I went to Curry no Toriko (カレーノトリコ) in Akihabara area. Their curry is novel.
I got to there 10 minutes before the opening time, there were already around 10 people waiting in front of the shop. Fortunately, I could be seated last chair. I was relieved.
The shop have only one L-shaped counter table along the kitchen. Two staffs keep working in hurry and never stop.
Where ? (Current location)
They moved to Kanda area in 2018. But nothing has changed about their novel curry.
They are located between Awajicho station and Kanda station.
This is the menu. So simple. Three curries. Indian curry (インド風カレー), dried curry with beef tendon (牛すじドライカレー) and aigake curry (あいがけカレー). “Aigake” means double. “Aigake curry” is Indian curry and dried curry together on the dish.
Indian curry have one topping chosen from chicken, beef tendon, Indian beans, vegetables and shrimps. And more, you can extra topping with 150 yen.
And the first comer can chose degree of spiciness between 1 and 10 only. I heard that their curry don’t very spicy, so 10 is better if you like spicy foods.
Yummy foods that I had
I ordered Aigake curry (あいがけカレー, 1200 yen). Indian curry was like soup curry. And there were much spices ! I ordered my Indian curry with level 5 of spiciness. So, it wasn’t so spicy, but I wa choked by the spice.
And I chose chicken topping. Chicken is their best recommendation. It was soft and tasty 😉
Dried curry was on the rice. It had natural sweetness of minced meat and mild taste.Also plenty of deep fried onion was good, too.
They say it is “Indian curry”, but it have Japanese soup stocks and it had something Japanese tastes. And much Indian spices. We can’t eat it except this shop. Just Curry no Toriko. Their unique curry.
