Soup Curry is one of my absolutely favorite dishes.
It's a dish that became popular in the Sapporo area and soon spread to various parts of Japan. Like the name says, it's a curry soup filled with vegetables, chicken, and/or pork, which you eat with rice.
Dominica is a soup curry specialty restaurant in Sapporo and they opened this branch in Shinjuku this spring. Actually, they opened this store on March 11, which was the day of the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. I read somewhere that they had to close the store down for a couple of days after, but have since resumed their regular hours.
They have 3 different soup to choose from: the original Yellow soup, the tomato base Red soup, and the pork base Black soup. You can also choose if you want vegetables, chicken mix, or pork mix.
Since I'm a vegetarian I got the yellow soup with the vegetables. You can also specify how spicy you want the soup to be. The scale ranges from 1 to 10, which is mild to I-don't-want-to-feel-anything-in-my-mouth hot. I'm a wimp so I got a 3. It was the perfect blend of curry spice and vegetable sweetness and I was beyond full at the end of the meal.
Have you ever had soup curry before? If you're ever in Shinjuku, you should definitely stop by!
