Go! Go! Let's go! カレーライス02 June, 2011 by Chad
Go! Go! Curry is a Japanese born franchise chain serving curry rice. It’s a fairly common sight around Tokyo and since the opening of Ion Orchard in 2009, the chain has found it’s way onto Singapore’s shores. More recently, a second outlet appeared at 313@Somerset, which we paid a visit to on a few occasions.
This outlet is curiously located inside of 313@Somerset’s food court. Not exactly where you’d expect to find decent Japanese cuisine but it does have its own section and seating area.
Go! Go! Curry’s most noticeable trademark is probably the gorilla logo but the company gets its name from baseball superstar Hideki Matsui, who sports the number 55 on his jersey. As a result, the next most distinct feature of Go! Go! Curry is the larger than normal portions available.
Prices are by no means cheap (see Singapore menu here), but you certainly get what you pay for. Even their smallest “healthy” option should be more than enough for most. “Economy”, “Business” and “First” class denote the extra servings of rice you get with your meal. Adventurous individuals may opt for the Grand Slam, which combines everything on the menu with the largest rice serving possible, the equivalent of about 2.5 bowls.
Thankfully, quantity is not all that Go! Go! Curry is about. The eatery serves its own unique style of curry that you won’t find else. It’s especially thick, sticky and most certainly tasty.
Kind of like re-heated curry that is more delicious the next day. Differences aside, I would even rate it as probably the next most enjoyable curry in Singapore, after Bon Gout that is.
Curry rice has always been a staple part of my diet from my youth, so I’m not sure how impartial I’m being here. But those in need of a no nonsense curry fix will be rewarded by visiting Go! Go! Curry.
