joto curry

jotocurry (2) Tokumasa is well-known in Osaka for their curry udon.

I was looking at their website recently and noticed that they also have shops that just serve curry and rice.

Saturday's lunch was at Joto Curry. Joto means superior, first class.

The shop we tried in Whity Umeda only has counter seats.

Buy your meal ticket at the door, hand it over, then sit wherever you like.

Satoshi tried their potato curry. This was their curry with french fries (and a little bit of veggies) on it.

jotocurry I tried their curry with aspara maki (asparagus rolls).

The asparagus is wrapped with a thin slice of pork then fried.

Because we already liked their curry served as curry udon, on rice is just as nice.

The pickles on the side tasted just like Japanese cole slaw.

We'll be back.
