My personal highlight: Understanding that Japanese Curry is a real traditional food cooked at home, it brings the family together at one table
I am glad I found this cute little Japanese Takeaway in Zurich. It is located at Stauffacherstrasse 101 very close to Langstrasse. The place is a real Japanese bijou. Stepping inside the typical fancy Japanese Design stands out. Their charactere named “putput” is a cute chick in the manga style. You can admire it all around the shop. There are fancy putput objects as home made mugs or bags to purchase, too.
The owner Nao Shirato explains to me, that the food they serve is inspired by the recipes of her grandmother. That’s Japanese cuisine her family used to eat at home.
The curry base is a home made paste. Its taste is not comparable to a spicy Indian curry with coconut milk. I found this curry mild, thicker in the consistency. The Potato inside where fingerlicking, a real value to my curry experience.
The choice of menu is simple. Different menus are available for vegetarians and non.
Try the super tasty home made Japanese Curry (veggie or chicken), the Gyudon bowl with beef, the Onigri (rice sandwich with meat, fish or veggie) or different buns filled with veggies, meat or azuki (sweet beans). The home made ice tea is recommendable, too.
The miso soup tastes very authentic and comes with the main dish if you like. Choose the salad instead if this doesn’t match your choice.
Menu are available for 11.5o – 15.50 CHF. Get a bun for 6 CHF, Gyudon 13.50-15.50 CHF, Onigiri 5.50 CHF
