Fret not, no gorillas were hurt in the making of curry rice. Perhaps the boss was inspired by King Kong’s sub-cultural popularity in Japan. The dishes are mostly drenched in curry, with the menu consisting of pork, chicken and fish as the staples. We had a go at some of the dishes and the curry sauce was adequately thick and tasty – so licking good that we finished all of it. Basically, we feel that anything fried goes well with curry. But the highest contender on the menu is the Katsu Curry ($4.50). Fried pork cutlet and rice drenched in a generous pool of curry. It certainly gets the praise it deserves because we can’t complain about the portions and the flavor of the dish with a price tag under five bucks.
There’s also the Ebi Fry ($2.50), a plate of three fried prawns coated in breadcrumbs. It’s served with a drizzle of mayonnaise and cabbage.
There’s a lot more on the menu including
Pork Shabu Shabu Curry ($4.00), and
Fish Katsu Curry ($4.50) for us to plan a return visit. Plus, there’s an assortment of toppings including cheese.
