Curry Bondy was the first winner of the Kanda Curry Grand Prix in 2011 and has been a local favourite since. Despite being hard to find on the second floor above a bookstore, this restaurant attracts hungry Tokyoites daily and always has queues during lunch hours. The menu offers a dozen curries, but first timers should go for the popular beef curry (¥1,600) featuring a deep brown roux made with a mixture of spices and fruits.
All curries come with cheese, kappa zuke pickles and umeboshi, with a side of rice and boiled potatoes. You can choose amakuchi (sweet), chukara (medium spicy) or karakuchi (spicy) depending on your preference, and even make it into a large portion for an additional ¥150.
