1Must Eat !
Keema curry / ￥1,000
Keema curry is very spicy but juicy ground meat and sweet peppers go well and chopped onions adjust the hot spiciness. You can add cheese on top which would be broiled over a fire. It is unique that this curry comes with sour pickled plum called “umeboshi” on top of it. We noticed that this pickled plum makes this spicy keema curry fresher.
2Must Eat !
Chicken curry / ￥1,100
Although this chicken curry is made of 10 kinds of spices, it is not too spicy but rather mild as coconut milk is blended into this curry sauce. Chicken is very soft and juicy which makes you want to come back to this restaurant repeatedly.
How to Order & EatAll the curries come with pickled vegetables. We suggest that you eat curry with them as they make the spicy curry fresher. Please note that they only serve keema curry on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Beverages such as coffee, coke and beer are available from ￥200- ￥460.
