Hurry Curry of Tokyo - Seattle

Bringing our Authentic Japanese Curry and modern Japanese comfort food from #SawtelleJapantown to #SouthLakeUnion

Japanese raisu karī or “Rice Curry”, the national dish of Japan, combines the culinary traditions of India, Great Britain, and even France. The British Navy first created a version of curry based on a gravy base or "roux", flavored with spices found in India. This version was introduced to Japan by theBritish Navy in the second half of the nineteenth century, when Meiji-era Japan opened its doors to foreigners and their goods. The Japanese cooks incorporated fruit and other ingredients giving Japanese curry its distinctive flavor balance of sweet and spicy. The Japanese navy incorporated curry into the military diet as effective remedy for beriberi, a disease caused by B-1 deficiency. Upon returning home, the sailors brought with them their passion for curry and a Japanese curry tradition was born.
Our original curry formula was developed 27 years ago in partnership with our founding Japanese chef and our supplier in Japan. To this day the roux base is manufactured to our specifications and shipped to our restaurant, where it is finished fresh on site.
