Japanese curry named Indian curry

A famous Japanese curry chain of Osaka has a branch in TOKIA (トキア) in Marunouchi (丸の内) since eight years ago. The name is "Indian Curry (インディアンカレー)" and its symbol is an Indian man with a white turban and white beard.Maybe more than 60 years ago, when curry was just becoming a national food of Japan, the shop owner used the image of India which is the origin of curry. (But in reality, I think most Indian people don't put turban except Sikhs.)

Curry and rice!
The shop's name is Indian Curry, but they offer Japanese-style curry and rice. The curry uses beef, spices, various vegetables, and fruits. The taste is unique and different from ordinary Japanese curry. Sweet but very hot. The complex harmony can be addictive. We can't experience this specific taste other than here. In spite of this hot flavor, I could eat it up as it is delicious.

A curry and rice costs JPY730. Service is very quick. In few minutes, the meal is served. My rating is 3.5 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
