Recently I was invited down for an intimate food tasting session at
CocoICHIBANYA Curry House at Star Vista!
I was delighted to be invited for this food tasting session
because I am a fan of Japanese curry rice
which is flavourful and yet not too spicy
and I’ve previously dined at CocoICHIBANYA outlet at 313Somerset!
Star Vista is conveniently located close to Buona Vista MRT station
with sheltered walk way all the way till the mall.
Let’s take a look at what’s on the menu shall we? 😉
As you can see on the menu above,
First you select the curry dish from the various selection available,
then you select the quantity of rice,
choose the spice level,
& lastly add toppings if you’d like! 😉
By asking for less rice, there’s a $1 deduction!
Best for ladies who wants to enjoy Jap curry rice
without busting their waistline
& extra savings, woohoo~!
For the spice levels, level 0 is standard.
We also tried level 1 and 3.
More on the various levels in a bit!
Here’s another pic of the toppings available on the menu,
such as cheese, kimchee (!) & mushroom.
Here’s our lovely host Lucas ordering delicious Japanese curry dishes for us. ＼（＾▽＾）／
With my sister, Jia Hui. (^▽^)
Our salad greens that came with our mains.
Lucas’ salmon croquette with cheese
& spice level 3!
We had the a taste of the curry and it had a stronger pepper/spice taste,
definitely recommended for those who’d like their curry that pack a punch! 😉
Our pork cutlet curry rice
spice level 0.
The cutlet was fried to a golden perfection,
but it was a pity that it slightly on the overcooked side
and a tad too tough for our taste.
We gave our feedback to the staff and hopefully it won’t be too tough for others in the future!
Our omelette rice aka Omu rice with mushroom & cheese toppings
with less rice
spice level 0 standard.
We ordered chicken karaage to add to this dish~
As mentioned, I am a fan of Japanese rice
and I am also a BIG fan of omu-rice!
The combination of eggs, mushroom and cheese with the curry was yummy!
I liked that the mushroom tasted fresh and flavorful in diced pieces
& the chicken karaage was also perfect!
I probably had too much of goodness in my belly that day.
So this has got to be my FAVE dish of the day.

We also tried beef curry, on Lucas’ recommendaiton
with extra spinach topping that added a sweetness to the dish
with spice level 1
My sister noted that this dish had a stronger tumeric taste to it!
Definitely recommended combination for people who like beef and spinach. 😉
We also ordered a strawberry yougurt smoothie
which was sweet & refreshing!
Def’ a hit with folks who love strawberry + yougurt. 😉
With my sis & Lucas!
