This casual Japanese restaurant in the Richmond has everything from udon to potato croquette sandwiches - but you’re here for the curries. For $11, you’ll get a massive plate of white rice paired with a protein of your choice, like chicken katsu, onion-ginger pork, or fried oysters. You’ll also get an Olympic pool-sized container of their gravy-like curry sauce. We love the chicken katsu curry plate, which is, hands down, one of the best in the city. Another thing to to know about Volcano Curry is they make a great katsu sandwich: two breaded fried chicken cutlets are stacked on top of each other, and then layered with a ton of coleslaw, and a slightly-sweet sauce. You will need two hands to eat this. Things will get messy. But when a sandwich is this fantastic, there are no complaints.
