Melbourne, VIC 3000
This Friday night’s dinner was a simple affair, some curry at Classic Curry Company to warm the tummy from the cold weather.
The interior may be Spartan, but it’s full of delicious smells and smiling staff.
|Butter Chicken ($10)|
Chris’ Butter Chicken ($10) is smooth and sweet, without too much acidity from the tomatoes to meddle in affairs. Chicken chunks are brilliantly tender and slightly charred at the edges. A bit too sweet for my liking but still comfort food at its finest.
|Mild Fish Curry ($10)|
My Fish Curry ($10) had a gravy that’s very similar to the butter chicken, leaving me a little bit disappointed. But the big chunks of fish fillets were surprisingly well marinated with a deep smoky taste to it, even if it is a bit on the salty side. I swapped my rice for a serve of pillowy soft Naan ($1). At a dollar a pop, it won’t hurt to overindulge.
Rating: 12/20 – comfort food
|Oreo Cheesecake ($5.9)|
Then we sauntered off to Secret Recipe to pamper ourselves with a slice of velvety Oreo Cheesecake ($5.9)
We spent the last part of our night watching the city lights from the indoor garden at Melbourne Central.
Beautiful bokeh and a slightly green but very cuddly boyfriend
