Brick Lane Curry House
New York, NY 10009
Village Voice's Description
Named after a curry-crammed London street, this newcomer presents English-style Balti cooking, plus other regional Indian specialties. It offers what might be the city's hottest dish--choose chicken, lamb, shrimp, or mixed vegetables. The thick brick-red sauce delivers an alarming and lingering burn. Distressingly, the heat lingers for hours. Though the menu brags, "We will require you to sign a disclaimer not holding us liable for any physical or emotional damage after eating this curry," it's a disappointing bluff. What they will do if you finish is give you a free bottle of beer and inscribe your name on a chalkboard over the bar.
Tips from foursquare
For a taste of the hot and savory, try the London-style Indian food from Brick Lane Curry House in the trendy East Village.
Amazing lunch buffet for $10 every day from 12-4.
If you have a strong constitution, try the Phaal – an excruciatingly hot curry. Otherwise, the Chicken Tikka Masala is a safe bet, paired with Sesame Naan.
Probably the best curry house in New York City...try the Lasanu Gobi - Cauliflower to die for and also the Chicken Tikka Masala and my Fav the Lamb Vindalooo. The Phaal is not for the fainthearted !
