.

As Komugi is my witness, I'll never eat anything that hot again. This is "seeing lights in the corner of your eyes" level hot.

I got this little certificate for completing it.

Posing while in lots of pain

I do wear my Momoi T-shirts even in NYC for completely unrelated stuff :) If I had a bit less shame I probably would have brought my Habanero-tan figure to the restaurant table as a mascot too, but alas I keep my otaku tendencies on the down-low here limited to innocent looking apparel and Suara phone straps.

Also I should probably write my Fanime report soon too. It was pretty nice though, and I finally got peer-pressured into signing up for flickr so I already uploaded some items there. Also signed up for a twitter account but I haven't tried it out much yet (3 days too late now since I COULD have been updating at the convention). We'll see how things go...

Dude you're like Adam Richman! You could take over Man v. Food now ^^

Looking forward to your Fanime report. Good times. Good times.

I'm not that great with spicy foods...doubly so now that it'd probably kill me with heartburn. I'm getting too old...

I remember making curry out of naga chillies I grew for one of my mates, while entertaining at the time he now claims he can no longer eat anything remotely spicy, lol. =/
