Jinbocho : Bondy and Sabo Brazil

sponsored link

Historic place of curry and kissaten

Jinbocho is popular as a town all kinds of second-hand books gathering, but it is also recognized by people that there are so many good and long-established curry restaurants.

I went to one of the curry restaurant that is named Bondy Jinbocho Honten.
It is close to the station.

It is on the second floor of old building. Old documents and book store is on the first floor.
The main entrance is not for the curry shop. The curry shop’s entrance is along back lane. First comer might be unable to find the entrance with ease.We were, too.

神保町は古書店街で有名ですけど、カレーの街としても有名ですよね。昔からやってるおいしい店が多いです(*^_^*)

I went upstairs, and found the restaurant. And there are so many people waiting. Oh my.
But mostly people don’t take much time to eat their curry up, so we waited for only 15 minutes or so.

After we took seats and ordered our curries, such a balls were served. Steamed whole potatoes with butter.
Two balls per one person.

By the way, we have to share tables at the restaurant.

席につき、注文を済ませるとまずはこんなものがやってきます。名物、その名も、ふかしたじゃがいも!

Curry can be chosen from pork, beef, chicken, cheese, scallop and so on. From 1480 yen.
They might serve oyster curry in winter 🙂
And we can select the level of spiciness from sweet, middle spicy, spicy.
We ordered spicy beef curry (ビーフカレー辛口, 1480 yen) 🙂

We waited our curries with our potatoes.
But our curries were served soon.

注文後結構早くきました。私のビーフカレー。ごはんにはチーズがかかってます。真っ白に見えるかもしれないけど(笑)

cheese was on the rice. Can you see it ? From this picture, the rice looks entirely white 😛
And cucumber and crunchy pickled plum.

As you see, it was rich curry in a gravy pot !

見るからに濃厚なカレー。ってか、あふれてるやん!

It had rather strong sweetness. But also it was spicy and some bigger slices of beefmeat was there. It was soft and juicy 🙂
I like it.

甘みの強いカレーですが、くどい甘さではないし、あとからじわじわ辛さが来るので、おいしいですヽ(´ー`)ノ

After we got out of Bondy, we walked to back of the station and entered the kissaten.

神保町には古書やカレー屋さんだけでなく、古い喫茶店もいっぱいあります!行ってみたいお店がいっぱい!

I forgot to tell you.

Jinbocho is also a town of old kissaten !
Coffee, Sabo Kanda Brazil Coffee (Jinbocho)

狭いカウンターでしたがレトロでとっても雰囲気がよかったです!

Nostalgic atmosphere attracted me though we led to a narrow counter.
A lady ground coffee beans in front of us and the smell was good. Then she made coffee. Seeing her acting is very interesting !

I don’t go to Jinbocho so often and I don’t know about Jinbocho well. But I was really enjoyed a holiday in Jinbocho 🙂
I want to try another curry restaurant around Jinbocho station !
