I hated curry. I didn’t like the smell, the strong taste, nothing about it. I’d see it on a menu & would turn away. Fortunately, that all changed when I helped judge a vegetarian cook off last month.
So, when a friend asked me to join her for lunch at Curry House, instead of immediately suggesting something else, I was more than happy to try it out.
This was Japanese style curry. It’s not as strong as the Indian type. In fact, to me at least, it was a little on the sweet/savory side. I’ll go out on a limb here & say it reminded me a bit of mole sauce.
Curry House is located in a strip mall by the Sports Chalet. I didn’t think it would get much traffic. I was wrong! This place was filled to the brim around lunch time on Sunday. I guess it’s a hidden gem.
I loved my pork katsu curry. I liked how there was a pool of curry sauce off to the side of the dish so you controlled how much you wanted on your meal. The rice was an overly generous portion as well. The side salad is always random for me. It seems like it’s an after thought. This one was made with a little more care thankfully. I don’t know why I have such an aversion!
The Curry House offered many choices of dishes. Noodles, meats, vegetarian, and combos. They were all there & at a reasonable price too. The servers were all over the place taking care of their own & each others’ tables. Based on my experience, I’d say it’s a good place for a lunch break since the service was pretty quick too.
So if you’re on the fence about curry, this is a good place to start. It gives you a glimpse of a lesser known curry out there.
Lookin for more Asian restaurants?
