For some reason, I woke up today craving for some of those thick, flavorful Japanese curry. Weird but yea, it is what it is. So, I went online to look for potential eateries to eat lunch at and Shokudo was part of the list. It came highly rated too. So, it was decided – this was where I was heading to for lunch.
Tori Katsu Curry Rice, 17 ringgit
Yup, I got exactly what I wanted. I was craving for some Japanese Curry and this certainly satisfied my craving. Ooooo man, that thick, buttery gravy sure was flavorful. I liked it lots. I was content simply slurping it up on its own. The rice was soft and moist – definitely the right texture to go with the flavorful gravy and the chicken katsu was crunchy on the outside and meaty on the inside, with some pickled carrots on the side which was a tad sweet. As simple as it all looks, there was a pleasant mix of flavors and textures – a lil crunchyness, a lil sweetness, a lil spicy and a whole lot of flavors. Yum!
Kaarage Curry Ramen, 22 ringgit
If you fancy the noodle version of Japanese Curry, then you’d enjoy this dish as much as I did. You would also be able to taste the different versions of Japanese curry Shokudo has to offer. While both are curries, the taste of the rice gravy and the noodles gravy were distinctly different. I liked both but between the two gravies though, I prefer the former. Both are thick but where the rice gravy is buttery and creamy, the Ramen gravy was a lil soupy, which worked well considering noodles were involved. The ramen + chicken kaarage + the curry, it was a yummy combination. Not too filling, just the right amount and taste to keep you satisfied.
Anin Tofu, 5 ringgit + Green Tea, 2 ringgit
I wanted something refreshing for drinks and opted for Grern Tea. For 2 ringgit, you’d get a free flow of the drink, which I thought was a jolly good deal. I drank it to my hearts content.
I was already full after the rice + noodle + refills of green tea but for some reason I still wanted a dessert. Something small and light … which was exactly what the Anin Tofu was. It was basically an almond pudding. It was a nice dessert to have when you have little space left in your stomach as it barely fills you up. The taste/flavor of almost was evident in every mouth/spoonfull you take, a rather peculiar yet pleasing taste.
