This award-winning curry specialist (the name means "Curry is a Drink") offers two specialties - a European-style Pork Black Curry and a more Indian-influenced Chicken Red Curry. Each comes with however much turmeric rice you like (from a small portion to extra-large) and three toppings, with choices like fried onions, mayonnaise-heavy potato salad and soft-boiled eggs.
The black-curry roux is thick and rich, built on a French-style fond de veau base. It's thickened further with Mascarpone, and is served swimming with tender chunks of long-simmered pork and stewed daikon. The red curry is more intensely flavored, with a different spice palette and a rich oniony flavor that's gradually soaked up by the tender chicken meat. Both varieties are chock full of meat and quite filling - excellent value for under Y1,000.
If Okachimachi isn't convenient, Curry wa Nomimono also has branches in Akihabara, Shimbashi, Suidobashi and Ikebukuro.
