botani curry

I recently tried Botani Curry.

It is a teeny shop and they are only open for lunch.

I went with their Botani Curry, a chicken based curry with 3 types of keema...900 yen (with tax).

You can have them adjust the spiciness but I left it as is.

You can also add toppings, but I didn't.

The curry comes with lots of different pickles. Which was nice.

There was chicken, minced beef/pork and I think tuna for the different types of keemas.

It was a nice spiciness, not "burn your mouth off". There was just enough rice to finish the dish too.

I was mesmerized by the regulars who would come in and rattle off different orders in some kind of code.

I was also surprised at the amount of men that were eating here compared to women.

They also have a shrimp curry (coconut milk based) and a chicken curry (also coconut milk based).

I think the next time I come here, I'll try a different curry and some of the add-on toppings.

I'll be back.

Interesting about the different pickles being served with this. They also plate up kind of fancy too!
