If you love your Japanese curry rice and Shibuya toasts, the good news is Monster Curry has opened two more outlets – at Punggol Waterway Point (#02-25) and 100AM Mall (#02-17).
The size of their curry size is indeed living up to its name.
Monster Curry serves Japanese style curry rice meals in humongous 41-cm plates, featuring its signature “demi-glace” curry sauce, perhaps the only one of its kind in Singapore.
Made with up to 14 different spices and vegetables, this gourmet curry sauce is slow-cooked close to boiling point for 48 hours to fully bring out its umami flavour.
What follows is a 24-hour period where the sauce “rests” and acids evaporate to achieve a smooth consistency.
Its deep brown colour, rich texture and balanced salty-bitter taste make it the canvas for Monster Curry’s variety of ingredient pairings.
Choose from a selection of golden-fried pork, chicken or seafood paired with rice, egg, and of course, the famed curry sauce.
Not to be missed is their in-house hot sauce that melds the flavours of chili padi, garlic, ginger and celery, a recommended complement to their trademark curry sauce. (Tip: Look out for the heart shaped icon on the curry – that’s the hot sauce. Recommended to mix thoroughly, and please do not eat it on its own. You have been warned.)
You can also set your desired level for all Monster Curry dishes: normal, extra, very, super and monster hot.
Signature dishes include the Monster Combo Curry in an outrageous portion that can serve up to 2 or even 3 persons. Composed of sliced crisp-fried pork katsu, pork shabu shabu, crunchy shrimp tempura, and fried fish fillet on top of the rice and sauce. Comes with grated cheese for that extra salty creamy taste in your meal.
Their latest menu offerings focus on Hokkaido, Japan’s largest and northernmost prefecture and its deep, cold oceans.
Known for its abundant fresh seafood, Hokkaido’s best ingredients – scallops, salmon and jumbo oysters – find their way to Monster Curry’s dishes. These are 3 NEW seasonal Hokkaido Curry dishes to look forward to:
Hokkaido Jumbo Oyster Omelette Curry ($16.80++)
Featuring just Hokkaido jumbo oysters, this dish caters to those who prefer to relish a singular, specialised taste.
You get 4 pieces of these jumbo oysters laden on a bed of omelette, rice, and a pool of Japanese curry.
What’s special with these oysters is how they are bred in low temperature waters due to Hokkaido’s extremely cold climate.
Rather than breeding them for the usual 1 year, Hokkaido oysters go beyond and are bred for 2 years.
So what you’ll see on your plates are jumbo oysters that are 1.5x the size of the usual oysters.
Pop one into your mouth (be careful when it’s HOT), and you would be surprised to feel the sensation of crunchy batter contrasted with plump, juicy interior. Oishii.
Hokkaido Seafood & Jumbo Ebi Omelette Combo Curry ($28.80++)
This mega curry meal is a seafood lover’s dream as it has everything from the Hokkaido oysters, scallops, fried salmon to the jumbo tempura prawns, served with steamed white rice, fluffy omelette, and its signature Japanese curry.
A serving includes 2 pieces of each, all deep-fried to a wonderful crunch: Hokkaido scallops, Hokkaido salmon fillets, Hokkaido jumbo oysters, and jumbo prawns.
Those who are concerned about the ‘seafood-y’ taste of oysters, need not worry. Let the sweet, rich taste of Hokkaido oysters spread in your mouth.
You could also dip the tempura seafood pieces into some of the curry, which is thicker in texture, mildly sweet and full of flavour.
Hokkaido Scallop & Salmon Omelette Curry ($16.80++)
This seafood curry version combines the highly sought-after Hokkaido sea scallops, one of the most recognized scallops in the world for its distinct quality and sweetness, with the equally famous Hokkaido salmon.
A tandem that scores high in succulence and healthy fats.
Order this and get 3 pieces of Hokkaido scallops, 2 pieces off fried Hokkaido salmon fillets with the rice-omelette-Japanese curry combo.
Matcha with Azuki Beans Honey Toast ($10.80++)
Also look out for the desserts here, as not many customers may know that they actually offer Shibuya Toasts.
Monster Curry’s Shibuya-style Honey Toast is a snack/dessert item served a la mode with Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream, fresh fruits and sauce, and available in 5 variants.
Try the new Matcha with Azuki Beans Honey Toast, combining sweet blocks of buttery crisp French toast with fresh strawberry halves and Azuki beans, then topped with a scoop of premium vanilla-flavoured ice cream drizzled with matcha green tea sauce.
Available 2pm onwards, the Honey Toasts are also available in smaller takeaway portions for only $6.50/$5.80.
Other fruity choices include Mixed Berries ($10.80++), a duo of strawberries and blueberries; Tangy Mango ($10.80++), using fresh mango cubes and a sweet tart mango sauce; and Chocolaty Banana ($9.80++), with sliced bananas and a classic chocolate fudge.
A non-fruit option is Caramel with Marshmallows ($9.80++), a fun blend of marshmallows, walnuts and luscious caramel sauce.
With a monster-sized appetite, you might need some extras. Don’t worry, Monster Curry offers 11 items in its menu as sides.
Popular ones to try are Sausages ($4.50 for 3 pieces), Tori Karaage ($4.50 for 3 pieces), and Fried Shrimps ($4.50 for 3 pieces). All sides are served with finely shredded fresh cabbage.
