Lunch Plate from Curry Corner Takeaway, Hayward

Melanie Wong | Dec 24, 200503:17 AM     6

Cruising along this stretch of Mission last week, I finally was in Curry Corner's neighborhood at the right time to pick up some lunch. A little before noon, it wasn't open yet, but the proprietress held up five fingers to signal me to return in five minutes. I stepped into the grocery store next door, and soon the owner of that business relayed her message to me that she was open for business.

Early in the day, the choices were limited. No roti, just rice. But no matter, the smells wafting out each pot lid she lifted and I had a little of each. Curry chicken, eggplant and spinach braised in coconut milk, and the skimmed-off brothy part of the pot of dal. Each was well-spiced and I needed the starch and a sugary drink to quell the heat.

This $5 lunch plate was delectable and satisfying. It was also more than I could eat in a sitting.
