Located on 4jo street, the interior of this restaurant is interesting and makes you feel like you're in an American restaurant.
The staff at the restaurant is also cheerful and polite, which makes you want to visit the restaurant again and again.
We ordered the "Special Mild Curry (not spicy) 580 yen".
But first, we get to have a salad !
The sour dressing on the crunchy vegetables is delicious.
We topped it with Gouda cheese (150 yen).
The cheese was cut in a large thick piece.
The cheese is served on top of the rice, not on the curry's roux.
Like this you can adjust how much cheese you want to mix with the roux while eating.
The surface of the gouda cheese is slightly browned.
Aah, these fragrance and aromas! You just can’t resist them!
Our reporter chose the weakly spiced, sweet curry this time. To our reporter's surprise, he curry was rich and delicious!
The shop’s developed their original curry which has a pleasant natural sweetness
The Gouda cheese melts gradually and is a perfect match with the curry. Moreover, it’s a big topping that you can enjoy all dish long without running out of.

Curry shop Simba
This curry shop is marked by a blue sign with a lion symbol.
At this restaurant specialised in curry you can find a quite large variety of dishes on the menu.
This time we decided to try their well-liked bacon curry (850 yen) topped with cheese (150 yen).
There are many thin slices of cheese!
This bacon curry is really delicious, amplified by the savour of the slightly browned yet tender bacon.
The roux is dark and rich.
It's so delicious that you can gulp it down like a drink !
The hot roux melts the cheese quickly, creating a soft and stretchy mixture bursting in flavours.
The roux itself is medium-spicy, but when the cheese melts, it adds a mild sweetness that gives it a different taste.
It's delicious to say the least (laughs).
There is also a topping called grilled cheese (180 yen), so you can try it with whichever you like...

Curry no Chikara
This is the second time our reporter came here since its opening in March.
It’s still so popular that customers have to queue to enter to be able to eat here.
The restaurant has a partition between the seats at the counter. The restaurant is doing all it can to keep its customers safe during the pandemic.
Here is the beef stew curry (710 yen) topped with cheese (120 yen)!
Our reporter didn't order a large portion, but it was quite large.
Moreover, for only 120 you have quite a lot of cheese !
The moment you put the spoon in it, it melted and stretched!
If you're not careful, you will end up with some cheese on your chin.
The cheese has a strong flavour and is a must-have for cheese lovers.
It goes perfectly with the sweet curry our reporter chose.
With its affordable price, this restaurant is great for people who wants to eat something casually.
