Additional toppings such as hard boiled egg, bacon, cheese, eggplant and more are available from $1 onwards.
Widely known as the “King of Japanese Curry”, CoCo ICHIBANYA curry is mildly spicy and a tad sweeter than traditional curry. It is considered a perfect treat for me as I do not have tolerance to take spicy food.
The meat (pork cutlet / fried chicken) and omelette were not striking, but I am not complaining as the curry was thick, rich and flavourful enough. I had great comfort eating something that I was intimately familiar with, Japanese curry always an enjoyment for me.
You can complete your meal by adding fried snacks or healthy sides like green salads. There are more than 8 salad options to choose from, and the portion is good for two to share.
Exclusive only to this Westgate outlet, CoCo ICHIBANYA introduces speciality pancakes addition to their menu. There are four variants – Caramel Nutty Pancake ($7.90), Banana Choco Pancake, Rainbow Fruity Pancake, and Happy Berry Pancake (all $8.90).
