Jessie’s Curry Kitchen

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…

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…

    Juji, that place has been a firm favourite of mine for a few years. Next time you go, definitely try out a curry puff, they are the best curry puffs around. Also, their roti is great as well, and their mango lassies. Jessie is such a cutie too, and Mr Jessie is the most polite front of house man ever.

      I will definitely try a curry puff next time, but will probably struggle to not compare it to my Mum’s – she makes the best curry puffs around.

      The roti looked awesome – I also saw people eating pooris and was very very jealous!

      I love living a parallel food-life to so many people I know! We have the best neighborhood ever.

      Mr Jessie was so nice – it was impressive just how nice, considering how busy they were when we went. And also considering the table of four oldies getting progressively drunker and more strange!
