If you talk about Japanese Curry, most of us would think of the thick brown curry sauce. However, I just got to know recently that there is actually a Japanese White Curry! Tengawa is the first restaurant to bring in the special Hokkaido White Curry for all foodies in Singapore! I was so excited to try!

They offer Free Flow Marinated Cabbage as a starter. They have a variety of sauces for you, Tonkatsu sauce, homemade chilli sauce, chilli powder too! It's recommended that you try the katsu with the katsu sauce also, not just with the white curry.

I love their handmade signs, it really adds a personal touch to the whole dining experience.

1. Volcano White Curry Ramen Set ($16.80) / Ala-Carte $13.80 - The set consist of 1 Ramen, 1 Truffle Chawanmushi and 1 bowl of clam soup(refillable). The white curry is mixed with bonito broth, topped with iberico pork slices, onsen egg, onions, seaweed and korean spices. The truffle chawanmushi is to die for too!

OMG I tell you, I love the soup base, it has a slight sweetness to it which made it really palatable. And of course it is called the Volcano Ramen hence you see the pile of Korean spice chilli sitting on top of the Iberico Pork Belly Slices. Mix it up to get that spicy kick! Please adjust it to your own tolerance level ok?

2. Iberiko Loin Katsu with Rice Set - ($19.80), Ala-Carte ($16.80), Iberiko pork is also know as Spain Black Pork, famous for it's true pork taste with 1-2 cm of fats surrounding its red meat. The katsu has a nice bite and the coated breadcrumbs were not too oily. Each set comes with truffle chawanmushi and clam soup which is refillable! I love it because it is light and clear. I could not stop drinking it and it is AMAZING!

 The white curry tastes different from the usual brown curry as it has a slight sweet taste to it and it goes really well with the iberico pork katsu which was deliciously fried to a golden brown. Dip it with the mildly spicy white curry for a wonderful match. Alternatively, you may choose to pair it with the tonkatsu sauce that is available on the table too!

Overall I would totally recommend you to try the first and only White Curry Restaurant in Singapore!
