Review: Curry King (Cambie)

by gigi on February 14, 2008

One of my and my co-workers’ favourite places to go to for lunch is Curry King on Kingsway in Burnaby. We used to go here almost every week, but in recent months, we haven’t been as much because the food doesn’t seem as tasty as before and some portions seem to be smaller. However, when I found out that another location opened up on Cambie St in Vancouver, I had to give it a try. :) It is located where Hugo’s used to be, right down the street from Gloucester’s Cafe, which is closed for the duration of the RAV line construction.

Upon going inside, most of the decor is the same as it was when it was still Hugo’s but there was a fresh coat of orange paint. :) Jenkins and I weren’t very hungry that day so we shared a baked spaghetti with pork chop for $10.95. This dish is huge (I think there are 2 pork chops here!) so especially if you are not too hungry, this is more than enough for two people.

The sauce on top is a basic HK-style tomato sauce with onions, mushrooms, and baked cheese on top. The pork chops are also cut into manageable slices so that makes the whole eating process less messy. Even though baked spaghetti is never al dente, there is something about it that I can almost never get enough of. :)

I had a bit of a cough that day so I also ordered a hot lemon tea with honey. The good thing about this was that when I finished my drink, I just poured more of the free tea into my cup, crushed the lemon to release some juice, and poured some honey in. It was almost like I got three cups of lemon tea for the price of one! :p

I have to say that the Curry King on Cambie is much better than the one on Kingsway. Jenkins has never been to the one on Kingsway before so I told him that the Cambie location is basically the Kingsway one back in its glory days. :) We have gone back several times since and have always been pleased with our selections.
