Below is a food review that I wrote back in 8 May 2008 on another blog. Decided to port it over here since the other blog is inactive.

This is my first visit to Curry Favor. Heard that it serves good Japanese Curry. I personally loves Japanese Curry. (And I seldom take Indian curry unless it’s with Prata)

Do you know that the Europeans are the first to introduce curry to Japan in the late 19th century?

The restaurant is located at the 3rd floor of [email protected] Sq. There is another branch at Stamford House.
I ordered a Cheese Katsu (Pork Filet) Curry while StarryNite ordered a Rosu Katsu Curry. There are 2 types of curry to choose, regular and spicy. Both are just as good.
The Rosu Katsu taste normal. But thanks to the great curry, it make the dish taste better than the usual Pork Katsu you get elsewhere. Hey, they don’t call themselves Curry Favor for nothing.

The Cheese Katsu Curry is great. The Cheese Katsu looks like Nuggets. But the inside is filled with cheese and pork meat. The good thing about this dish is that the cheese and the curry sort of compliment each other. A must try for cheese lover.

The only disappointment about Curry Favor is their drinks. Ice Lemon Tea was sold out for the day, so I choose Lime Juice which I soon regretted. The lime juice is too sour. Should have just stick to the ice water.
But I must say that the service is excellent. The staff are very attentive and automatically comes over to our table to refill the ice water when it falls below the 3/4 mark. Good job.
Food: 8.5/10
Service: 9/10
Ambience: 8/10
Note: Cheese lovers must try the Cheese Katsu (Pork Filet) Curry. Give the Lime Juice a miss if you don’t like sour stuff.

It’s the time of the year when Starbucks gives out free coffee in support of The Salvation Army.

Date: 4 Dec 2008
Time: 5 – 7PM
Just donate any amount to The Salvation Army and get a tall-sized beverage free.
PS: Personally, I avoid Starbucks when they give out free drink. Queue is too long, place is too noisy. I rather pay for my drinks and make my donation.

It’s the annual Starbucks Christmas Open House.

Starbucks will be giving out free coffee on 6 Dec 2007 (Thursday) between 5pm to 7pm. You can make a donation of any amount and all proceeding will go to The Salvation Army. BTW: This only applies for Singapore Starbucks. Not sure if other countries have similar events too.

Expect long queues. For me, I’ll rather go on normal days so that I can enjoy my coffee peacefully.
