Curry Ya: East Village, Manhattan, NY, NY, USA
I came here with a few friends about two years ago to grab a quick bite as a group before I left for the Bay. One of the things that drew me to this place was how you can customize your curry. I ordered the shrimp and pork katsu curry but with the baked curry topped with corn and cheese.
– came out piping hot in a little small porcelain dutch oven: this was super cute by the way.
– added cheese: created a nice extra savoriness and richness to the curry
– meat and tempura shrimp was hot and crisp: no sogginess, freshly fried.
Definitely great service, relatively cheap if you don’t count all the extra add-ons. I was super hungry so went for a big order. Flavor was on point for Japanese curry. One of the things that wasn’t the greatest is that it’s a very small seating area and not advisable for large parties – doesn’t quite bode for good conversation if everyone is sitting in a row. The food though is still quite delicious!
