I had my first taste of Japanese curry Tuesday last week. I bought a takeaway Japanese curry chicken from Sushi@Royal (Shop 2, 131 Royal St, East Perth). The thick curry sauce with pieces of carrot and potato was served on top of rice and sliced chicken katsu. A few sweet red pickles added a splash of red to the otherwise goldeny dish.
I really liked the curry sauce with the chicken katsu. I think I’ve been reluctant to try Japanese curry because a few friends and siblings have told me it’s a sweet curry, which put me off, but I didn’t think this was that sweet. It had the flavour of generic curry powder curry, which I actually really like.
I’ll definitely order this again. Next time though, I’ll try the curry with fish katsu.
