Hello, everyone I am Chifumi Maeda, a Japanese female president living in Bangkok.
Thank you, guys, for visiting this
“True comments from Japanese female presidents living in Thailand” blog.
This is the meal that I really want to have when I am feeling down…
The meal that I want to have when I need to power-up myself…
The place is “Hokkaido Soup Curry”.
When you are hungry for dish of Soup Curry, go for “Hokkaido Soup Curry”
Curry is a food originated in India but the food evolved in Japan and reborn as Soup Curry.
It is said that the dish, Soup Curry was born in 1970’s and became one of Hokkaido’s local cuisine.
Curry in Japan is in general thick textured gravy like curry and
when we say curry in Japan, it is always this type of food.
But here in Bangkok, you can have Hokkaido born Soup Curry.
And the restaurant name says what they serve,
and only what they serve, “Hokkaido Soup Curry”.
And, the owner & chef is from Hokkaido. What more do you need.
Colorful and spicy aroma of the food is very appetizing!
They have number of different menu but,
the one I like the most and often have is “HORO HORO Chicken Soup Curry”.
“HORO HORO” is a mimetic word meaning melts or crumbles,
and here in the menu therefore means it is so fragilely soft that it crumbles and melts in your mouth.
How to order “Soup curry”
Here in this restaurant, you order your food as it is custom made just for you.
1. Choose your Soup Curry from 3 choices.
I like the La Voie royale, which is the restaurant’s original taste.
2. Choose a level of spiciness
Then choose the spiciness.
It goes from level 1 to 100 but as I am not very good against spiciness,
I always take level “3” the standard.
But I was told that there are people who goes for level 100… Some Like it Hot…
3. Choose the portion of rice – S, M, L size
And finally the rice kind (white rice or turmeric rice) and the portion.
4. All you have to do is wait for the food to come
The curry soup is made-to-order meaning cooked as when order comes in.
The curry spice flavor fades away with the time so they never have them precooked.
The restaurant is full with pleasant smell of spices stimulates your appetite.
As you start eating, you will start sweating probably
because the spices are working on your body system…
To be honest, I have never had a Soup Curry when I was living in Japan.
Bangkok is the first place that I ever had it.
I once had a chance to taste one when I happened to be in Sapporo Hokkaido
after having had the dish here in Bangkok.
And honestly thought then that the one here in Bangkok, (this Hokkaido Soup Curry Restaurant) is much better.
I always want to have this dish whenever I am not well and need to boost up my body energy.
Because Bangkok is hot throughout the year,
but the temperature difference between indoor and outdoor is so much that
it is difficult for many of us to manage our health as we should be.
In Japan, we say “Medicine and food are of the same origin”
and eating is very important to maintain good health.
Spices are known for a medicine from the ancient time
and we should keep that in mind and have spices in our daily diet and live a healthy life.
I would like you enjoy this authentic Hokkaido Soup Curry
and at the same time maintain your health just the way I am doing.
