Go! Go! Curry!

Inspired by the “Cook a pot of curry” day, I decided to have curry for dinner last Sunday. But I had a craving for Jap curry, which is not so in line with the theme I suppose, but it is still curry, no? Heh. I thought hard about places with good Jap curry in Singapore, but my mind drew a blank. Scoured the net for good recommendations, but that did not yield substantial results.

My sporadic love for Jap curry started after a long tiring day at Tokyo Disneysea about 2 years back, when Ter and I were on our way back to our hotel for the night. Those who have been to Disneysea, or Disneyland will know that running around the place to catch the best rides is like some sort of physically demanding amazing race. Coupled with the exorbitantly priced F&B inside, it is suffice to say that we were both damn hungry and spent at the end of the excursion. So at a particular JR station where we changed trains, we popped into one of those eat-by-the-counter eatery, where you purchase food coupons via a vending machine, in exchange for the food. So as you might have already guessed, it was a curry shop, and when the order came, we scarfed down the curry rice like we had been starved for a long time. And that is when I started to appreciate Jap curry. Something about the mix of sweet, spicy and savory that drew me in. Especially love the red pickled veg that comes with it (think it’s called fukujinzuke)! Funnily enough, the other yummy Jap curries I’ve had was in LA, at Hurry Curry, Sawtelle. So I find it odd that I can’t find any good recommended Jap curry in SG.

One name stood out though, from all the scouring on the web, and it was Go! Go! Curry! Located at the ION Orchard food basement, I vaguely remember seeing it, when its name appeared in the searches. All the reviews seemed favourable, so headed there for a nice Jap curry dinner. We settled for the Grand Slam because we could nt decide which katsu to get, and the grand slam had a bit of everything. We even added shrimp because there was only 1 miserly shrimp in the Grand Slam. When our order came, we sized up the situation pretty quickly (this would be called appreciation of situation in my line of work) and opined that we needed more curry, so we topped up $3 for additional curry.

Go! Go! Curry!

Between the chicken katsu and the pork katsu, I preferred the chicken; thought that the pork was a bit tough, but maybe I have just been spoilt by Tonkichi or Tetsu, lol. Other than that, the curry was creamy and tasty! Not too spicy, and was a seamless blend of sweet and savoury. My only gripe was that there wasn’t any of the red pickled vege that I so love. Alas! I would have loved to finish the entire container of it, like what we did in Tokyo. Then again, who does that right? :p Go! Go! Hurry! is ideal for a satisfying Jap curry meal that is also value for money. Worth a try if you are into Jap curry. Oh, and they also have various serving sizes (with inventive names) for the rice, ranging from economy class to first class. So for those folks who are carbo loading, or love to eat rice, it’s first class for the win; else economy class should do the trick! So go, go, go to Go! Go! Curry!
