If you haven’t had Japanese curry before, it’s a little more mellow, involving a thick gravy that’s more spiced than spicy. Hurry Curry serves a big menu, but you want to focus on the chicken cutlet curry. A big piece of breaded chicken comes out pre-sliced with rice, a small cabbage salad, and a bowl of the curry sauce to spoon all over the top. It’s comforting, filling, and a good way to induce an afternoon nap.
