CoCo Ichibaya, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

I have wanted to try this place for a while now, especially after trying out Izumi Curry. Many have said that CoCo is infinitely better than Izumi. Unlike Izumi, diners at CoCo have a lot of decisions to make, like the level of spiciness of curry, the portion of rice and finally the toppings. I came here with a very good friend of mine, M, whom I have yet to give a nick name! I was in awe at the choices of ingredients for the curry – it was amazing – there were 28 different choices, ranging from cheese, tomato, asparagus, kimchee, to tofu, thin sliced pork and many more which I can’t remember.

I couldn’t go past the deep fried pork with omelette. The deep fried pork was good, crispy exterior and pork meat was tender – it wasn’t oily at all. The omelette, however, was a little thin – not like Izumi where it was thick and fluffy. The curry sauce absolutely delicious – I had it quite spicy and it hit the spot!

M opt the quail eggs, deep fried and it was delicious.

We also ordered a side of fried chicken – it was a little thin but it was definitely crunchy and complemented the curry well.

Thought the curry and pork chop was excellent, but the omelette was definitely better at Izumi. The curry I really enjoyed, it was fairly light in flavour and not overpowering. Will definitely come back and try something different besides the pork chop – but how can I say no to pork chop?

    That fried pork (and the fried chicken) looks I.N.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E!
