Hurry Curry of Tokyo - Sawtelle Blvd.

Servorg Apr 27, 2010 09:37 AM

This is a fairly regular stop for us, (maybe once a month) and I always get the Chicken Cutlet Curry (pounded chicken breast - breaded and fried) with spicy curry with vegetables. I don't know if I overlooked it before, (or, if in fact it's newish) but last night I saw that they now offered "fried chicken" and curry. This is not quite chicken age, which tends to have a much thicker breading, but consists of fairly big "bite" sized pieces of quite good fried chicken (which seemed quite juicy and flavorful). No bones of course. Not at all bad and may become my new "go to" dish here.

      A few weeks ago, my Lovely Tasting Assistant™ (who perpetually craves Japanese curry) and I tried Hurry Curry of Tokyo on a whim. We ordered the fried chicken spicy curry and it was, in fact, quite tasty. Not on par with the glorious fried chicken we devoured with the opaque yellow chicken/pork chuka-ramen kotteri we repeated consumed at Karako ramen-ya in Kyoto, but it'll do :)

        We constantly get pulled, first in one ethnic dining direction and then in the other, by my wife's 50% Japanese and 50% Korean heritage (not too mention the wild card of my all Amercian Heniz 57 varieties bending the curve nilly-willy)...

          Don't forget they have an attractive happy hour:

          3 to 6 Monday-Friday:

          Appetizers - $2 (includes a fried chicken item {maybe they'd substitute the sauce?}).
          Sake martinis - $2
          Beers - $2 (12 oz. bottled., Sapporo I think). (*)


          (*) Any place else on the westside you can a bottle of Sopporo for $2 ?

            I would be glad to take advantage of it, but my better half doesn't get off until 6 PM and then we don't get out of the house until closer to 6:30...so happy hour comes and goes at HC of T and we have to be content with "unhappy" hour. ;-D>

                Well, if that's true than please update your web page to reflect that.

                Is it $2 before 6 p.m., & $3 6 to 8 p.m. ~ Or is it now $3 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. ?

                  you're absolutely right - that website hasn't been touched in about 5 years. Thanks for your patience! I hope to have it up to date by next week
