Stewed chicken curry with cheese and ripe tomato
Stewed chicken curry with cheese and ripe tomato / ¥823
Stewed chicken curry is one of the popular menus in CoCo Ichibanya. The most beloved topping, cheese, adds mild taste and ripe tomatoes bring fresh aftertaste. The more cheese melts, the more flavor you can enjoy. This curry is light, so you may entertain yourself by adding more toppings or by making it hotter.
Cuttlefish curry with scrambled egg

In CoCo Ichibanya, you can choose toppings as you like. Here, you may think that scrambled egg does not go along with curry. However, that is not true. The egg adds creamy flavor and even more fullness, which surely fills you up. With fried cuttlefish, you can enjoy the crispy texture and also its outstanding amusing look. If you are getting tired of normal standard curry, here is the one that you should try!
Curry with stewed beef gristle (Gyu-suji Nikomi Curry)

Curry with stewed beef gristle (Gyu-suji Nikomi Curry) / ¥832
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.
Vegetarian curry with spinach
4Let's Try!
Vegetarian curry with spinach / ¥689
Vegetarian curry in Coco-ichibanya does not contain any animal-derived ingredients.
