神保町のカレー屋

九段下で用があったので、神保町でカレーが食べたくなった。スマホで調べると昔の記憶と少し違っていた。見栄えがすごくきれいなカレー屋を見つけて並んだ。

私の前には3人待っていなかったが、入店するのに30分以上はかかった。カウンターだけで8席しかないが、私より少し上の世代の脱サラと思しき夫婦が、狭い店内を駆けずり回っていた。来店客全員に「お待たせして本当にすみません」と謝っていた。

ニンジンをくり抜いて小さなウサギをかたどるなど、とにかく芸が細かい。けんちん汁とサフランライスと野菜がついて950円。

これで本当にペイするのだろうか。ボンディー(神保町エリア1位のカレー店)と同じ1450円でも十分にやっていけると思う。次回食べに行くときに奥様に伝えよう。

The curry shop in Jinbocho

As something came up at Kudanshita, I wanted to eat the curry rice at Jinbocho. Researching shops on an iPhone, the curry shops’ map was different from my old memories. I found a shop that served nice-looking curries and then waited there.

Although only 3 people were waiting, it took over 30 minutes to enter the shop. There was only 8 counter seats, but a married couple who looked a bit senior to me were running around everywhere in the shop. To all the customers, they expressed an apology to have kept them waiting.

The curry they cooked was really meticulous. For example, rabbit-shaped carrots to be hallowed out were put on the plate.
It was 950 Japanese yen with miso-soup (Kenchin-jiru), saffron rice, and raw vegetable.

Would it really be worth it? I think they can definitely run the operation even if they increase their price to 1,450 Japanese yen which is as same as Bondy (the ranking No.1 curry shop in Jinbocho area). When I visit next time, I will tell so to his wife.
