Today, I got my ass handed to me at Coco Curry.
This Japanese curry chain has a loyal fan base and we’d heard about it from others visiting Japan, so we thought we’d give it a try today!
Ordering is very unique and a little confusing (note my toppings) as everything is completely bespoke, from the meat base of the curry sauce, to the weight of your rice and most importantly, the heat of your curry. The heat levels range from -5 (there’s 5 levels of mild) all the way up to a 10. You aren’t allowed to order levels 6 upwards until you have successfully finished a level 5 curry. Serious stuff.
As someone who just can’t handle the spice life I ordered a level -3 (which embarrassingly stated was a suitable level for children 😅) but this unfortunately got lost in translation and I was served a spicy level 3 instead! 🥵 God knows how any human can consume a level 10 because these curries have KICK 🔥 Q can handle the heat and was sweating at level 4!
Coco Curry: you’re weird and I like you. But please, the children’s curry next time 😂
