Whether you’re looking for some crunchy comfort food to bring to a Central Park picnic or a solo Pose marathon on your couch, order yourself a katsu sando from Curry Mania. This counter-service Japanese curry shop operates inside of a ramen restaurant right across the street from the 72nd Street train stop on the UWS. We often wake up in the middle of the night thinking about their croquette sando - with carb-heavy deep-fried potato and creamy coleslaw on toasted milk bread. But we also love their pork tenderloin sando, which has a perfect balance of crunchy and squishy elements. No matter where you choose to eat, each sando order comes with four thick halves and a small tub of coleslaw on the side, leaving you with enough food for at least two fantastic meals.
