I've been tempted the try Monster Curry for some time and today, I happened to be by and decided, "What the heck", as I was running around with errands and it was a toss up between Ginza Barin again and trying Monster Curry, something new to me..
To be fair, I can completely understand why Monster Curry is popular and does well... Generous (if pounded flat to make it seem even larger than it is) size but still good value for a downtown location and for that, what's not to like, right..? Well, for me at least, price, is one aspect, which contributes to perceived-value... and here's where the problem is, for me... whether it's for the same amount of money, or just a couple of bucks more, I have other choices... If just around the corner, and if the same two options were presented to me again, I'd for sure head to Ginza Barin.. or else Tonkichi in the next building, especially if they bring back their Iberian Pork promotion.. or if it's 'cheap n good' and consistently so, then I'll open my wallet to Saboten..
I only had the Pork Katsu Curry Rice so can't speak about their other offerings, but my pork was flat and very dry inside, and I found the curry to be very one-dimensional and a little too sweet..
