In order to make it match with Japanese soba, the curry also comes in Japanese style. Can you tell what kind of dashi is used?’

Alright – it’s curry time – let’s hit it!

An interesting mix!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added scallions and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles definitely were off-putting to me. They have a almost clay-like chew to them that I just don’t like. The broth had a salty curry flavor to it, then the inclusions really just seemed like a kitsune udon’s provisions. Just not my thing. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901990335669.
