Curry Times Serving Yummy Curry Dishes for all generations

Yummy curry dishes -http://mrupupup.blogspot.sg/2014/01/curry-times-serving-yummy-curry-dishes.html

From the international franchise Old Chang Kee (the famous curry puff store), comes a cafe dedicated to serving all things curry for all generations. Curry Times is located at #01-07, Novena Velocity, 238 Thomson Road.

 Mrupupup got the lunch value set of curry chicken with rice, spicy long beans and red bandung drink (Rose syrup drink) at $8.90. Pretty good curry stuff - loved the tender chicken pieces with spicy curry sauce served together with fragrant rice. Other dishes we had were the curry chicken ramen noodles (about $8) and the dry chicken rice (about $8). Mrupupup also loved the decorations of the café with servers in traditional clothes. The great thing about Curry Times was that they serve biscuits - old style biscuits of sugar and it is for free!

Dried Chicken Curry

It's all about Curry

Curry Times in a brainchild of Old Chang Kee, the renown Singapore brand for it curry puffs and fried snacks. Curry Times specialise in curry dishes. Basically all the menu has the curry in it, accept for the drinks. As I have regular appointments at Novena Medical Centre, I stop by twice for a quick grub last month.

The first time, I tried their Dried Curry Chicken Rice ($6.90). Presented in an old metal bowl, similar to those in 70's. Serving is quite generous, almost cover 3/4 of the rice ( see pic). The curry is fragrant, the chicken is tender, boneless and bite size. It short, it seems like I am eating their filling of curry puff with rice. Since its Yummy, who'll complain.

For the second visit, I tried their Chicken Curry with Rice ($6.90). The curry is presented in traditional bowl with a plate of rice on the side. It is spicy with a bit of lemak in the curry. However, I find it lacks the punch compare to their dried curry. It is average at best, but you can find something better in normal coffee shop. Serving is generous, I counted at least 5 pcs of chicken and 3 potatoes.

Service is good. They are quick to attend to you, take your order and deliver your meal. However this level of service come with a price of 10% service charge on their bill as well. Atmosphere setting is simple but comfortable. Air conditioned coffee shop probably the best way to sums up the atmosphere that they try to create.

Overall: a meal of curry and drink will set you back around $10.50. Although it is air-conditioned environment, I find the price a bit steep. I would say $8 to 9 a meal and drink will be more reasonable or create some set meal or remove the service charge. Anyway, if I come back, it will be for the Dried Chicken Curry.
