CURRY HOUSE


Today for LUNCH we ate at Curry House in Little TOKYO, in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.
This restaurant specializes in Japanese curry,served over rice or spaghetti.
This restaurant used to be our favorite before we went vegan.
We used to eat here at least once every 2 weeks.
We even had our rehearsal dinner here 10 years ago.
That's how much we loved it.
We had to stop eating here because they only serve WHITE rice, which we don't eat.
But recently, our friends had dinner there and informed us that they recently added BROWN rice to the menu.
But, you have to pay $1.00 extra.

So, we decided to have lunch here today.
We both ordered the MILD VEGETABLE CURRY OVER BROWN RICE AND ICED GREEN TEA.
Potatoes, green beans, corn, and baby carrots in curry sauce and  topped with pickled radishes.

*When you order curry here, you asked if you want it mild, medium or hot.
I contacted Curry House recently and they informed me that the MILD is the only VEGAN option.

Over all, we thought the curry was good, but not great.
We prefer it spicier, but for obvious reasons, we have to stick with the mild curry.
But we love the fact that we can order brown rice now.
So, I guess you say that WE"RE BACK, CURRY HOUSE!!!!

Little things like that make all the difference don't they.
:)
I'm guessing they put butter or cream in the other sauces that makes them not vegan - but I'd have thought it would be easy enough to without those!!

My favorite Chinese restaurant has brown rice and recently a whole grain buckwheat noodle dish. Their tofu is homemade and the veggies always fresh--so here's a shout out to East Asia in Somerville, MA! :-)
