Well, a couple weeks ago we saw an episode where he eats the "hottest curry in the country" at a restaurant in NYC called Brick Lane Curry House. Immediately, Ernesto said "I have to try that!" We just happen to be visiting NY for our friends' wedding so we made it happen.
Just to give you a little background about the "hottest curry in the country" take a look at the Man vs. Food video:
Neto ordered the Phall with lamb, and of course a Kingfisher beer to go with. We also ordered the saag paneer and butter chicken. (My college roomate Michelle was with us that night. In fact we were able to hang out the whole day and catch up. It was great seeing her.) The dishes aren't huge, but there is a lot of sauce in it, and the challenge is to eat all of it! He digs in straight away and doesn't really seem phased. I mean, he does eat hot food everyday.
He recieved the certificate of completion, and his prize, a free beer!
ps. After dinner he felt a little dizzy when we were walking around the city. Also the effects of that hot as hell curry did not end that night.....as you can imagine.
