Japanese curry is probably one of the more affordable meals you can have in Japan. It’s also tasty. It has a much milder flavor than the usual curry. As with a lot of things, curry is a foreign import by the British which the Japanese made their own version of. It is recognizable by its thick dark brown sauce usually served over rice.
We passed by this particular store in the Shin-Osaka station a few times. We decided to have an early lunch here before going to Osaka Castle.
Usually the Japanese would tell the person inside what they wanted but since we didn’t speak Japanese, we just pointed at the picture and told the guy what we wanted. They gave us water and there was unlimited condiments of pickled veggies on the side.
They actually give you a receipt when they give you your order at a thing like on most Japanese restaurants – usually it’s an object with a lid. You take this paper at the cashier and pay for your food.
