Irish Curry

At lunchtime today we went out for Irish curry. Sounds like a joke, right? But it’s real. Since 2008.

If you like Irish pubs, and you like curry restaurants, you will love Irish Curry. You can eat in or take away.

At Happy Hour (5 to 7 p.m.) all beer is 200 yen off. Which means a pint of Guinness costs “only” 800 yen.

We went inside and ate at the counter. Here’s the menu:

Even if you can’t read Japanese, you will notice that “Guinness Beer” features in the menu descriptions.

All three of us ordered sasami curry (chicken breast fillets) which may or may not have involved Guinness Beer. It was delicious; the chicken was tender and the breadcrumb coating was crisp.

They even serve it with some cabbage leaves to make me feel at home!

  1. Fantastic blog. Yes they have an Irish Curry place just like this in Tamachi, Tokyo – I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. It is hawker-style and popular with the salarymen… curious!

  2. Irish-ish! Yes we tried it out one time, its a bit outside the usual lunchtime route, couldn’t quite figure out the Irish connection though as have never seen this kind of curry back home?! I have spent little time in Osaka, I must say I am envious of you – there is a slightly less manic pace to life there!
