Insanely hot, but flavorful

For all the chili-head 'Hounds, what's the hottest dish you've found in the area? While pure heat is nice, please differentiate between those dishes that are also flavorful (if you can take the heat) and those that are just "heat masochist" exercises with no discernable flavor beyond "hot".

My initial votes - Szechuan Chili chicken at China Star (about equal parts breaded chicken cubes and red chilis)
Red Fish Curry at Bombay Peacock in Columbia (special ordered by a friend for a gathering of work associates)
