A branch of one of Sapporo's most popular purveyors of soup curry, Cocoro is known for their flavorful tomato-basil soup base and their optional brown rice to accompany your curry. Among the dozen or so curry variations are a few unusual ones - there's a super-spicy habanero-pepper curry and a "spice curry" with three types of cheese.
Our lamb and vegetable curry contained several slices of pleasantly gamey lamb, balanced by a soup that was a bit lighter than expected. Vegetables included crisp bell pepper, a couple of green beans, ample amounts of cabbage, and a boiled potato with the skin still on. You can select a spiciness level anywhere from zero to one hundred, although we'd recommend starting on the lower end of the scale.
Cocoro's utilitarian dining room is pleasant enough - this branch is located on the restaurant floor of Yodobashi Camera, a multi-story electronics shop. The background music, with competing sources of music coming from different speakers, can be annoying, however, so bring headphones if you can. Curries start at around Y1000.
