When Only No. 1 Will Do - Victoria Park

Hi everyone! Just want to wish everyone Happy Eater, I mean Easter! Hope everyone is having a great extra long weekend. If you don't get a long weekend, I feel you. I, myself, had to work on Saturday and it was HECTIC. But, now time to let the good times roll... until tomorrow.

So today I'm writing about a place that is totally unassuming, I wouldn't blame you if you've walked past it and thought it wasn't even a restaurant. The place I'm talking about is Perth No. 1 Chicken Curry Bread. The name is a mouthful, but just wait until you get a mouthful of their food.

Mr. T and I have visited this place numerous times and Mr. T's favourite dish of theirs is their Mamak mee goreng. This mamak mee goreng is delicious! It's perfectly saucy and perfectly charred so it has an amazing smoky aroma. The sauce is the perfect spiciness, although you can request to your taste. They're also generous with their topping! Some mamak noodles tend to be too tomatoey or too spicy, but this one is just right. It smells amazing and tastes amazing too.

My favourite dish at this restaurant is the Moonlight Fried Kwey Teow. So I didn't try this dish until our third visit here, I usually stuck with their Mamak Mee Goreng. That's because mum and Mr. T always turn me off eating raw eggs. But, one day I was feeling rebellious and you know what, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. So I ordered it and fell in love. Again, this dish has a smokey aroma and tastes amazing! The egg gives it a creamy texture and the topping includes chunks of tasty braised pork belly! Now I have to warn you, you don't always get the pork belly, when you do, you know it's your lucky day! 

As the name of the restaurant is Perth No. 1 Chicken Curry Bread, of course we had to try the chicken curry bread too! When it was served it was a bit of a visual marvel. This dish is humongous and it makes you wonder what's brewing inside all this bread. Now, to be honest, I wouldn't rate this dish too highly, sorry for the anti-climax. The curry was too watery and it tasted just okay. The chicken was cut in a haphazard way, it makes it difficult to completely clean the bone. The bread was also a bit tough.

So, yes we didn't love the curry bread and never ordered it again. We have also tried a few of their main dishes and were not wowed, but we really enjoy their noodle dishes and have stuck exclusively to those every time we visit!

If you do go try the food here, let us know if you like it!
