Most people who have known me for a while would know that I’m always on the lookout for chilli food – and I’m always up for a challenge in terms of testing out what type of heights I can reach in terms of heat – so when Ms. Buddha and Mama Buddha tasked me with finding dinner, I started scouting for some chilli food. I read from some blogs that Colombia 8 had some curry rice that was so chilli that people were not able to finish – so off we went!
They actually have a few stores and when we arrived at the original store, we were informed sadly that the place was booked out for the night – but the owner offered me the card to go to the other store – luckily that was about 10mins drive away so wasn’t much of an issue.
When we arrived we were given some menus to look at but also informed by the chef that their “chilliest” product was unavailable to people who haven’t had their curries before – so we went the one below that.
When the curry came, Ms. Buddha and I were delighted because it looked like it was swamped with spices – but this was met with sore disappointment when there were next to no heat coming from the spices. Don’t get me wrong the curry and the rice it self was still delicious – but not chilli like people have said.
Shortly after finishing the first curry, Ms. Buddha and I wanted to see whether we can now try their hottest invention – so we asked and the chef were happy to oblige. We waited with anticipation and when it arrived, it looked more promising.
I have to say, Ms. Buddha and I have grown to take a lot of heat – so when the second curry came – we were both slightly disappointed since that although there were more spice – the curry didn’t live up to its reputation as “so hot it’s edible” – once again, the pairing of the flavours were excellent – but in terms of heat, it certainly weren’t – though delicious – Ms. Buddha could sense my disappointment – and Mama Buddha noticed the same.
