Pork shabu soup curry, with an additional topping of boiled cabbage.
Very nice! The pork is soft and the vegetables are flesh and in huge chunks.
Chicken soup curry, boiled cabbage topping again.
Beef soup curry. The beef is delicious.
Japanese beef hamburger(very rich beef taste) soup curry. Boiled cabbage comes separately this time.
Vegetable soup curry. Fried chicken thigh.
Pork cutlet soup curry. The pork is not that juicy but it is nicely deep-fried and good enough when eaten with the curry. Soft-cream is pretty normal.
You can choose four levels of spiciness. Level 1 is a little hot and Level 2 is already quite hot for me. Two kinds of soup you can choose: tonkotsu(pork bone) and tebasaki(chicken wings). I like the richer-tasting pork one better. The rice is refillable.
The original restaurant is also in Jimbocho area, which does soup curry at lunch time, and is an izakaya at dinner time. This branch I go is specialised in soup curry only and opens everyday of the week. Very clean inside and no need to share tables. Location is right next to this curry shop which is more popular though.
Soup curry is originated from Hokkaido and is more about the chunky ingredients than the curry itself. The meat and vegetables here are indeed nice, the curry is not bad too. However as evident from the photos, from my first visit to my last, the amount of vegetables seem to have shrunk….still not a bad lunch place.
