Listen up, Japanese curry fans—or, really, anyone interested in finding a new go-to quick dinner spot—hyperfixate on Yoma Cafe in the Sunset. The very casual counter-service spot is built for low-effort weeknight meals or catch-ups with coworkers you can only spend 45 minutes max with before running out of stories about your shared work nemesis. We love this place because it’s efficient—and because the aforementioned curry, a centerpiece on every table, is rich and flavorful. Get it poured over crispy chicken katsu, which is fried to a crackly golden-brown, and served atop rice and pickled vegetables for an extra bright touch. Then make a mental note to “forget” to go grocery shopping next week so you have an excuse to come back.
