They still remembered me! It’s been along time no see since 2 years ago. And nothing changes their taste and welcoming even so many restaurants are changed in nearby.
And still many people keep coming even early lunch time 11:00am.

Always happy to take a lunch here when I was working in Jimbocho. Can feel the whole heart of owner through to the dishes.
I’m really missing them after move to Hokkaido. 👍

There closing time is not fixed.
Shop close when Materials gone. Normally, open 12:00- and close 15:00 ~16:00.


A store full of service spirit.
950 yen is too excellent for this volume and quality of taste!
Line up after 11:30 on Tuesday. There were 2 people waiting for customers.
I entered the store after waiting about 20 minutes.

Southern All Stars songs are playing inside the store.
There are train-related goods on the wall.
It is impressive how small the space is on display.

▶︎What you ordered
▫︎Stewed hamburger curry set ¥950
Large serving (free)

I ordered a limited quantity of hamburger curry.

Spiciness that lasts from the taste to the end
The flavor of aromatic vegetables and onions is concentrated.

Ingredients are as shown in the photo
With lots of vegetables
The sweetness of the beans is just right.

Thick and voluminous

【Miso soup with pork and vegetables】
Full of ingredients
It seems that the lack of vegetables can be solved.

Unless the store owner has a strong service spirit.
I feel like I can't afford this price in this day and age.

Customer service is also polite and pleasant.

Thank you for the meal.


(Taste impressions are from ★)

The store this time is [Takeuchi Jimbocho Main Branch].

Located in Jimbocho,
A restaurant where you can enjoy colorful and beautiful curry.
On the day I visited, the Top 100 Tabelog Curry restaurants in TOKYO were announced, and Mr. Takeuchi was also selected.

The location is 3.4 minutes walk from Jimbocho Station. From Yasukuni Dori, enter a narrow street, and if you enter an even narrower street, you will find a shop.

The time was a little before 11:30.
There was no waiting outside, and the restaurant was fully booked.
The opening hours seem to be between 11:00 and 11:30, so they may have opened a little earlier this time.
Waited about 5 minutes and went inside the store.

I ordered [TAKEUCHI Sea Duet].
It was a large portion for free, so I ordered a large portion.

As you can see in the photo, the arrangement is quite elaborate.
When serving it to the customer next to me, he said, ``I'm sorry to have kept you waiting,'' so I thought, well, I'll just have to wait.
It arrived in about 5 minutes.

I didn't think it would come at all
I was a little surprised.
It's early enough.
And it's too beautiful.
And it looks delicious.

Let's have it then.

★・TAKEUCHI Sea Duet ¥1200

Take a bite of sea curry right away...

Wow! So milky!
This is delicious!

It's extremely delicious, with a firm sweetness and firm spicy spiciness, accented by chunks of shrimp, scallops, and squid.
The curry is made with fresh cream and butter, so it feels quite sweet, but the spicy aftertaste gives it a very elegant impression.

Another type is Keema-style curry.
This is keema-style with minced octopus, squid, and shrimp. This one is a little spicy and contains beans, which can be used to accentuate the spiciness and texture.

All of the decorative flowers are edible, so enjoy them with the curry. Of course, I think the main thing is the gorgeousness, but it's also nice to be able to inoculate a lot of vegetables, and the Achar tomatoes and early red are also good.

The miso is spicy and delicious, like hijiki and pickled plums, and it's packed full of vegetables.

The volume is just right,
It's a large portion and quite filling.
It was absolutely delicious.
Thank you for the meal.

To be honest, I thought it was just the appearance, but I got the impression that this is a wonderful curry restaurant that makes everything stand out.
There were so many things that I personally liked, such as the taste, the volume, the cost performance, the atmosphere, the speed at which it was served, and the amount of vegetables, to the point where I regretted why I hadn't come to this curry restaurant before.

Due to the location, it is served during lunch breaks for office workers, so I wondered if this was done in consideration of the time.
I don't think you'll have to wait long in line, so I thought you should try it.
it's recommended.

Next is a whimsical plate.I'm also curious about the hamburger steak. Let's complete it for now.
The presentation and contents seem to change quite a bit, so it's fun. I'll come back later.

Well then, thank you for the meal.
It was very delicious.
