I was starving after shinkendo class last week, and popped over to the bakery across the street (Cafe Dulce I think) to see if they had anything to munch on while I walked to my car.
CHICKEN. CURRY. BUN.
It’s the white, fluffy kind of bun, and it’s full of chicken curry. WTF have I been doing with my life up to this point?! I need to learn how to make these.
Bonus: They come in a hilarious little paper wrapper/pocket if you tell the cashier you want to eat them right now because they’re so damn good.
I’m a huge fan on tonkatsu with curry, especially at Misasa in Mitsuwa on the Westside. So good. Santouka used to be my favorite ramen place, but I think that has shifted to places with richer broth, and less dough-y noodles (and better menma), although their chashu remains some of the best out there (if a little fatty).
