Chicken Katsu Curry Rice -Tokyo Belly
as promised (tho a little late), here’s my review on Tokyo Belly. We were strolling on Grand Indonesia that fine Saturday morning, to catch this special discount from this particular shop, anyhow we failed. And so next thing to do is to find a comfort food. This place, previously named Mr. Curry is now called Tokyo Belly. The menu is still similar, what’s with the curry and the omurice and all. Well, we decided to give it a shot.
I’m in for curry rice, they have this several levels of spiciness (an odd ones I might add - as I recall they put very spicy after mild/ medium spicy, ummm, where’s the just spicy one go?), so this one was very spicy (and indeed it is VERY spicy). But the taste was good, way better than the curry from Mr. Curry. The curry was rich in flavor and very delicious, matched well with the hot steamed rice and the chicken katsu.
The waitresses are quick to respond (again unlike Mr. Curry) and the sake drinks are awesome. But when i went back there last Saturday (at around 8.15 PM), we were told to put our name on the waiting list (an odd thing for there were 30% empty tables on the restaurant.) The waitress was saying something like they were waiting for the all the food to be served first before letting new tables occupied and something about the kitchen, I didn’t quite understand to be exact. So off we went to find another place with 30% empty tables and no waiting list. But, yeah, I’ll come back some other time Tokyo Belly!
