Go! Go! Curry!
I have to post this. During my last Japan trip in 2007, we hunted high and low for Go!Go!Curry! in Shinjuku. We saw the signature yellow logo but for the oddest reason, could not find the right staircase or lift to go up. It was late and we were tired, so we abandoned our quest.
Little did I expect the yellow Go! Go! Gorilla to come to Singapore.
OK, this is what the "Economy Class" takeaway (S$12.50) looks like. The different "classes" (Healthy, Economy, Business, First) just refer to amount of rice, not size of katsu. The laminated paper box is sturdy enough to take the curry poured over the cutlet and rice.
Tastewise - we were expecting curry but were slightly taken by surprise as it's more like a thick beef stew. It's not bad, once you get over that expectation. Flavours are robust and hearty. Just not very curry-like. The meat is pretty good quality and the rice is short-grain Japanese rice. No shortcuts, I'm glad. But I still wonder what the Shinjuku experience would have been like.
GO! GO! CURRY!
