Curry with a Flare
[updated August 2022]

Located in the eclectic “Dai-Ichi Ichiba” food court in Koenji, Curry-Bal Kujira is an Asian-fusion tapas bar where curry is prepped up with a flare and covering a good range of pallets; chicken curry, pork curry, coconut curry, to name a few. The “otoshi” or service appetizer changes daily and also adds a lot of delight to the experience. Refreshing sangria with Yamagata white and red wine is the perfect companion to all the flavorful dishes. Curry-Bal Kujira is a favorite of young locals who not only gather to enjoy good food but also to enjoy good music and lively conversation.
