I found that the shopkeeper said she was going to serve “Mentaiko cheese kulcha” on the twitter. So, I felt like eating it very much, and I asked my friend to there 🙂

This was second visit there.

Appearance, Spice bar Nico (Kiyosumi-Shirakawa)


We ordered “Okami course”(3000 yen) that time, too. The course is chef’s choice. We ate salads, achar, boiled pork, tandoori chicken and gizzard confit. But I didn’t take those pictures because she don’t take pictures when eating at all 😛 So, I took pictures to a minimum.
I don’t take pictures in the restaurant with everybody 😛

So, my first picture was my longing Mentaiko cheese kulcha.

Everything is up to the shopkeeper about our dishes, so also this mentaiko cheese kulcha is not always served us, I think. So, we were happy to eat it 🙂

It is similar to mentaiko spaghetti that I often eat at restaurant and cook for myself. Shredded dried laver and mentaiko in the naan. Popping texture of the mentaiko and the smell of the laver was good 😀

Then curries.

Just before eating curries, I ordered acai lassie.

This was the first time to eat acai, but it was tasty. It was sour a bit but sweet. I’ll going to order acai lassie and awamori together next time 🙂

We choiced four from about eight kinds of curries.

At first, cold curry. It was also my longing goods, just like mentaiko cheese kulcha. I was glad to eat it 🙂

I liked rather eating as soup than eating as curry with rice. Sharp sensation by some spices. Those shrimps were springy !

And three warm curries.

Rasam, Sri Lankan curry, Summer vegetables curry. Everything was good, but I liked rassam best all the same. I like the sourness of tomato. And spicy.
My friend liked Sri Lankan curry best.

Strictly speaking, this bar don’t serve Indian cuisine. Her original foods at all.

I’ll go there again soon. Really looking forward to it !
