Quality Seasonal Spicy Curry Made from Kyoto Grown Ingredients
Tucked away in an alleyway amongst the office buildings of Kyoto's Karasuma area lies CURRY PLANT―curry specialist and project of Kyoto's famous luxury Italian restaurant ORTO.
CURRY PLANT always has three types of curry on offer. Their standard is the “Kyogamo Curry”, and the other two change seasonally, so you can enjoy the seasonal flavors.
They also have a range of alcohol to go with their curries, that when enjoyed together, work to bring out the fragrant aromas of the spice from the curry.
Also, they don’t only do curry; they also have a fantastic line up of sides, like eggs, pickled seasonal vegetables and handmade sausages from Kitayama Kawakitaya! All the sides can be enjoyed with the curry and wine.
CURRY PLANT is in the middle of a quiet street, and its cool exterior stands out.
On the first floor, there are window and counter seats, and on the second floor there are tables.
Living up to the name “PLANT”, the interior is green and decorated with cute flowers that sit top of the tables, making for a nice and cosy green space.

Aigake Curry (Additional Topping)
/ ￥1,200 (W/ Tax)
“Aigake” is a “two type curry”, meaning you can simply choose 2 types of curry from the 3 available. Left is a seasonal vegetable, tomato curry. They’ve topped the slightly spicy tomato and seasonal vegetable base with cheese, which mellows out the spice and gives the curry a smooth texture. Right is a venison and burdock curry. The Kyoto Miyama bred venison is carefully stewed in red wine. The burdock, with its characteristic texture and unique flavor, really draws the spice out of the curry the more you eat of it. For the rice, they’ve used turmeric rice.
