Singapore's famous Japanese curry restaurant launches international expansion by opening a Jakarta outlet.


Japanese curry lovers, rejoice! Monster Curry, the leading Japanese curry chain in Singapore, is making its international debut with the opening of its first branch in Indonesia together with Indonesia’s conglomerate – PT Marindo Boga (Gyu Kaku and Joe and Dough).

Monster Curry itself has 17 outlets in total, including Monster Planet the halal version of Monster Curry, (11 outlets Monster Curry, 6 outlets Monster Planet). The first international branch of Monster Curry will be having its grand opening at Grand Indonesia Shopping Mall in Central Jakarta on October 19, 2023.

Monster Curry is Singapore’s great destination for indulging in Japanese demi-glace curry, meticulously crafted from a medley of 14 distinct vegetables and aromatic spices. Renowned across the city-state, this restaurant has gained fame for its generously portioned curries offered at unbeatable prices, presented on iconic 35 and 41-centimeter plates brimming with velvety, fragrant curry. The curry sauce boasts a one-of-a-kind, sumptuous flavor, painstakingly achieved through an extensive two-day cooking process.

Started with humble beginnings in 2012, Monster Curry’s first official outlet was in ION Orchard. Since then, Monster Curry has expanded to 11 outlets island-wide. The origin of Monster Curry holds a special place in the heart of Raymond Ng, the Managing Director and Founder of the establishment. It all began with a deep longing for the Japanese curry rice he cherished from his childhood in Japan. He then decided to create this brand, tweaked slightly to the local tastes. The brand went through countless rounds of Research & Development and taste tests before deciding on using 14 different vegetables and spices, cooked over 2 days. Monster Curry presents a compelling array of signature dishes, among them the Monster Curry Combo, a comforting combination featuring chicken katsu, beef shabu-shabu, shrimp tempura, and fried fish, generously crowned with cheese and curry—a sharing-portion masterpiece perfect for a trio of diners. Those seeking single-portion delights will find an irresistible selection, such as the Signature Jumbo Chicken Katsu Curry.

For ramen fans, Monster Curry satisfies with its Chicken Katsu & Curry Ramen Set that includes a combination of curry ramen with jumbo chicken cutlet (200 g). There are also many other curry ramen options.

And for Monster Curry’s Jakarta outlet, an exclusive treat awaits: the Signature Beef Stew Curry, guaranteed to tantalize the taste buds of their esteemed guest with tender beef cubes, potatoes and carrots, all served on a bed of Japanese curry rice. Aside from their curries, Monster Curry also has an extensive menu including Salads, Wafu Pastas, Monster Burgers, Honey Toasts and drinks. Interestingly, at Monster Curry, customers can customize the spicy level of the curry using the Flaming Hearts icon for the extra kick. The homemade hot sauce is crafted
from ingredients like chili padi, ginger, garlic and a dash of secret elements. With its diverse menu and vibrant atmosphere, Monster Curry creates the ideal dining experience for teenagers, young adults, and families alike to savor the finest curry offerings.To celebrate the grand opening, Monster Curry will be giving out free Tori Karaage with every main course ordered on the 19-31 October (weekdays only) with every combo curry ordered.
