Story & Recommendation
Curry with many ingredients, unlimited taste options and the fragrance of spices
Mujara is a restaurant specializing in the Japanese curry genre of “spice curry,” and it started operating in July 2016. The chef says that he started this restaurant because curry was his hobby and that he decides the menu of the day based on the ingredients available. The base of the curry is Indian, but the chef makes his original spice curry version of it. He prepares the spices every morning and they entwine with the vividly colored ingredients. This makes the curry taste different; magical. The psychedelic interior of the restaurant is done by the chef. You can feel the uniqueness in both the taste of the curry and in what the restaurant looks like. Shijo Omiya Station is close to Mujara. From this station, you can go places in west Kyoto like Arashiyama and Sagano. I recommend this for lunch before you go sightseeing. On Friday they are open from the night. Besides their curry, they also have “spice menu” served at night that goes well with alcoholic beverages. Good not only for lunch, but also for drinking at night.

Pork Belly Curry / ¥1,050
The unique part about this curry is the kiwi sauce, and the combination of the sweetness of the pork belly and the acidity of the kiwi sauce is nice. The taste is simpler than the looks, and the curry goes well with the sides it’s served with.

Three types of curry / ¥1,400
The curry changes daily, and on the day this photo was shot, the curries were, from the right, pork belly, chicken, and bean curry. The sides are pickles, salad, and sautéed vegetables – you get a lot of veggies. You can eat it as is, or mix them. The rice is a mix of white Japanese and basmati rice. The long-grained basmati rice and the thick curry go well exceptionally well.
How to Order

Mujara menu

The menu on the blackboard is only in Japanese, but they have a simple English menu, so you won’t have to feel vexed when ordering. They have three or four types of curry available daily, and you can choose to have up to three types at once. 

- Order Tips -
They are open until 9 pm, but as the restaurant is popular, they may close early if they sell out. 

If you want to adjust the spiciness of the curry, tell the staff about the level of spiciness you want when ordering.
