Japanese Curry in NYC: Go! Go! Curry!

January 31, 2014

Fancy for some Japanese curry? Then you must try Go! Go! Curryin NYC.

In fact, not many Japanese restaurants in NYC are selling curry on their menu despite it being one of the popular dishes (and comfort food) in Japan. Introduced by the British between 1800s and 1900s, Japanese curry has a thicker texture and sometimes sweeter than regular Indian curry. It's often served with stew vegetables and different meats over white rice. Other variants including curry udon noodles and curry pan (bread) are also popular and convenient to buy in Japan.

Being one of the few places that specializes in Japanese curry, Go Go Curry was opened in 2007 at Midtown/Time Square. It's a relative small store, with only 6-7 seats at the bar available and 4 tiny tables near the window.

The store is famous for its thick, gravy-like curry sauce, in which it stated taking "55 process, 55 minutes to stew and 55 hour to mature to serve." All curry is served on a metal plate with thinly sliced cabbage as a  side and your desired fried protein laying on top of rice. It offers Chicken Katsu, Pork Katsu, Shrimp Tempura (2 pieces), and Sausage (3 pieces) as your protein choice. Additional add-ons are also available in the $2 budget, which includes boiled egg, cheese, and other fried meats.

Go Go's fried chicken and pork is never disappointing: crispy and juicy inside! However, it could be a little greasy for some people.
