Katsu curry in Korea

Katsu curry – Restaurant name: Honkki (혼끼) – Gwangju, South Korea

I’ve mentioned before how much I love katsu and curry. I frequently make one or the other, but I’ve never combined them. Today’s photo may be the last time I’ve ever had them together, and this was taken over seven years ago.

This was my breakfast on my second day in Busan. I think I was in the basement of the Lotte Department Store.

Even though we had a CoCo Ichi near us when we lived in Tokyo in 2009 and 2010, I never tried the place until I went back in 2013 (pictured above).

I love katsu (カツ). I love curry (カレー). Someone put them together once upon a time as katsu curry.

Someone thought that adding meatloaf (ミートローフ) and cheese (チーズ) to this combination would also be a good idea (below). I passed on that concept.

Right next to Waseda University is an Indian Restaurant that I frequented about once a week. If I arrived before a certain time (11 a.m. I think) they had some great deals. Since my class ended a half hour before the time cutoff I’d arrive for the special, which was just a few hundred yen and consisted of a few curries, rice, naan, and an egg. Seeing this photo again I can almost taste my old usual order.

Curry Udon (カレーうどん)

On a cold, rainy day, there is nothing better than a bowl of curry udon. This particular bowl was probably the best one I’ve ever had. I don’t remember the name of the place, but it was just outside of the Shinkiba Station in Tokyo. Nothing fancy–just your typical chain that can miss as often as be a hit.

By the time you read this I hope to be elbow deep in Thai Curry in Bangkok, Thailand.

Today’s picture is actually of some Indian Curry we enjoyed in Ueno a couple weeks ago. I don’t remember any restaurants selling Indian Curry in Japan back in the 1980s. Now they are everywhere. We had some really good Indian Curry in Hakuba, but the best curry we have had in Japan so far has been Thai Curry near our apartment. There is some Viking (meaning all-you-can eat) Thai Curry near Takadaonbaba Station that is also quite good for the price.
