One bite into this curry chicken at EhHe Art Cafe in JB, and memories of my first taste of curry chicken flooded my mind.

It was a primary school, end of exams party and my classmate's loving mum cooked a pot of curry chicken for us kids. I can't remember the exact taste - just the feeling of joy of first experience with the delightful taste which I remember to this day.

That day was also my first taste of those triangular white bread sandwich with mashed sardine spread and thin cucumber slices inside - but that's a story for another day. (Where can I get these now?)

I really don't know how to describe the flavour and aroma that set it apart - it's something in the blend of mildly sweet, gently spicy hot spices in the santan (coconut milk) laced chicken broth.

I tried this curry chicken twice, on different days. The first time with kueh teow (flat rice noodles) tossed in a savoury oily sauce. The curry chicken was great but the combination didn't really suit my taste buds. (Hence, I didn't blog about this curry chicken earlier.)

The second time, I ate the chicken curry with lightly toasted white bread.

Boomz.

(Borrowing that explosive phrase from an especially articulate Singapore beauty queen :-D )

Everything came together perfectly when I ate EhHe Art Cafe's curry chicken with toast bread i.e. the old way I know.

Tender, juicy chicken flesh with smooth velvety soft skin on. Aromatic curry in chicken broth thickened with coconut milk - the curry is gently sweet spicy on the tastebuds. The potatoes were perfect too.

I strongly recommend this curry chicken when you are in EhHe Art Cafe.

A bowl of sweet and cold cendol is the perfect complement to spicy curry chicken :-D

Traditional local fare in a comfortable art cafe works well for me.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
