If there’s one thing that Long John Silver’s is known for?
It’s their consistency.
Sure, they never, ever, have breakout food that makes Singaporeans go wild like the Nasi Lemak burger.
But, at the same time, they’ve not had any food mishap that could cause a person’s head to roll like salted egg fries.
Yes, I’m going to keep harping on that cuz #superdisappointed, yeah?
So when my boss threw his credit card (with a daily limit of $20) to me? I knew what to go for.
The Japanified version of Long John Silver’s.
Called the Authentic Japanese Curry food items, you can now get Tokyo Seafood Curry, Tokyo Chicken Curry and not just any crazy potatoes, but Osaka’s crazy potatoes.
Here are their prices for your reference:
Tokyo Seafood Curry: $7.50
It consists of deep-fried calamari (5 pieces), a huge piece of dory fish (1 piece), rice and Japanese Curry.
And a cup of drink, of course.
Tokyo Chicken Curry: $7.00
Now, don’t be misled by the name. While there are two pieces of chicken, they have two pieces of shrimp as well, coupled with rice and Japanese Curry.
Osaka Crazy Potatoes: $3.90
If you’re as familiar with Long John Silver’s as I am, you’d know crazy potatoes isn’t a new thing.
They’re a mixture of fries and potato chips, and usually topped with cheese. But not this time. This time, it’s topped with takoyaki sauce.
Although you can add cheese for $1.20.
So, How Did It Go?
I ordered the Tokyo Seafood Curry (obviously, since my boss’s paying for it) and the Osaka crazy potatoes.
I mean, it’s free food. Why go for one when you can go for two, right?
And this is what I get.
The Osaka Crazy Potatoes
And the main lead of the show, the Tokyo Seafood Curry
I’ll say, the portion looks generous enough. But appetising, sorry, no.
So if you’re someone who prioritises feeding your IG feed over feeding your stomach? This isn’t for you.
But as a wise old man once said, it’s not how it looks. It’s how it tastes that’s important.
