Weekend Japanatainment - Japanese Curry Edition


Far East Curry

If you've never had Japanese Curry, I honestly feel bad for you. Japanese Curry is a culinary curiosity, it isn't as exotic as its Indian or Thai cousins and comes in different varieties from sweet, hot & spicy, fruity, or even a mix of those flavors in varying degrees. The different varieties makes it easy to introduce to picky western eaters whose favorite seasonings are limited to salt and pepper.

If you've ever read manga or watched anime, you've probably seen japanese curry being made and/or consumed, it's easy to prepare and is a staple part of the  modern Japanese diet despite its foreign origins. It's often paired with rice and sometimes over a fried breaded cutlet or the sauce is with some kind of starch like spaghetti or even ramen noodles. It's definitely very Japanese with how it has been adopted and adapted in the last few decades.

So I hope y'all enjoy this week's selection of videos all about this odd yet delicious Japanese dish and I take no responsibility for any actions any readers commit under the influence of hunger after watching these videos. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

YouTuber Micaela prepares some Japanese curry!

Let's first take look at this video by Micaela on how to prepare the store bought curry you can find in a lot of stores in the Japan (as well as asian groceries in the US).


Instant Curry commercial

I want this to come over to the US so I can have it everyday. I don't care if its not as good as the "real thing".


Normal Curry Commercial

Not all commercials about curry in Japan are weird.


TabiEats makes some Japanese Curry

Another video to show you how to prepare the dish. Its pretty easy. The only tricky part is getting the water right. Just don't add a lot since there is water in the chicken and vegetables.


Pokemon Curry Commercial

Here is a commercial for ready-to-eat curry in a pouch that is branded with Pikachu from Pokemon. I want a kiddy spork like that but for adults.


Pokemon Curry Rice with Pikachu face

Why yes, we finally made something about Pokemon because of the new craze of people trespassing on private property. This video is about YouTube channel JapaneseStuffChannel making some curry rice shaped in the face of Pikachu with a special plastic mold. Tasty.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
