Kouraku Japanese Restaurant

$$$$

You go to Kouraku for Japanese-style comfort food, plain and simple. Come here when your favorite tennis player loses a slam, or in times where the only solution is, clearly, a big ol’ bowl of fried rice. Curries are king, served with either stewed beef, deep-fried shrimp, or the classic chicken katsu. Bowls are filled to the brim with a deep brown gravy and glistening bed of rice. Eat this with a spoon during lunchtime and reflect on everything going on in your life (work, family, the fact that you’ve still never had a TikTok go viral, etc.)
