coco ichibanya

The other week, Satoshi had the day off and we went to Visola. He wanted to see "2012" (I didn't, instead I walked around the mall).

Before the movie, we had lunch at Coco Ichibanya. I believe the last time we ate at Coco Ichibanya was in Hawaii (definitely many moons ago).

I ordered the pork curry topped with spinach and tomato puree.

Satoshi ordered the fried squid soup curry. This came with a really small portion of rice so I gave him some of mine (my plate was half filled with rice!).

There is a container of fukujinzuke (pickles that are usually eaten with curry) and a big pitcher of water.

Most curries can be ordered to your liking of heat, favorite toppings and the amount of rice that you want.

The calorie content of these curries are pretty high, we'll be back from time to time.

K and S said...

I think you and Satoshi would get along well Dennis :)

Thanks Laura :)

Take care everyone!

My son sometimes brings home what looks like those pickles from The Curry House here. They really go well with curry.

I like cheese topping. I think the melting cheese and curry matches perfectly.

K and S said...

I think it is because the pickles are kind of sweet Jalna that they match nicely with spicy curry.

Cheese sounds delicious Emi :)

Take care you two.

This would have been perfect for International Hot & Spicy Day! But now the question is...what did Satoshi think of the movie? I have it on my list to see or rent when it comes out, but if he thought it was junk...

I actually made some buta (pork) kimchee tonight, but the kim chee I used (not my normal brand) didn't have any kick :(
Satoshi loved the movie, he said it was kinda scary but good!

Take care.
