Having conquered the
worlds of music and
fashion, "A Bathing
Ape" founder Nigo
has turned his at-
tention to curry
rice. The small
Curry Up shop on the
northern edge of
Harajuku was de-
signed by Wonderwall
and reportedly named
by hiphop producer
Pharrell Williams.
The look is simple
but stylish - a
white concrete
storefront with a
yellow neon sign,
and lots of stain-
less steel and con-
crete on the interi-
or. The modern style
is tempered by sub-
tly kitsch elements
like the faux-wood-
grained table and
counter tops, old-
fashioned white
curtains in the
window, and the
gold-bordered shop
logo with a smiling,
mustachioed chef.

The music is old-
school, mainstream
reggae - we enjoyed
both "You Don't Love
Me (No No No)" by
Dawn Penn and "One
Love" by Bob Marley
during our first ten
minutes in the shop.
The high point of
our meal (from a
design point of
view) was the little
dish of pickles that
came with our curry.
They've taken the
vivid pink, green
and white curry-shop
standard pickle
assortment, diced
everything up very
fine and mixed it
all together in a
pretty, bright swirl
of colors.
