For lunch on a recent Monday, I designed my own noodle stir-fry at Noodlebox: thick egg noodles, chicken, broccoli, snow peas, egg, fish cake and tofu (yes, they had tofu this time!), in black bean and chilli sauce.
We had afternoon tea that day to celebrate workmate P’s birthday. He brought in this iced pecan and custard danish for everyone to share.
With Jac still away, I went to IGA supermarket on Royal Street to buy groceries on my way home, so I’d have something to cook for dinner. The curry bar smelled so amazing I couldn’t resist. I got myself a AU$9.90 takeaway combination – two meat curries, chicken biryani and two vegetable dishes. This photo shows the curries still in the takeaway container.
Regular readers will know I prefer to eat takeaway meals on a proper non-disposable plate. Here was round one. Across the top, left to right: lamb korma, butter chicken, spicy potatoes, chicken biryani rice. In the bottom right corner, my favourite of the vegetable dishes on offer at the curry bar, eggplant curry. Charry-flavoured soft eggplant, real cashews in the korma and plump, juicy sweet raisins in the biryani… so good. I got through about half of the food. I just love curry leftovers, don’t you?
If you’re ever in East Perth around lunch time or dinner time, and you like Indian curries, definitely give the IGA curry bar a go. There are usually 4 or 5 meat curry dishes to choose from, 4 or 5 vegetarian curry dishes, and chicken biryani or plain basmati rice. They do also sell whole BBQ chooks too. :) They restock the bain marie in time for dinner, so you don’t have to worry that there won’t be anything left from lunch time.
