Currychiwa literally means ‘hello, curry!’ in Japanese. It’s rice with a tasty and unique Japanese curry sauce filled with carrots and potatoes. It offers you all the flavours of Japanese cuisine: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami. And we’ve made it entirely vegan and glutenfree. But to make it even tastier you can also add chicken, beef, fish, or extra veggies if you like. Oh and did we already mention that you can make it as spicy as you want? 🌶🌶🌶 Don't like rice, try udon!
Straight from Tokyo
Currychiwa is real street food: you eat it right out of the box, with just a spoon. But it’s even tastier sitting at a table in a real curry house, of course. In Tokyo they even enjoy it in the morning, at lunch, in the evening and as a snack, which is why you’ll find curry houses on every street corner. In Shimokitazawa district alone there are over 200. Irasshaimase!

Did you know that Currychiwa has its own emoji? 🍛 When Michael still lived in Tokyo, he knew all there was to know about it: that they shout ‘Irashaimase’ when you walk in and that the one with the Tonkatsu is the tastiest. But when he returned to Belgium there was nowhere to get his curry fix, which is why he dreamt of setting up his own curry house with his friend Bruno. 9,478 km from Tokyo in Ghent... it’s a start!
