Suika's Signature Beef Curry with Tonkatsu

This weekend was a symphony of savoury spices and rich curries, a dream come true for any self-proclaimed curry aficionado like myself. It all began last Friday with a delightful Veggie Curry at Masa Japanese Restaurant. The vibrant mix of vegetables swimming in a flavorful curry base was a lovely vegetarian indulgence.

But the journey didn't end there. Yesterday, I ventured into uncharted territory, exploring the world of Soup Curry Garaku in Richmond. This unique take on the classic Japanese curry, with its brothy base and explosion of textures, was a revelation.

And today? Today was all about returning to a beloved favourite – Suika's Signature Beef Curry. For me, a beef curry base reigns supreme. Its richer flavour and deeper colour offer a taste sensation that chicken curries, with their milder nature, simply can't compete with.

Suika truly is my happy place. Their Beef Curry is perfection in a bowl—aromatic, flavorful, and deeply satisfying. To elevate this culinary masterpiece even further, I opted for a double dose of deliciousness—a crispy Tonkatsu (pork loin cutlet) and some juicy Karaage (deep-fried chicken). The contrasting textures—the melt-in-your-mouth pork and the satisfying crunch of the chicken—added another layer of enjoyment to this already phenomenal dish.

As I left Suika, my stomach and heart were even fuller. This weekend was a testament to Japanese curry's versatility and sheer deliciousness. From the classic comfort of a veggie curry to the adventurous world of soup curry, and finally, the return to a familiar favourite at Suika, each experience was unique and unforgettable.
