Yesterday marked the beginning of ManyFest. The highlight of ManyFest is the Food Trucks war. I’ll be writing more on the trucks I tried in the next few days. One truck I didn’t see was J Curry. J Curry, short for Japanese Curry, is a new truck that is out on the streets in the last few weeks. I first encountered this truck when it parked at the MB Hydro Farmers Market.
Then it seemed to disappear off the streets. Fortunately I took a wander down Provencher last Friday. It turns out that one of the places J Curry has been is at the Provencher Farmers Market. Without further ado, here’s my thoughts.
J Curry Value:
The prices here are pretty good. It’s $8.50 for vegetarian curry and $9.00 for the Chicken version. The sizes are also quite good. Although, I think I’d rather pay a little more and get a little more of the substance to go with the curry. The Edamame at $2.50 is a good portion. 4/5
The two curries and the edamame are the only food items on the menu. Both of the curries makes equally good choices. 3.5/5
J Curry Quality:
This is really good curry. The curry is fairly thick, and the sticky rice is great for scooping it up. There is a nice touch of heat to it. I liked the variety of vegetables that come with the veggie curry. The edamame was a little on the bland side. It could use a little more salt. 4.5/5
The curry and the edamame both come in re-closeable containers. These containers are also bio-degradable. 5/5
The service is friendly. I also received my order in good time. 4.5/5
