Hello Gudetama x Curry House!

I’m so egg-cited for the latest Sanrio’s latest restaurant mash-up! This time Sanrio will be partnering with Curry House to bring us a very special menu featuring our favorite lazy egg, Gudetama!

img_3493-1

Curry House is well-known for their amazing Japanese curry and I’m so thrilled that the special Gudetama menu will showcase one of their well known curry dishes!  The Gudetamainspired menu will be a delicious special multi-course meal!

img_3490

First up from the meal is a tasty salad and cup of corn soup.

img_3495

The corn soup is one of my favorite items to get at Curry House. It’s has such a creamy texture and simply melts in your mouth. Sorry Gudetama you will soon be melting away…in my tummy! Hehe!

The main course for the special Gudetama menu is their keema curry with rice. The keema curry is topped with a special Gudetama egg.

img_3494

Curry House’s curries are made with a special curry recipe that contains 25 various herbs and spices that are simmered with vegetables. Their keema curry is made from premium ground beef and mixed with vegetables. The sauce is so savory and wonderful with white rice. When the egg (sorry Gudetama) is mixed in with the curry sauce, it is so gude!

For dessert, there is a special custard pudding also featuring Gudetama.

img_3496

The pudding is made from scratch and is so egg-ceptionally soft!

Along with the savory and sweet treats, the special menu also comes with your choice of drink.

img_3491

Soda, iced tea, or iced green tea? Oh my gude-ness! I won’t be lazy with picking my drink!

The tasting menu will be available for $29. You not only get all the above delicious food but you also  get a limited edition Gudetama x Curry House beanie and a collectible placemat!

Hello Kitty Foodie Meets err Eats Gudetama!

I have a confession to make…I have a new crush. He’s not one you’d think would normally be my type. He’s lazy, unmotivated and always feels blah. Nevertheless he’s a cutie and he’s captured my heart. Who exactly is my new crush…well it’s no other than Gudetama, the lazy egg, Sanrio’s newest character!

IMG_9399-0

At the end of October, I happily wrote a post about the upcoming collaboration between Plan Check Kitchen and Bar and Sanrio where Plan Check would be offering a special menu featuring Gudetama. Ever since I wrote that blog post, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the day I would get to try this special menu featuring the oh so cute Gudetama. I fully intended to eat my crush up! Haha.

The happy day finally came recently when I visited Plan Check Kitchen and Bar Downtown.

IMG_9402-1

Just walking up to the restaurant I saw a lot of Gudetama love!

IMG_9401-0

The lazy egg definitely took over Plan Check. He was everywhere!

I saw Gudetama just lying around (He’s probably contemplating his fate of being eaten by his many fans! Haha!)

IMG_9378

I saw him cracking jokes! (He’s probably trying to make the best of his fate of being eaten by laughing! It’s always better to laugh than cry!) 😜

IMG_9377

I even saw good ol’ Gudetama inside the restaurant watching all his fans who came to eat him! 😉

IMG_9387

I apparently am not the only one with a crush on this lazy egg because there sure were a lot of people at Plan Check Kitchen and Bar ordering the specially developed Gudetama-inspired menu.

IMG_9403-0

I was all decked out in Hello Kitty gear that day but the server knew instantly that I was there for Gudetama and she quickly took my order.

Soon enough I was presented the first egg-licious delight via a orange-ginger egg cream soda.

IMG_9405-0

On top of this drink is white foam that is made from egg whites. The color of the soda is nice sunny color that looks like yolk. This is a drink that ginger fans would enjoy because I tasted the hint of ginger right from the start. The orange gives a nice citrus flavor that balances out the ginger but ginger is definitely what is prominent in this drink. It is different and unique, just like Gudetama!

The next item that was the served was the appetizer for this multi-course meal. The starter consists of crispy blanket egg, soy sauce egg, spicy pork belly sausage and miso aioli.

IMG_9406-0

I loved this appetizer right from the start. The golden brown panko crust on the outside was perfectly crisp! The miso aioli was all around.

IMG_9407-1

Slicing into it, I could just hear the crunch! Once sliced, I loved the layers of egg and spicy pork belly sausage. This dish is supposed to represent Gudetama, sleeping in a crispy warm blanket. Sorry to disturb your sleep, Gudetama but I was hungry and you were too delicious not to eat up! 😉

IMG_9408-0

Next up after the starter is the main course consisting of two beef sliders with sunny fried quail egg, cheese two ways, bacon two ways, ketchup leather and hot sauce.

IMG_9409-0

These sliders have to be the cutest sliders I have ever seen. The sunny fried quail egg has Gudetama’s face.

IMG_9412-0

I’m going to admit, I was a little sad staring at that face. It was almost as if Gudetama was saying “Don’t eat me, I am your cutie crush.”

IMG_9410-0

I felt a slight sadness slicing into my slider (and gasp saying goodbye to my egg friend) but my sadness was soon surpassed with delight because the sliders were delicious. Plan Check is famous for their burgers and these sliders is a good indication of why. The meat in the sliders were prepared just right. The beef was perfectly cooked and the bacon was crispy. The cheese and ketchup leather brought lots of flavor. There was hot sauce but the spice was subtle. These sliders were very fulfilling.

Last but definitely not least to this multi-course meal was the dessert. The dessert set consisted of chocolate custard pudding and an apricot thumbprint cookie.

IMG_9414-0

The apricot thumbprint cookie looks like a Gudetama over easy egg. This cute egg looking cookie was my favorite of the two desserts. It had a nice shortbread flavor and the apricot in the middle was a sweet touch.

The chocolate pudding though was not far behind this cookie in terms of making an impression on me. I simply adored the Gudetama design on top. It reminded me of coffee foam art. I found myself actually going around the design and eating around the corners first. Any one who loves chocolate will like this because the pudding was full of rich chocolate creaminess.

IMG_9419-1

It was truly a pleasure for this Hello Kitty Foodie to meet err eat Gudetama! Gudetama makes me smile and this lazy egg will always be in my heart err on my sleeve (since my my meal came with an exclusive Gudetama Plan Check t-shirt).

IMG_9418-1
