Jumbo curry

Jumbo curry

Yesterday, I went to curry restaurant that reently opened.

They are dealing discunting curry fair for 1 month from their opening day, I knew it via TV.

The above photo is most expensive curry at the restaurant and costs 1500yen($12) usually, but we can eat it as 1000yen for now.

It contains 500g of steamed rice(too much for Japanese), 2 tonkatsu,2 sausage, 1 egg and 1 shrimp fry.

I ordered it and the staff brought it, and I said "Hey it is absolutely too much for me! Are they kidding me?" but, when I saw a man at the back of my table, he is eating curry same mine. So I realize it and begun eating.

Since leaving foods that YOU are the one order is rude in Japan, I ate it all of them. So I had heatburn all day long yesterday :(

Next time I go there, I will try smaller size. But unless the problem about ampount of rice, I don't think the curry totally better than other restaurant.

I recommend you to go to Indian restarant if you will come to Matsuyama city :p

Wow, that portion is pretty big. People in Japan don't take their leftovers home?

Hi 西瓜男さん
Yes I'm pretty sure that it was over 1kg. I thought they must be kidding :)

Taro said...

Yes It was too big for Japanese. I usually eat quarter of the aount of it in other curry restaurant and it make me full. I am wondering why I could eat 1kg :p

Taro said...

Ameracans do that?? Yes, Japanese bring back their remaining dishes(is it leftover in English?) to home. But I have policy that I eat all of dish that I ordered. I thought it is bigger than usual curry and can be too much for me but ordered because of the fair :D I regret...
