Don’t underestimate the power of advertisement. I had been hearing that Blu Ginger was doing $10 lunch specials in the radio to celebrate their 12th Anniversary. One day (even though I had a packed lunch) something snapped and I suddenly had an irrational need for naan, so I grabbed a friend and off we went.
There were a variety of $10.00 specials, some banquets and a little bit more expensive express lunches.
We both chose the same, a ‘Just for me curry express' with desi chicken as the chicken curry of the day (I was under the impression you could choose the chicken curry otherwise I would have had butter chicken) served with a fresh salad, rice, papadums, garlic naan and complimentary sweet corn pumpkin soup ($10.00).
Turns out the complimentary soup was really tomato soup, it was still very tasty served nice and hot with really crispy croutons.
Don’t be fooled by the photo, the bowl was only this big (using cutlery for scale).
The desi chicken is a home style chicken curry made with chef’s own recipe. It was a lovely curry with a nice spicy chilli kick to it, I could eat it with lots of rice and naan and my chilli tolerance is pretty low.
Four pieces of nice hot garlic naan each.
With the promise of being served within 10minutes of seating, we were in and out just under an hour which is pretty good considering that includes my slow eating habits. Every time I go, the staff have always been really friendly.
Hurry this $10.00 lunch special is only on for the month of July.
