Beef Yakiniku Curry Rm 23

When this Beeft Yakiniku Curry first served on the table, I was not really impress with it. First because it apperance doesn't look appealing, however it end up this is the second dish I like the most! The standard curry is just a normal taste curry, in which if you are not a spicy person, you can opt for this. (Although I didnt know how they judge the standard of "standard", but it's milder or as mild as Level 1 spiciness.)

The beef itself is tender, cut into thin strip, and stir-fried. Its delightly flavourful, and I like how they fried this with sesame! The overall of this dishes is just awesome!

Would recommend you to pair with level 2 or above curry spiciness. The beef itself is delightful, but the curry is too mild for liking.

Pork Cutlet Omelette Curry RM 26

Pork Cuttlet Curry Rm 21

This would be a more fulfilling dishes, as it has egg (protein) and big chunks of pork cutlet! Compare to other dishes, this one come with less surprise. It is still delicious,tender cutlet serving together with milk omelette that aim to keep you full. I focus more on the curry itself. Pairing with Level 1 spiciness. People who do not eat spicy at all could have try level 1.

Creamed Mushroom Omelette Curry

Pairing with Level 3 Spiciness, I drank water at the first try. I guess I would cough more, and feeling hot if I continue to consume more. Ironically, this appear to be my top favourite of the night. I knew this would be prefect of me by pairing with level 2 spiciness.

However mushroom and creamy are great combo, I try to omit the curry while taking this. The curry would be too much for me to handle soon.

The creamy mushroom remind me of carbonara. It is well-cooked, it remain juicy inside, without absorbing much of the creamy sauce outside, but the hot serving of it, in creamy & mushroom combo are just prefect. You get to try the juicy of mushroom and the creaminess at the same time, just oh-so-heaven.

I am always a fan of Japanese food, even Japanese curry rice!

I love the not-too-overloaded sweetness in the Japanese curry with appropriate level of spiciness.

Do you know the Japanese use apple paste in their Japanese curry?

That is why Japanese curry tastes lighter but not too bulky like other types of curry in Malaysia.

I was invited to the grand launch of Coco ICHIBANYA, 1Utama along with other MHB members and the founder.

I was among the first few to try their Japanese curry rice.

This is a very new concept in Malaysia to have an outlet specially for Japanese curry rice.

Guess what? Quite a number of people don't know about Japanese curry.

I saw their puzzled looks when I mentioned "Japanese curry".MHB members - Yours truly, Kate Lee, Kelly Siew, Sharon Loh, Stephanie Lim.Supermodel Amber Chia. TV Host Gary Yap, Orange Ning and Julie Woon.

CoCo ICHIBANYA’s tagline is “The
tastiness you can choose” where you get to customise your meal based on
your preference and appetite – from the spiciness level of the curry, to
the various toppings, and even the amount of rice. There are 7
different levels of spiciness for the curry, starting from mild for
kids, the signature original flavour, and from level one’s medium hot to
level five’s “crazy hot”.

There is a selection of over 30 meat and
seafood varieties to choose from including chicken, beef, pork, prawns,
clams and more, and some are paired with toppings such as egg, corn and
croquettes. If you’d like more toppings just add-on what you want or if
you want more/ less rice, simply order the amount that is right for
you.

On the menu are also some fusion items
like spaghetti with curry meat sauce, curry gratin and curry pilaf,
while for those who don’t eat spicy food there are also non-spicy
options such as seafood spaghetti with cream, creamy corn soup and
salads. Have some juices, coffee, teas, soft drinks, floats, milkshakes
or even beer to go along with your meal and have a sweet ending with
some Matcha or vanilla ice cream!

There are 5 levels of spiciness available. I personally think level 3 is just nice for the aroma, spiciness and taste.

The spiciness of level 3 does not overwhelm the aroma and taste of the Japanese curry gravy. For people who love to challenge the maximum spiciness can go for level 5.

For people who can't take spicy food, you may stick to standard which is level 1 and enjoy the taste and aroma of Japanese curry.

The CoCo ICHIBANYA branch in 1 Utama seats a
maximum of 65 persons in the 128 square meters restaurant which exudes a
casual, friendly and unpretentious ambience. Folks in Penang, look out
for the second outlet which will be opening in Queensbay Mall soon.
