Hours:MONDAY5:30PM to 8:00PM

It may seem obvious, but just get the curry. Champion’s has other options, like Japanese-style sandwiches (we got the chicken katsu one and liked it fine), but you’re here for the thick, gravy-like curries made Kanazawa-style. They come with a dark brown, almost black sauce that smothers everything on the plate. A great lunch option, if you’re in the area, both dine-in and takeout.
