Resturant review of Coco Ichibanya (repost from old blog December 07, 2009)

I love Curry, maybe more than Dave Lister, so when I want some immediate spicy gratification, I trot down to the closest CoCo Ichibanya.

Coco Ichibanya, a Japanese curry house chain restaurant

Coco Ichibanya is a Japanese fast food curry house that is quick, easy, and delicious. They are located all around Japan. There are two located in Yokosuka city alone. Like any chain restaurant, they all have a similar feel.Coco Ichibanya has more than just curry rice; also available is nan bread, curry pan, salad, and dessert.

Counter seats are for the sad lonely guys, great for me!

But it’s not all cookie cutter, they do have local specials and seasonal menus. Coco Ichibanya is very foreigner friendly.  The foreigner menu has seven languages.

I can read that!

Ok, this is how it works,-

1: Pick your curry base: Beef, Pork, Hash

2: Pick your topping: There is a wide variety of toppings, from cheese to fried quall eggs, order as many as you want

3: Select the amount of rice: From 200 grams to 600

4: And my favorite, Spice level: From mild to 10

Not that hot...

The face let's you know how your bum will feel later.

This particular trip was my first time playing with level 10. I ordered a half plate of shrimp curry.

Half-plate of ebi curry. level 10

The rice is your typical Japanese sticky rice, good and hearty. The curry is flavorful and tasty, an instant classic.

Yum

That level ten was hot, but it was no match to a curry junky like me, well played, curry, well played.

Done!

If you want to take the experience home with you, you can get take out, delivery, or the Coco Ichibanya ready to make ingredients.

Too bad I don't cook...

Overall, Cocos is not the best, but it is still good, not to mention quick and easy. Keep spicy!
