Awesome In A Jar


You know I love mutton. And naturally, I love lamb too. Lamb curry? Oh yes! Can curried lamb in a jar taste good?

I have eaten canned chicken/beef curry. Sorry, I hate it. I will never eat canned curry ever. But curried lamb in a jar?

I admit I was skeptical but this comes from the people from Five & Two Foods (non-halal) and having tasted their Bacon Jam & Angry Bacon,  I went ahead and ordered a bottle.

And by the way, if you want to a review on their bacon jam and candied bacon, you can check out Kris' post.


This little jar cost me RM20.00 (180g). I may be stingy, but when it comes to good food, I am willing to spend.


The nutritional information indicates 12 servings per jar. What? Twelve? No, no. It is only good for 2 small servings as far as I am concerned.

Since the curry is free from preservatives, I kept it in the fridge even before opening the jar.


This is how it looks like.


I scooped some out and heated the curry in the microwave. It smelled wonderful.

Gosh. The taste. Spicy. Aromatic. Complex. Unique. I was in love. Perhaps a little addicted.


Suffice to say, I had to have more. I know, at RM20.00 per bottle, this has got to be a once in a blue moon treat for me. 

But considering the fact that I am still wearing clothes, shoes and carrying a handbag from 3-4 years ago, I think I deserve to pamper myself 😜

  3. Will you be writing a review on Bacon Jam & Angry Bacon soon? I think the curried lamb at RM20.00 per 180g is still better priced than those expensive bak kwa sliced meat so you definitely can afford to eat more of this. I am not that interested in their pork products but this curried lamb, I am seriously considering ordering it to try.

  4. I was wondering when you'll write a post on this. Yes, I totally agree...this is awesomeness in a jar...especially the bacon jam! Nothing like those cheap canned curries, that's why we pay a premium price for it and I'm so glad you loved it :) Since you like this curried lamb so much, I think you'd enjoy the curried pork too. It's probably made with almost similar Indian spices which I find a bit too overpowering for my taste buds (especially one spice which I don't know what it is since I don't cook curries and I'm not as familiar with Indian spices as you). That's why those who enjoy Indian curries (which I'm not really a fan of) will love their products very much. As to their claim of 12 servings, I'm with you...what 12 servings? More like 12 teaspoons...wakakakaka! :D

    Oh, so you tried their Angry Bacon (and not their Candied Bacon). I wonder how that taste like...would you be writing another post on that? If you do reorder (in a blue moon), I urge you to get the candied bacon. I find that it taste even better when microwaved for a few seconds....mmmmm! ;)

    1. I have tried the candied bacon which I think is awesome especially the Bahia flavored one. But I find it too sweet. I mean, it is after all candied bacon, so it's supposed to be sweet. The Angry Bacon I absolutely love and I ordered another bottle hee..hee... Ya, we'll see, I might write about it.

  5. I heard the couple of AfoRadio. Seems that we can order online and they will send but only within Malaysia. Will check out the website when the time comes - I still have the sambal bacon and the Angry bacon, yet to open those.

  9. Seldom eat mutton but from the way you described, it must be super Good! By the way, I like the Basmathi rice you have there... My friend told me that there is less carbs in this type of rice...

    1. It is super good and I bought more. Yes, basmathi rice is lower in carbs but still have to exercise moderation when eating.

  11. Huh, mutton and lamb not the same meh? I always thought they are the same. Yes I seldom spend on clothes and bags but food I am never stingy as good food makes people happy.

    By the way, I like the packaging of the jar.
