ISO japanese curry roux blocks

Can this be found in Chinatown? I am in downtown Boston, and would like to try this out (to cook, not at a restaurant), anybody seen this stuff around?

  1. FYI I want to make katsu and curry rice

    1. I know I've seen them at Ebisuya in Medford, but that's a hike from downtown. And HMart in Central should have them in their Japanese section when they open -- the Burlington one has them.

      1. Every Asian supermarket in town carries multiple flavors from multiple brands of them. Try C-Mart on Lincoln St or Jia Ho on Washington St near/in Chinatown.

        I've long wondered about the origin of the Vermont Curry brand name. Thanks, Google:

            Thanks, Allstonian! That had bugged me for years; had to Google it myself, too.
