Japanese Curry in the East Village…Curry-Ya!

October 25, 2012

This is exciting stuff!!

I had Japanese curry for the first time the other night. I freaked! Went to a place called Curry-Ya

I didn’t know this but curry is actually one of the most popular dishes in Japan. Curry was introduced to Japan by the British, at a time when India was under their administration. Makes sense right?

It was such a fun, intimate and new experience. It is a small restaurant so go with one or two other people. It has a bar and a table..thats it! 

I had no idea what to order, so I asked the waiters and chefs to recommend their faves.

Started with an unfiltered Japanese Beer.

Seaweed Salad

Then we were told to order the Berkshire pork cutlet. Curry-Ya is famous for it. We ordered it in the baked curry version.

In this pot there is a bottom layer of sticky white rice, topped with the Berkshire fried pork cutlet, a nice layer of curry, an egg and a heaping pile of cheddar. They all get baked together, so the cheese was nice and gooey and the egg was still runny. This dish was sinful! I absolutely loved it!

Had to try another curry while I was there and ordered another top hit. Beef dried curry.

A meaty beef curry, slathered on top of sticky white rice with a hard boiled egg and fried onions.

Such a cute spot with insanely delicious food. Enjoy and have fun!
