A few weeks ago we had the craving for roast duck, and there is no better place for roast duck than Loong Foong at Taman Paramount, so we headed there… just to discover that while the restaurant was open, the roast duck shop wasn’t.

Time for plan B – the classy looking Japanese Curry restaurant a few shops down the same row – Shokudo Japanese Curry Rice.

The restaurant is a blend of class and practicality. There are long wooden tables and benches for sharing, which exudes a bit of high school dining hall feel.

Ordering is done by heading to the counter, but they’re kind enough to serve the food to your table. Green tea and water refill is a DIY affair, which we didn’t mind.

The menu consists of some two dozen dishes, including curry rice and appetizers. We tried aigamo rousuni (marinated duck breast, RM 8), hiyayako (cold beancurd, RM 4), koebi karaage (deep fried shrimps, RM 5), and kani salad (crab stick salad, RM 10).

The appetizers were generally pretty good and priced rather competitively, I can totally imagining chilling out with some Asahi & deep fried shimps.

There are almost a dozen different curry rice to choose from. From chicken, pork fillet, prawn, vegetable, egg, and even cream croquette, all of which are priced between RM 13-15. For an additional RM 3, you also get a small salad, soup, and green tea, which is a pretty decent deal especially since the price is net.

After trying a few dishes, my favorite has to be their prawn curry rice. The seafood tasted fresh, juicy, and goes very well with creamy flavorful Japanese curry. The pork fillet is pretty decent, though I’d recommend Tonkatsu by Mai Mason over this version any day.

That being said, Shokudo is a pretty fine place for Japanese curry rice for any fan of this dish.

  1. KY, funny you crave roast duck and lately I been craving red curry with seafood. I made it at home . Now today I get roast duck with rice for lunch. Japanese curry I make at time also but in San Francisco being cold most of the time more spicy is good

    • Vickie: yah, for cold weather it’s nice, even though it’s not really that spicy.

  2. immature 2.0

    whenever i have cravings for roast duck, i head to my fridge to grab a bottle of fuah kuah sauce, and drink it

  3. The before meal items sure look great! Not crazy about Japanese curry, just ok with it…but my girl loves it! Bet she’d love this place.

  4. This place is not bad, but I still prefer Coco Ichibanya at 1 Utama for awesome Japanese curries.

  5. Do they make their curry fresh, or is it packaged Japanese curry?
