This is the last in a series of Japanese restaurants. I started earlier this week with Yoshida Sushi, Shin Sen Gumi, Cafe Hiro, and now The Curry House.
Look for Curry House sign.
Curry House, a chain from Japan, specializes in a simple meat on rice meal with curry. Americans and people all over the world need their protein, in this case meat, with a starch, rice. As a friend of mine said, that at its very essence, its just meat on rice and its nothing special.
But I do feel that Curry House is special. This condiment, which it basically is, is a unique blend of spices forming a thick dark lumpy sauce - called Curry. Curry, with its Indian origins, goes quite well either chicken (my favorite), beef, and pork. In my opinion, it is doesn't go well with seafood. But that's just my strange palate. In addition curry also balances out the plain blandness of rice. One drawback is the resulting curry breath that you'll have the rest of the day/evening. Your date will certainly smell it with each and every burp. Eww. . .
Today's special was the Chicken & Ginger Curry. With rice one side and chicken pieces in the ginger curry. You can taste the slight flavor of the ginger in the curry, which you can request at different level of spiciness. Personally, I like it medium hot. The ginger naturally gives chicken a sweeter taste, which contrasts the spiciness and savoriness of the curry. That's one thing you'll never claim - curry ever lacking flavor.
Anyways, I encourage you to try curry. Curry done right at Curry House. I have had comparable curry at Hurry Curry in West LA, but I will save that one for another review.
I like menus with pictures on them.
Their lunch specials have salad and a drink with a curry entree.
The Chicken & Ginger Curry. Not bad. But I wouldn't order it again.
Another curry entree. I am not sure what it is. But I think it was a seafood curry. Not my favorite. Though it does look like an egg.
