GO!GO! CURRY! offers New Yorkers a place to experience fun, home-style Japanese cuisine. Specializing in Ishikawa curry, which comes from the home prefecture of #55 baseball player Hideki Matsui, it’s no coincidence that this garment district restaurant’s name is GO!GO!CURRY!, which translated in Japanese means 5-5. Ishikawa curry is different from Thai and Indian curries; it is a rich, mildly spiced, gooey, pork gravy, thick enough to eat with a fork, served in a stainless steel bowl. The simplest way to enjoy their curry is straight, over a pile of rice, which comes in baseball inspired sizes. “The Walk” is the smallest next is the single and double followed by the triple which is the largest. Most customers go one step further and add one of the ten available toppings which range from deep fried proteins to pickled Japanese radishes. “The Grand Slam” combo offers a sample of several items including: rice, curry, 2 sausages, 1 shrimp, 1 pork & chicken cutlet and a hardboiled egg. Coming up on its 5th anniversary next year GO!GO!CURRY! has built up a regular fan base of day time office workers, night time students, and weekend-shopping families.

Pork Katsu Curry

Great for warming the stomach on a chilly day, Pork Katsu is lean pork cutlet covered in dense crust of panko bread crumbs that is deep fried to order. Thick Ishikawa curry bowl marries the cutlet to sticky rice while thin sliced cabbage provides a cool interlude that stands up to the dishes rich flavors.
