If we’re to go by the old adage of ‘we eat with our eyes’, a plate of brown like this Japanese curry rice isn’t going to score very high on the appetising chart. Wait until you taste it though – this thick roux, glopped over a golden piece of deep-fried breaded chicken, is the stuff you bust out on a rainy day. If there’s one thing better than a curry that’s rich and imperceptibly peppery, it’s when it also comes with a mount of perfectly cooked short-grain rice and a side of pickled ginger. And should you dislike chicken, the options at Shokudo run the gamut from deep fried pork loin cutlet to fried prawn. But the deeply satisfying curry – even on its own – will leave you ravenous for more.
