Good for Fans
Hideaway shops and spots of worthwhile destination. Recommended if you are keen on these genres.
For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
I have tried curry with cheese filled hamburger by regular spice level. I enjoyed the milder taste of curry by mixing cheese hamburger and a bit spicy curry. I recommend that you put "shichimi", a blend of seven spices and "fukujinzuke", the sliced vegetables pickled in soy sauce, to your curry. You may enjoy the different flavor of curry!
It is clean and light inside of the restaurant. Spending time as you read Manga, the Japanese comic books, would be good. But it is better not to stay too long if it’s too crowded.
Curry with stewed beef gristle
1Must Eat !
Curry with stewed beef gristle (Gyu-suji Nikomi Curry) / ¥802
Stewed beef gristle is very soft and best matches with leek which makes this curry more fresh. There also is a devil's tongue/konjac in the curry roux, so you may enjoy its chewy texture mixing with rice. We recommend that you put "Fukujinzuke", the sliced vegetables pickled in soy sauce, on top of the curry which is set on each table. It is crispy and gives more flavor to the curry.
2Must Eat !
Vegetarian curry with spinach / ¥706
Vegetarian curry in Coco-ichibanya does not contain any animal-derived ingredients. You can order it without any toppings but we recommend that you add spinach topping which gives a fresher flavor to your curry. You can choose the level of spiciness and sweetness in the same manner as other curries. You may enjoy this vegetarian curry without any concern for the ingredients inside!
Fried calamari salad
3Let's Try !
Fried calamari salad (Cuttlefish salad) / ¥391
You may be fond of the flavor and taste of fried calamari with green salad. Among 3 types of dressings, our recommendation is a sesame dressing as it best matches with both salad and calamari.
Mango Milk Lassie
4Let's Try !
Mango Milk Lassie / ¥206
This mango milk lassie has a think and rick taste that makes the spicy curry milder. We suggest that you order it when you eat very spicy curry.
