Cerritos, CA: Curry Katsu (@currykatsucerritos)

This little Curry restaurant is located in the same shopping strip mall as Lucille’s BBQ, next door to Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ.  Parking can be a bit tricky, so if you can’t find anything, park next door at Toys-R-Us.

Kristina from MadPoppin recommended this place and said it was worth the trip.  We arrived at 6:30 on a Wednesday and got a table by the door. The menu was very simple, and I decided on the pork cutlet, while Karen got the Menchi hamburger curry.  If you check in on Yelp, you can save a buck off appetizers. img_4170

The food came out quickly, and my pork cutlet was pounded nice and thin.  The curry I asked for was mild, yet a bit sweet like Mexican mole, served on a square bed of rice. The rice almost looked like it came from the pre-made rice you get from the Asian supermarket, as it was “too” square.  The cabbage salad they served went great with the food.

Overall a good dinner.  We left full but not stuffed.  I can see that this place can get busy, as there’s only a handful of tables. I’d come back again, if I have a hankering for curry.
