We visited this month old restaurant yesterday. Passed by this eatery a few days ago, after lunch at Whip Up –Whip Up @ Pudu – A Delightful Experience , which is located about 5 minutes away and thought that Curee kindda stands out. It had that ‘hidden’ element to it and on top of that quite a number of eateries within this row are of the Middle Eastern variety, so if you do not look or drive long enough, it would be easy to just assume that the whole lane is filled with Middle Eastern restaurants, take a U-Turn and head back the way you came. I’m sure you have experienced the same thing in KL City Centre, Bukit Bintang, no? The difference here is that this specific area is rather peacefully quiet and most importantly – parking was easy, we simply parked by the roadside and made our way to the eatery
See, told ya. Parking was easy and get what I mean about this particular area being peacefully quiet? It was nice. Totally the kind of place I see myself ‘lepak’ at. Quiet and relaxing.
I loved the interior, what they did to the place, very nice. It kindda reminded me of 8Haus – 8haus @ Jalan Sin Chew Kee – Pork ribs da bomb! .While some parts of it are similar, Curee has a more modern take to it whereas 8Haus is more old school elegance. The eatery is well spaced out and occupies 2 floors. Very nice. Customer service was good – friendly and helpful. Food arrived rather quickly and it was yummy.
The food served here is Japanese, just not of the sushi variety 🙂 If you like chicken katsu and Japanese curry, you’d enjoy your time here then.
Lunch Set : Hokkaido style Tomato based Soup Curry with Chicken, 19.50 ringgit + Japanese Curry with Katsu Chicken, 16.50 ringgit
Besides the food being delicious, it was also affordably priced. I was there for lunch and all the Lunch Sets comes with drinks and fruits on the side + the main dishes ordered. The fruit of the day was watermelon – sweet and juicy, sure makes for a good starter. AS for drinks, it was Houjicha Tea. It had a similar effect to that of a Jasmine tea – fragrant and calming. The main dishes – one was soupy and the other was curry based, I had a liking toward the curry. It must the flavor and the thick-ish texture. Yum yum. The Katsu Chicken, I loved. Crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside, delicious. The combination of the crunchy meat and the flavorful Japanese curry – was da bomb. The Hokkaido styled soup was not as bad as I thought it would be. I for one do not really like tomato soup and so, I was kindda expecting the worst. While the tomato flavor was evident, it was not overwhelming – yay! It tasted rather nice actually. The dish came with lots of stuff – fried chicken + carrot + capsicum + brinjal/eggplant + lotus. It was different but enjoyable. The tomato soup was pleasant, the chicken was lightly fried prior to being dumped in the broth, which meant the outside of the chicken was still chewy and slightly harden, despite being in the soup.
Both dishes were good. I truly enjoyed my lunch here.
Would I head back here?
Yes, I would. Food was good, I like how Curee looks and its ambiance, parking wasnt a hassle at all – so yes, why not.
