Rice Workshop, Melbourne
For a cheap and fast Japanese-inspired bite, it’s hard to go past Rice Workshop and the consistency across their stores is pretty good. At the Emporium-based store, at the food court level, I went with the chicken karage curry option on udon noodles. Udon makes for a nice change up on a curry dish and I don’t believe they offered that previously.
This time the order took a tingle longer than normal, but overall a fulfilling bowl of food goodness and as always, appreciate the help-yourself pickles and ginger on offer. I would say the curry here isn’t as good as others and tasted a bit bland and manufactured. Lacked a bit of the essence of character that a great curry sauce should have. Chicken was fine if not slightly overdone and noodles were done well. Great value for what you get.
