In Which the Blogger Cannot Decide Between Squid and Curry…

Ika Fry Curry

Ever have one of those days when you’re hungry but can’t seem to make up your mind as to what you want to eat?  That happened to me recently: I was torn between having Japanese-style curry on rice and breaded, deep-fried calamari!  As weird as that sounds, I was able to find a dish that pretty much satisfied both cravings!

Teriyaki Boy serves up an Ika Furai Curry: a generous helping of spicy-sweet brown curry with carrots, onions, and potatoes and what pretty much amounts to a whole squid’s worth of deep-fried calamari.  The curry is properly savory and goes well with the sesame rice.  As for the squid, it was gorgeously crunchy on the outside and absolutely tender on the inside.

All said, I was a fairly happy camper.  😉
