You can choose from several types of soup at this popular Hokkaido soup-curry specialist, including bouillon-based "black soup", soy-based "white soup" and tomato-based "red soup." Chicken, pork, minced pork, Hamburg steak, bacon, bacon-cabbage, vegetable, and duck are some of the main options for curry ingredients.

The tomato-based soup incorporates some distinctive fresh herbs and spices, and it really brings out the flavor of the flash-fried vegetables, in particular the big chunks of tender burdock root. The regular pork version comes with hunks of tasty stewed pork, not quite the kakuni style that's typical of this dish but still tender and meaty.

As usual there's a wide assortment of optional add-on toppings available for a small surcharge. Soup curries start at under Y1,000 a bowl, and there are lunch specials served until 1:30pm.

Shinjuku-ku, Shinjuku 3-31-1, Daishin #2 Bldg B1F.
