In a city enamored with Thai and Indian curries, the Japanese variety gets precious little love. The good folks at this sister establishment of soba specialist Cocoron next door aim to right this wrong with a menu devoted to Sapporo-style yakusen soup curry, infused almost medicinally with “detoxifying” herbs, and the thicker, velvety-­textured roux-style curry with rice. Both are complexly flavored and deceptively filling, especially if you go crazy with add-ons like skewered chicken katsu and poached eggs. And watch for specials like Okinawa taco rice, a Tex-Mex vestige of the ’60s, an era when American servicemen stationed overseas were craving a taste of home.
