Mr. Curry - Japanese Curry and Sweet House

Last week, I had a fun enjoyable food testing panel experience together with the other food bloggers at a Japanese curry restaurant named Mr. Curry - one of Ismaya Group's restaurants.

When I arrived, it's so nice to see all their displayed food in front of the restaurant, definitely can make people to droll just by looking at them. The waitress greeted me and other customers in Japanese. As soon as I sat, I looked at the cute menu with the very wide of food's varieties. Then... the food tasting panel started :)

  1. I love looking at japanised western dishes...! The Japanese always somehow manage to make everything droolworthy :D)!!

  2. This food is so cute, especially the desserts. I'd feel so bad messing up the pretty sauce!

    I want to get a testing panel job!

  3. CG: Yeah... either it's fusion or authentic, Japanese food always makes me drool :)

    mica: Hahaha.. I believe there are a lot of opportunities in America for food testing panel ;)

  4. hai met kenal, saya link yah blognya, wah ada menu baru yah di mr curry, i love their manggo lassie hehe^^ klo dg smoothiesnya beda apa ya?

  5. anakjajan: thanks for linking :) Bedanya lassie ama smoothies? hmmm... not so sure, hehehe

  6. The restauant looks so neat and orderly. I would have loved to be on this tasting panel. I have been craving seafood lately and all of this looks good.

  7. Each and every dish looks incredible! Please don't make me pick just one. The Omurice sounds quite intriguing as does that glorious Mango parfait and I don't even like mango so much.

    Mr. Curry where are you??? Bring these dishes to the US!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Selba...

  8. monica: Ah.. I guess time to hit seafood restaurant or probably you can cook a seafood dish at home ;)

    louise: You don't like mango? You must try mango from South Asia, we have a lot of varieties and you might like it ;) Btw, the curry sauce in this restaurant is based using mango sauce.

  9. The curry with omurice looks like a gravy, no vegetable in there. Not nice.

  10. amateur cook: you are right, the omurice is actually gravy - not curry at all, and yes, it cooked without vegetables but salad is provided as a side dish.
