Finally came back to Megamall after a long while and had lunch at this place called Eri Curry, a Japanese curry restaurant whose name translates to ‘Goddess of Curry’. The name of the resto is also taken from their main chef, a pretty Filipina who grew up in Japan and has a passion for cooking some delicious Japanese food.
Eri Curry hopes to enhance our love of Japanese curry by giving their curry a sweeter flavor that’s sure to be enjoyed by Pinoys everywhere.

A lovely plate of California Maki.
Tofu Steak. The pieces of tofu were delicious, but I feel like the serving was too small for me.
Katsu Curry. You can choose the spiciness level of your curry, the ingredients, as well as the amount of rice in your plate. It was tasty, but I didn’t really enjoy it THAT much because I chose the ‘just right’ level (aka the tamest one of the bunch – Other levels were ‘spicy’ and ‘fiery’). The katsu was also slightly tough, which is a shame, because all of their meats are supposedly US imports.
And for dessert, we had the tall, beautiful, and ultra-refreshing Rainbow Kakigori – A tall mountain of shaved ice in three different flavors (strawberry, blueberry, green apple), topped with a cool scoop of vanilla ice cream with red beans.
I really love Japanese curry + katsu + rice combo, so I guess this is why my dining experience here wasn’t so bad! Maybe I should increase the spiciness level a little bit the next time I come back. But I find it really nice that Eri Curry manages to stand out amongst other popular Japanese curry restaurants in the metro by letting people customize their own curry dishes.
