Portions only a Monster could Finish

Those who are self-proclaimed bottomless pits had still better think twice about embarking on solo attempts to devour entire dishes from Monster Curry’s Monster range ($24). With giant heaps of rice and ingredients drowned in rich Japanese curry, these are a challenge for even a ravenous pair to finish. A good pick If you’re going for quality and quantity.

Being a chili-lover, I made the smart-alecky mistake of thinking that the third level of spiciness, “Extra Hot”, would be no kick for me. I was so wrong. Unless you’re on a bet, I don’t suggest even trying anything higher than level three, as you might not be able to enjoy the taste of your food properly. Two should be safe enough if you don’t want to keep fanning your tongue between bites!

Monstrous portions of rice

I always get one of their monster curry combos, but my personal favourite is their Sea Monster Curry ($24) with flame level 2. Don’t expect to see Loch Ness all chopped up; they’ll serve you fish, scallops and shrimps instead. Having been there famished and close to starvation, I can safely say that the portion served could possibly put one out of malnutrition.

However, I'm wondering if their portions were made for a competitive eater's training because there’s no other reason why a dish would require this much rice. In fact, there’s so much rice that you don’t really get enough curry or fried stuff to coat each bite evenly. But they’re forgiven because of their crispy tempura and flavourful curry.

Do yourself a favour and go when you’re starving, because chances are you’re going to struggle to finish the entire plate. Or you could always share it amongst three, although that may leave you feeling a little peckish.

Not so Monster portions

I was not prepared for the huge portions at monster curry the first time I visited. This is the first time a menu understates the size of the actual dish. Although they don’t specify it anywhere, the portions could actually feed two people. The last time I visited the portions got smaller though, it became more manageable for one person, although the price did not decrease.

Their curry is not the best, Monster Curry localizes their curry by allowing you to choose the level of spiciness of the curry. They do this by drawing little heart shapes of chilli sauce into your curry, which you have to mix yourself. This also gives you the option of chickening out after your order comes.

portions fit for a sumo-wrestler

I love Japanese curry. And it’s not easy to find good Japanese curry in Singapore - either they’re too watered down, too sweet, or taste more like Indian or Thai curry. I’ve heard good things about Monster Curry, which prides themselves on their gourmet “demi-glace” curry gravy with five different levels of spiciness.

My boyfriend and I visited the Monster Curry outlet at Nex and ordered their Combo Curry ($25++) at “1 Flame”. The serving size was huge, with very generous portions of Japanese rice and all that fried goodness! Their special hot sauce tasted a bit like chicken rice chili, but really added an extra kick to their curry gravy. The curry gravy was rich, smooth and flavourful, and the cheese-curry combination was pretty good. There was however hardly enough curry for the amount of rice we were served, and the dry, bland pork shabu-shabu paled in comparison with the other deep-fried toppings.

Decent food, value-for-money and some darn good curry! Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a Japanese curry fix on a budget, but I suggest going with friends or you may have problems stomaching their portions.
