Mom’s chicken curry is good, but we can’t deny ourselves a delightful bowl of sweet Japanese curry. Few restaurants focus on a menu surrounding just curry dons, so it’s no surprise to hear the masses chime Monster Curry as their go-to Japanese curry place.
Known for their large servings best for sharing, Monster Curry is living up to their name quite literally with their new Godzilla-themed menu from 18 May t0 15 July 2019. With the release of the classic sci-fi, cult hit, Godzilla: King Of Monsters being released soon, Monster Curry’s Godzilla-themed menu sure is an exciting release for fans.
The Godzilla Combo Curry (S$28.80) sees a massive combination of the restaurant’s favourites in a single plate. Fresh and crisp breaded Pork Katsu, Fried Shrimp, Tori Karaage and Premium Beef Steak to go with Monster Curry’s signature demi-glace Japanese curry sauce and rice.
While that’s a massive portion for more than one, the Godzilla Katsu Curry (S$14.80) sees a smaller serving of pork katsu and takoyaki.
The curry dishes are nothing quite to rave about, considering they are the restaurant’s existing dishes reconstructed for the theme.
It might be strange heading to Monster Curry for dessert, but for their Godzilla Volcano Honey Toast (S$12.80), it’s ample reason to go. The dessert is a tower of large deep-fried cubed bread slathered with honey and butter topped with mixed berry sauce, fresh strawberries and blueberries finished off with a scoop of Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream.
It’ll be a pity to constrain Godzilla to mere food; you’ll get Godzilla merchandise featuring the creature in various incarnations available for both purchase and redemption. This includes T-shirts (from S$23), Keychains (S$4.50), Coasters (S$6 for a set of four designs), Monster Curry Plates (S$58) and Menko cards.
If you’re not a spender, then perhaps the last in that list would be something you’ll want to notice. Menko cards are used in a traditional game, but beyond child’s play (literally), they just might be your ticket to Japan.
Bring home a pack of three Menko cards with every Godzilla Combo Curry or Godzilla Katsu Curry purchased and be the first to collect all 29 different designs to win a stay at trip for Japan for two and a stay at the Godzilla hotel!
Don’t miss out on photo opportunities with the towering 1.8-metre Godzilla mascot specially flown in from Japan. Check out Monster Curry’s Facebook page for updates on the schedule; the roaming monster might just be in your neighbourhood!
