We stumbled upon Denraku the other weekend but tried them this past Wednesday.

They serve different teishoku (set meals) as well as Kanazawa curry (which I think is B-kyu gurume).

Satoshi went with the ebi fry (fried shrimp) Kanazawa curry...880 yen.

It comes out on a huge plate with lots of rice, a thin layer of julienned cabbage, spicy curry ladled on top, then fukujinzuke (pickles) and kaiware (radish sprouts) scattered before being topped with the fried shrimp.

He also had two pieces of karaage tucked in there...a nice surprise.

I went with the Kanazawa yaki-curry...780 yen.

A baked version, with grilled chicken topping it.

Super filling! but really good and cheesy.

Satoshi also ordered some Hamamatsu gyoza...300 yen...meh! He said that the moment these were brought out, he knew they were frozen types, nothing to rave about.

This shop is definitely a "manly" place, there were so many construction workers there and all of them smokers too...*ack*

We'll be back, hopefully when no one else is there to smoke us out...

The servings looked enormous...were you guys able to finish everything?

K and S said...

that is the one peeve I have about eating in Japan, Kirk...

they were huge, Rowena, Satoshi ate his meal, the gyoza and the little that I had left...oink oink :)

Take care you two.

K said...

Wow this looks great! The gyoza sounds disappointing though!

K and S said...

If Satoshi says it was junk, K, then it must've been :(

Take care.
