Are you looking for something new to your palate? I Love Davao recommends Curry Express, a hole-in-the-wall restaurant located at Circumferential Road, Davao City. Have a taste of their savory, hot and spicy authentic Indian dishes at very affordable prices.
Curry Express is relatively a small restaurant. There is nothing fancy about the place but if you like Indian dishes, you will not be disappointed. It serves not just curry but a whole lot of Indian dishes like masala, biryani, samosa, chapatti to name a few.
Davao Bloggers were lucky enough to be invited by the owner to try their best-sellers. Some of my favorites were their chicken curry, chili chicken and chicken 65. They’re just perfect for my taste buds. If you love spicy food, I’m sure you’ll love it too.
Here’s a glimpse of the food that we tried to give you an idea what Curry Express has in their menu.
Express Chicken Curry. Chicken Curry is ne of the most popular Indian dishes that Filipinos love. Their version is more on the hot & spicy side prepared with authentic Indian spices. Definitely a must-try when you eat at Curry Express. I love to pair it with their Chapati. It's a perfect match!
Chili Chicken. Another favorite dish at the restaurant is their Chili Chicken. It's basically India's version of sweet and spicy chicken with a little twist as there are other spices in it.
Chicken 65. If you love spicy food like myself, this one is for you. Otherwise, stay away from this dish. It's extra hot and spicy deep fried chicken. The dish originated from the south Indian city of Chennai. The name was derived from the year it was introduced which was in 1965.
Shrimp Biryani. Made from a long grain Basmati rice, Curry Express' biryani is also a must-try if you want to taste a food which represents India. It's usually mixed with chicken but can also be mixed with seafood and other meat.
Shrimp Masala / Potato Masala . Masala is the Indian term for spice blend. The Shrimp Masala has the right amount of Indian spices which make it tastes good.The Potato Masala on the other hand was also cooked perfectly with the right tenderness and spiciness.
Aloo Bonda. Aloo Bonda is a traditional Indian deep fried potato balls made with spicy potato mix. It's crispy on the outside and soft inside.
Chapati. Also known as roti, Chapati is an Indian flatbread. It's a common staple in South Asian countries of India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Again, pair this with chicken curry for a satisfying gastronomic experience.
