Nishi-Ogikubo: Curry

€Data
The specialty at
Spoon is a hearty
"French curry,"
prepared with
European-style fond
de veau stock and a
mix of Indian
spices, and it's one
of the tastiest and
most original Japa-
nese curries in
town. The menu lists
several variations,
the fanciest of
which is a deluxe
Special French Curry
(Y1600) featuring
tender braised beef
tendon, a poached
egg and many differ-
ent vegetables,
along with a meaty
roux served over
brown rice.

The individual vege-
tables in the mix -
stewed daikon, baby
corn, bitter goya -
are each distinctive
and quite delectable
on their own, while
the roux is meaty
and well balanced
with a satisfying
amount of heat. In
the evenings you can
choose from several
wines by the glass
and various side
dishes, and these
are worth exploring.


We enjoyed a summer-
time multi-part
appetizer plate
(Y500) which in-
cluded small dishes
of chilled corn
mousse, creamy
chicken stew and a
garlicky cold tomato
soup, all of which
were excellent. When
combined with the
rather voluminous
special curry this
ends up being a lot
of food, but there
are smaller portion
options if you're
having more than
just curry.

The restaurant has a
simple counter-style
setup, with nicer-
than-average seats
and place settings.
Curries are priced
from Y930 (Y730 for
a two-thirds portion
size), and wines
start at Y590 per
glass or Y390 for a
mini-glass.
