As I declare myself a a Japanese curry fan, I would have to say that Konaya curry soup comes on the first in line. The soup has a very unique flavor. With more or less 22 different ingredients and spices in it, it is boiled for 9 hours until it reaches a thick and creamy consistent. Udon in the soup is cooked but has this al dente like texture - firm and chewy just how I like it. Here you can have curry soup plain with just udon for have options of having different topping such as prawn tempura, cheese, vegetable, tofu etc. For us one topping that catches my curiosity was the curry udon with beef gristle and konjak. As hungry as we were, so we went for the large portion order.

|Slow cooked egg. Though the white is slightly runny but the yolk has texture like the soft boiled one. Very good.|
The curry soup was, as expected, absolutely to die for, smooth, flavorful yet not over powering. Beef & tendon were very tender, almost melt in your mouth. I like to also add an extra half boil egg with it. It might sound strange but try it for yourself. It's pretty good.

We were happy & stomach filled at last.
This is though not "the" place to be. But if you are happen to be around at any location they have in the world, I would recommend you to give it a try.
