Hot stuff

  • Comment

Readers' offers are a mixed feast, but this one seems almost irresistible.

The AJ has been contacted by the 'Lord of Harpole', one of the north-east's most irrepressible self-publicists and the owner of Rupali's Indian restaurant on the legendary Bigg Market in Newcastle.

The self-styled 'first Bangladeshi Lord of the Manor' has offered our readership the chance to sample the 'hottest curry in the world'. The standard offer for all-comers entails receiving the chilli-strewn dish free, but only if it is eaten in its entirety.

However, if you present a copy of the AJ upon arrival this requirement will be suspended, and the meal will be gratis whether you eat it all or not.

To my knowledge, at least one member of the AJ editorial team has indeed sampled this extraordinary curry and he tells me (paraphrased to avoid expletives) it is 'really rather fiery'.
