I visited Yukimasa (幸正) that is a soup curry shop located in Shimbashi on Saturday. They are renovated Japanese wooden house and cozy restaurant. It seems bar, not curry shop.
They are open throughout business hour on Saturdays. They are precious because there are not many restaurants that are open on Saturdays, and they are open throughout the business hour.
It’s not so far from Shimbashi station, but it is located at the back of the street. The street is calm and the appearance of Yukimasa isn’t outstanding It’s a hard to find a bit.
It’s very small restaurant, they have about 5 seats in total. You’d better visit there alone or with someone in the daytime. They accept reservation at dinner time, so if you want to visit there with some people, dinner time is better. Lattice window is cool.
This is the lunch menu. It is available until 3 p.m. Of course, on Saturdays, too. But we can’t choose the degree of spiciness. There’re four types of curry. Beef, pork, plain and yellowtail.
Yummy foods that I had
I ordered beef curry (ビーフ, 1300 yen) that is their most popular curry. No.1.
One curry have one soup during lunchtime.
This is beef curry. Do you find two-storied rice ? Turmeric rice is at the bottom, and tomatoes rice on it. And simmered beef with red wine is put on the rice.The beef was soft. The soup curry had broth of beef tail. Much extracts of beef broth and spice.
But I wanted more curry soup…
I ordered it with broccoli and チェダー (ブロッコリー＆チェダー, 300 yen). But the chef forgot to put it before serving, so, she served it separately. I tried to dish up beautifully like tower of Babel, but I gave up. It’s difficult for me.
Potatoes and pickles set
We can add potatoes and pickles set (ポテト＆ピクルスセット) with extra 200 yen. 3-colored mashed potatoes is beautiful.
This colors are from potatoes’ variety. Purple (Blue from its photo) is Shadow queen, pink is Northern ruby and white is May queen. So, everything tasted simple potatoes. Smooth mashed potatoes. Pickles had refreshing tastes.
