I was at Giant Hypermarket to get some DIY supplies to fix a leak in my bathroom and decided that I should just grab dinner there. Unfortunately, dinner there means either Pizza Hut or KFC. After 2 seconds of intensely deep thought, I decided to head to the latter. I wanted to get their Masak Merah Rice Wrap because that’s the most… vegetable-y option on their menu WHICH IS ALSO DELICIOUS. Don’t mention their coleslaw or I’ll slap you.
So I was queuing and looking around when I spotted something new on one of their stand banners. It said Curry Rice Bucket, RM 6.50 (a la carte), RM 7.90 (set) and the picture looked mouthwatering. So I changed my mind and got a takeaway of that instead.
Let’s see what I’ve got…
Actually, it smells wonderful, like real kari ayam (chicken curry). The food was warm so the smell accompanied me along the drive back home. And I think tomorrow morning when I get into my car that smell will assault me again.
And it looks… alright, doesn’t it? No, it did not look like the one printed on the banner, but it looks like… curry. If you think buying something from a fast food joint in Malaysia that looks like the real thing is a given and nothing to shout about, please recall to your mind the images of a certain McChicken or a certain Lychee Pie from another fast food joint.
Oh, yeah, do not be deceived by how big the “bucket” looked in the above picture. I took a close up shot, that’s all. To give you some perspective, this is how the whole set looks like, with a small fries and regular sized soft drink.
Yeah, the “bucket” is actually pretty small, but it’s alright, I try to not have heavy dinners anyway. It contains a bowl of rice, half a piece of Zinger patty and two small cubes of potato. But the curry gravy was rather generous, enough to coat all the rice.
And it tastes as good as it smells, which is… it tastes like real kari ayam. Of course, if this is a sponsored post, I could go further and write things like “Oh it is so finger lickin’ good! It tastes almost as good as the kari ayam that I got from that popular warung (Malay food stall) under a tree in downtown KL!” or something like that. But since this is not a sponsored post, we’ll just leave it at that: This Curry Rice Bucket tastes like a usual serving of kari ayam and rice.
Will I have this again? Yes, since it is as cheap as having hawker food…. no, what am I saying? No, I mean, No! There’s no vegetables in this meal at all! I will not have this again! My mom will never see me have this again!
