When I meet my pal Ben for lunch in the City, we wander up from the top end of Kent Street to this little place at the corner of York and Jamison. It has outside seating, has been quite busy both times, and is charming and casual.
It’s tasty, traditional food. I might have had the same thing both times, even if it was over a year apart. I can never go by Japanese curry. It is, as Japanese curry should be, hearty and slightly sweet. They serve it with rice, pickles and a few lettuce leaves, and washed down with some Japanese cold tea was rather nice.
I usually have it with pork tonkatsu (mmm… crispy pork) but decided to be different and have it with chicken karaage, which was tasty enough, though not as beautifully crisp as some other casual Japanese places I’ve been to.
Ben had the salmon teriyaki bento box, and passed no ill comments on it. About $40 for the two of us for lunch, two mains, two drinks. What a nice sunny day it was.
