This is the view of Jessie’s I see every day.
I’ve been living in the area for just over a year now, and I only just made it to Jessie’s Curry Kitchen on Thursday. I know realise the error of my ways. To be honest, I’m completely annoyed. Because I’ve been missing out for so long.
Meat samosas | $8.50 for five
We started with a serve of super-hot and super-crispy meat samosas – filled with (what I think was leftover) meat curry, these were the perfect introduction to the food on offer. It’s simple home-style food at its best – not that dissimilar to the sort of food my late Grandma would have whipped up for dinner.
Innards shot – note the big chunk of meat. My Mum would be impressed by the chunky meat filling!
Small curry combination – lamb | $11
J and I both decided to go with the small combination sets – which come with one meat curry, one veggie curry, dhal, rice and a pappadum. This evening we had the choice of lamb or chicken, so we went with one of each…
Small curry combination – chicken | $11
The chicken and lamb curry were both richly flavoured, and tasted just like home made. But my personal favourite of all the curries on my plate was the dhal – which was light, yet flavoursome, and included deliciously soft pieces of cauliflower in the mix. I would have happily eaten dhal and rice if I had known how much I would enjoy it! The eggplant was also a highlight – the eggplant chunks were simmered until soft and sweet, and were perfect when mixed with the rice.
I’m really glad we finally made it to Jessie’s – the weekend specials (like Nasi Lemak and Idyappum/String Hoppers) are really appealing. We’ll definitely be back soon – though I have a feeling I’ll be struggling to choose…
