Currry Shokudo launches new 48-Hour Tonkatsu Curry Rice for PJ's most captivating Japanese curry
May 6, 2023
Searching for the most distinctive Japanese curry in the Klang Valley?
After eight years, Taman Paramount's Shokudo Japanese Curry Rice has been reborn as Currry Shokudo, freshly refurbished with revamped recipes.
Currry Shokudo's newest smash-hit creation is its 48-Hour Miso-Aged Tonkatsu Curry Rice, which had 100 plates sold on the first day of its relaunch!
What makes Currry Shokudo's Japanese curry unmistakably unique?
The restaurant pays tribute to classic curry traditions while infusing its own tantalising twists, carefully calibrated after years of refinement.
The recipe comes from the family of a Japanese chef from Kanagawa prefecture, perfected over four decades and passed on to his former protege, Chef Kuan, one of Currry Shokudo's Malaysian founders. Chef Kuan has loved the delicate flavours of Japanese curries ever since he first tasted them in the 1990s.
Customers can choose between two types of curries - the original Japanese curry or the new black curry.
The original is soothingly smooth, subtly sweet and spicy, satisfying in its simplicity, richly aromatic with the fragrance of vegetables, fruits and gentle spices.
The black curry is intensified with Indian spices, harnessing garam masala, cayenne pepper and high-quality bamboo charcoal powder. The garam masala elevates the elegant umami, the cayenne pepper brings a moderate spiciness, the bamboo charcoal conveys a deep, dark colour.
Hambagu buffs, bookmark Currry Shokudo for its Gyu Hambagu Spicy Black Curry Rice (RM24.90).
Scrumptious non-curry treats are also available.
Also addictive: The Korokke Platter (RM15.90), a triumphant trio of handmade Japanese potato croquettes, sumptuously soft inside and surprisingly laced with three different fillings - bacon morsels, minced chicken with original curry, and minced beef with spicy black curry. It's a brilliant way to infuse Currry Shokudo's curries into a sensational snack.
Currry Shokudo's new facade is strikingly trendy, harbouring a casual canteen-style setting inside - the ideal location for comforting everyday meals, crafted with impeccable ingredients.
A sign outside the bright yellow entrance proclaims this to be 'the best Japanese curry in town' - it's certainly worth exploring for curry with character and charm.
