Things are getting a lil' hot and spicy right now.

It's time to add a little sass, spice, sizzle and sear to your next meal out. Dump the safe options, grab yourself a big pint of water or milk and a packet of Rennies because these dishes are a force to be reckoned with.

Your tongue is going to be on FIRE.

Welcome to the Lovin Dublin Curry Club. 

We went on the hunt for Dublin's spiciest curries testing everything from Scoville units, pungency and after-taste to see which dishes would come out on top. This week we took on the spiciest Thai curries in Dublin.

Here are our top picks

1. Jungle Curry - Baan Thai

Baan Thai is known for using some of the hottest of chilies in their dishes and their lax attitude to spice.

It's a cute 'ol spot, very much your traditional Thai restaurant up a few flights of stairs in an unsuspecting building. The staff are super friendly and it's a very cool and calm atmosphere indoors.

Their Jungle Curry is super spicy and bloody delicious, as well as wickedly intense. Use this information wisely.

It will leave you speechless.

Like, literally... 'cause you're going to need to gulp a few pints of water before your mouth cools down.

2.. Hot Green Curry - Neon

Neon is one of my favourite places in Dublin to grab a quick and simple curry.

It's a stress-free venue, ideal for casual dining and the curries are class.

Their Hot Green Curry is made with coconut milk, Green beans, Chilli, Sweet Basil Leaves and Green Chilli Paste - you'll be thankful to get that free 99 when your meal is done.


3. Chu Chee Curry Camile Thai

The Chu Chee Curry from Camile Thai is a hot and spicy curry with lime leaves, cucumber, fish sauce and basil.

This is sure to give you the sweats.

If you're ever hankering for a takeaway but you don't want to feel guilty after, Camile Thai is a great option. They have loads of delicious and healthy options available and the portions are huge, so you'll even have some yummy leftovers to bring for lunch the next day.


5. Gaeng khiao wan gai - The Chili Club

The Chili Club at 1 Anne’s Lane is a hidden gem for lovers of spice. Their Gaeng Khiao Wan Gai is a fan favourite. It’s an incredibly hot and spicy green curry with sliced chicken breast, bamboo shoots basil and green beans.

Feelin' hot hot hot!

Could you handle it?

6. Gang Keaw Wan, Thai Spice

Gang Keaw Wan is served with meat or tofu with courgettes, sweet peppers and peas cooked in a green curry, with coconut milk.

Thai Spice is dedicated to cooking exactly what you want, exactly to your tastes, meaning they’re happy to throw on as much spice as you like, just remember to say when!

7. Kaeng Pa Jungle Curry - Koh

Koh is hidden away in the unsuspecting Italian Quarter over the Northside quays, and it is definitely worth popping into.

Their Kaeng Pa Jungle Curry is made with either chicken or beef along with long beans, aubergines, chillies, lime leaves, sweet basil and butternut squash. The clear curry is sure to blow your socks off and leaving to panting after a few forkfuls.

So what are you waiting for? It's time to get your spice on!
