I’ve been hearing about Monster Curry for quite some time now, and since there’s an outlet at Tampines 1, I decided to give it a try. The restaurant was decked out in vibrant colors of red, making it very eye catching. Orders have to made first (as well as payment) at the counter before being (self) seated and waiting for the food to arrive.
Monster Curry offers a wide variety of different curry such as the original, meat, seafood and even the different combos. There are even extra toppings that you can add to your order A plate of curry ranges from about S$10 to 25++, depending on whether it is a combo meal or not. But one thing I have to say is that the plates are really huge! Good thing the portions for the normal curry (not the combo) is perfect for those with a healthy appetite, else sharing it between two might be a good idea.
There are 5 levels of spiciness, so MM and I went with level 1 while M went for level 3. According to M (who loves her spicy) it was not spicy enough! Anyways between the 3 of us, we had the Cheese Chicken Katsu Curry, Cheese Omelet Curry and Chicken Katsu Curry. There wasn’t much variety for drinks and the prices of the drinks weren’t exactly that cheap. We ended up settling for 3 bottles of 'Still' water, yes, you read right… water for S$1.50 each (pretty pricey if you ask me).
|Cheese Omelet Curry: The Omelet Cheese was not too bad, soft and fluffy covering the white little mountain of rice.|
|Chicken Katsu Curry: Needless to say, was almost the same as the Cheese Chicken Curry, sans the cheese and a spiciness |
level of 3. M was even commenting that she would go for level 5 the next time to get a more ‘shiok’ experience.
The meal cost a total of about S$51++, which for the size of the plate and portion can be considered to be quite substantial and reasonable. The only thing I feel was not that justified was the pricing and variety of the drinks, with a bottle of water costing S$1.50 and a can drink S$2.50 it was not worth it. Still I would definitely go back again to try out the other mouthwatering curries, especially when I am in a famished mode!
