We had dinner at Izumi Curry and Grill at The Podium last July. It was the first time my son and I visited this Japanese restaurant, while hubby has already been here previously with his officemates.
Hubby’s order, the Megabeef Steak Curry, is U.S. beef burger steak served over Japanese rice and topped with sweet and spicy curry sauce. As you can see, he loves everything on his plate smothered in curry sauce. That sunny-side up egg is not part of the dish, though; it’s an additional order. The beef patty was plump, meaty, tender and juicy.
And this is my Fish Katsu Curry, breaded cream dory fillet with Japanese rice and curry sauce. If you don’t like your meal smothered in curry sauce, then you can request to have the sauce served separately. That way, you can control how much curry sauce you want for your meal. That’s what my son and I did. The perfectly crispy and lightly seasoned fish fillets went well with the sweet and tangy tartar sauce.
This Chicken Katsu Curry was for our son. It is breaded chicken with Japanese rice and curry sauce. The chicken fillet was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. It was also seasoned just the way our son liked it. He enjoyed dipping it in the curry sauce. He wasn’t able to finish everything on his plate, though, as the serving was huge for his small tummy.
We capped off our dinner with these smooth, creamy and not-so-sweet Strawberry and Green Tea Ice Cream. Two scoops for Php70.00 is not bad at all.
Overall, we like the food at Izumi Curry and Grill, as well as the generous servings and their reasonable prices.
