The largest Japanese curry rice chain in the world makes its debut in the Philippines with the opening of its first outlet at Estancia, Capitol Commons.
I dined here with a friend who was in desperate need of comfort food. This has been bookmarked for the longest time and I had found the perfect moment to indulge. We sat down right away, and glanced at the menu.
The restaurant allows customisation of its curry rice, which ranges from the spiciness level, portion of rice and type of sauces used. I seldom see a store enabling the customer to choose the spiciness level of the curry and this is a refreshing change from the norm. The curry rice here is really delicious. I can’t even begin with the curry. I shouldn’t even talk about it, as it speaks for itself. I was slurping it like it was soup. With a little beef, a little rice… whoa. I think I forced myself to eat more than I could because it was that delicious. I have a feeling that I will be here more often, and trying several different things as long as that curry is smothering the dish.
Here’s what we ordered….
Beef Curry Omelet- (Php330.00 +10% service charge)
I went for the Beef Omelet curry and selected standard hot for my spiciness level. Thinking that this was only rated a level 1 on the scale of 5 for the spiciness level (and thinking that I might be judged for being a chicken), I was pleasantly surprised to find that standard hot had just the right kick for me.
Creamed Chicken Omelet Curry- (Php330.00 +10% service charge)
just add Php80.00 and you’ll get your choice of drink and a mini salad.
Ice Cream- (P100 +10% service charge)
The ice cream was just OK. It’s just good for cleaning off the curry taste from your palate.
The service standards were also quite good with the food arriving quickly after orders were placed. So yes, I would definitely recommend this place to those who like curry rice.
