CoCoICHIBANYA has certainly gone from strength to strength in Singapore- the largest curry restaurant chain in the world has recently opened their 5th outlet on our sunny island at Plaza Singapura. To date, the chain has a whopping 1,400 outlets worldwide!
Located on level 3 in Plaza Singapura’s new wing and offering a view of Orchard Road (perfect for people watching), the restaurant has a modern bistro concept with private booth seats and plenty of natural light streaming through the windows.
Currently, CoCoICHIBANYA is the only curry house in Singapore boasting such an extensive menu. With countless of curry rice and omelette rice options to choose from, diners are truly spoilt for choice. What’s more, CocoICHIBANYA offers the flexibility to customize your meal-diners can specify the portion of rice, curry spice levels as well as toppings.
To whet our appetites, the tasting started with Tofu and Fried Fish Salad ($7), which comes with either Goma (sesame) dressing or Japanese Soy Sauce (Shoyu) dressing. We also sank our teeth into delicious Deep fried Chicken Gyozas ($4.20), which had the perfect ratio of crisps golden wrap and juicy chicken filling

CoCoICHIBANYA offers curry with spice levels ranging from level 1 to 5. In addition, they also cater to children and vegetarians with mild and vegetarian stock curries.

Pair the versatile curries with popular crowd-favorites such as Thinly Sliced Boiled Beef ($4), Deep Fried Pork Cutlet ($4) or tender Black Pepper Grilled Chicken ($4).

If you prefer something uncommon, there’s piquant Grilled Pork and Kimchi ($4) and Grilled Squid which emanates a smoky char.

My top pick is the Grilled Spinach, Bacon and Corn– a tango of robust savory and sweet bursts of flavors.

Desserts were nothing to shout about, but did a satisfactory job rounding up a spice laden meal as they were served either chilled or frozen. Green tea lovers can relish in the Matcha Cheese Cake ($4.80) or Single Scoop Matcha Ice Cream with Azuki beans ($3.80). My personal favorite was the Chocolate Crepe Cake ($5.50), prepared with fresh Hokkaido Milk. The premium milk makes another appearance in the Cream Puff ($5.50)- a dessert sure to be a hit with kids.

Diners can count on CoCoICHIBANYA for appealing and comforting meals in a modern setting which does not hurt the wallet.

If you think Japanese curry are simply sweet and not shiok at all, think about it again!Coco Ichibanya is famous for Japanese curry, there are in total 7 level of spiciness, the lowest level being mild (not spicy at all, suitable for children), then level 0 (Standard) to level 5 (Crazy hot). This is a level 3 thin-sliced boiled beef curry, and the level of spiciness made me gulped down more rice than usual.

After making waves in Japan and other countries for 3 decades, it's finally here in Singapore! Indeed, I saw it everywhere I went in Japan!Anyway, the first CoCoICHIBANYA Curry House in Singapore is conveniently located on B3 of 313@Somerset. If you're going down from the Forever 21 escalators, turn left, it's at the corner. It is open-concept and has comfortable seating. When my friend and I were there, there weren't lotsa people around.

Clam and Tomato Curry Omelette Rice - $14

It's very nice! The clams are big, juicy and fresh! The omelette is fluffy "fuwa-fuwa"! The curry spiciness level can be customised and I chose the middle level. Great!!

It was a nice branded Japanese-style Curries eatery, unique and interesting visit with a gang of friends. Customization to match patrons’ preference, Spiciness could be chosen from level one to level five, rice from 150g to 550g to avoid over-eating, different varieties of sauce based, and additional topping.

Shown as above, mine was on level 3 moderate spiciness and 150 grams of rice. The portion was unexpected generous, part of rice was diving in curry. The broth was richly thick and savoury, very smooth and scrumptious every bite. Chicken was slightly tender with a crispy skin, potatoes and veggies bathe in curry were nice too. I wondered how the taste for spiciness level 5, I will revisit to try the tongue-burning version next round definitely.

I recommend choosing level 2, the Hot level to be able to taste the authentic curry with that extra excitement! For the more adventurous, go for level 4 which I personally love! 

And of cause, for those who cannot take spicy, there's always the mild option! So there is something for everybody, even the kids!

I think many of us have a soft spot for good curry that is accompanied by fresh ingredients and a large serving of rice! At coco, you can get all of that! Japanese curry is traditionally less spicy, but for some, that means there is not enough kick to the dish! However, at this restaurant you get to decide how spicy you want your plate to be!Also, adding a serving of cheese to the dish really gives it an extra texture that is actually really welcome!

The rice is also fragrant and not too soggy too. I will be back again to try their other main dishes some other days.

I dined at the somerset branch as it was the nearest to the escalator and we were too hungry to move further. Luckily there was a student promotion going on where for $10.80, you can get one plate of curry with either chicken katsu/seafood/etc. and a salad with a drink. Quite worth it if you ask me!

I ordered the chicken katsu curry rice as I've tried the Seafood one during my previous visit, which will always be my 1st choice regardless.

The chicken slices were quite a thick cut but the flour that was coated around it was even thicker and made me feel like I was eating more of the flour than the chicken meat itself. I didn't like that the skin was still intact either ]: so i had to slowly remove them one by one. The curry was similar to the previous time one but this time I think I ordered level 2 spiciness? it was a tad spicier but still manageable.

I should stick to my choice of eating the seafood one the next time round!

After this visit, Coco Ichibanya has definitely entered into my mental list of delicious places in town. If you're a student, there is this student promotion going on: $10.80 nett for any of the super huge plate of rice + Japanese curry in different flavours, including pork, vegetable (not so worth it ), chicken cutlet, seafood etc. I chose the seafood one because I think it should be more worth it.

), chicken cutlet, seafood etc. I chose the seafood one because I think it should be more worth it. You can choose the spiciness level. I chose level 1, which was supposedly not spicy but there was still a hint of spiciness. It should be very manageable for most. If you are not a hardcore spicy addict, try not to go beyond Level 1, because it escalates pretty quickly. For the seafood japanese curry, the prawns are (no doubt) quite small given the price, but there were quite a few. The japanese curry is VERY flavourful to go with the rice, and I found that there is not enough rice. They could have put lesser curry and more rice instead. Nevertheless, the overall presentation and taste-wise, I liked it quite a lot.

We were suppose to have lunch today in Tonkichi @ Orchard Central but due to some time difficulties we decided to have a quick lunch in 313@Somerset. It was a toss between Popeye's Chicken and Curry House CoCo Ichibanya. Guess who won.

CoCo as far as I know is quite popular. There were several occasions where we visited the vicinity and there was a queue outside. Today, however, there was no queue. Just a few tables were occupied. Why? I think its because of a new restaurant that had an opening promo of $1 per sashimi/sushi dish. But more on that later.

The curry is not too thick nor thin, just nice for me though. The chicken cutlet however, is a little too oily for me.

I did not choose a very high spicy level for my curry, but generally Japanese curry are not very spicy, they are just really rich, fragrant and savoury and the version served at Coco Ichibanya is no exception. I really liked how thick and fragrant the curry is, how mixing the curry easily coats the nice sticky japanese rice that will leave you wanting more. The Tonkatsu pieces were crispy on the outside and a little dry on the inside, but soak it a little in the curry and it will be really nice to go with rice. I was also surprised how the cheese went well with the curry sauce, it could be possibly overwhelming for some, but I liked how the savoury cheesy flavour blended with the curry. This is the perfect meal to warm yourself up, especially during wet and damp weather!
