Stamina Curry: バーグ

Last night a customer recommended a nice curry shop called Bagu(バーグ), which sells something called stamina curry.   Now there isn’t a lot of information out there that clearly defines where the stamina comes from.  My customer told me it comes from the garlic they add to the sauce that gives this curry its stamina claim.  So, I had to answer the call to duty and visit this place today.

From the Yokohama city subway line take Exit #6 at Isezaki-chojamachi station.

You’ll immediately see a dentist off to your right as soon as you exit.  Keep walking straight down this street.

You’ll know you are headed in the right direction because you’ll be walking along  Yayoicho street, to which the street sign should always be on your left-hand side.

Last landmark is the red “P” sign you see off to your right.  Keep walking.

Here it is, on your right hand side walking from the station.  Total time from station to shop is 5 minutes on foot. 
If you decide to take the bus from Yokohama station board bus# 110 and get off at Isezakicho-chojamachi bus stop.  The bus stop is right in front of the subway station then follow the directions I just gave.  What I immediately noticed upon entering is the level of cleanliness and at how many customers were there.  I was impressed.  Many customs were salarymen and locals, women, and children.  There was even a line outside for take-out.
Just as this place was recommended to me I recommend it to my readers because if you like curry, chances are you’ll love this shop.

The hardest part about ordering is choosing from all the different curry dishes!  I went with the local favorite called “stamina curry” with fried egg, you can opt for raw if you like.  The portion sizes are very generous.  This was the largest plate of curry I ever had in my life and as you can see I wasn’t able to finish it.  Average cost is between 750 to 1000 yen. They are open from 11 to 21:30 except Mondays.
I enjoyed this curry a lot, and could easily see myself returning in the future.  I ordered the largest size they had.  There are smaller portion sizes.  Another note.  The restaurant looked very clean and well maintained.  I requested a mild curry.  There is a spicier version available upon request.
Thanks for the recommendation Koji!

Shin-Okubo: Little Korea

So I finally got around to going up there to Shin-Okubo,  the land of Seoul via the Yamanote Line.  Been putting this trip off for years for personal reasons;  I am not a fan of Hanlleyu.      I knew why I came up this way, and for none other reason than the food, and maybe to bask in the nausea of Korean romanticist who steal Japanese Jukujo's souls.    But honestly, I like spicy food and stews and pickled vegetables that challenge my taste buds.    I also love the little funky cafes that line the main thoroughfares and alley ways, each with their own little eclectic menus and interior decor.     This place is Korea.  





Shin-Okuba represents more than just a place to relish in Korean culinary delights and K-pop culture, but a place where Koreans can express themselves through their culture.    You can feel the local vibe in the air as you're walking down narrow walkways and footpaths.    I have personally been to mainland Korea six times, so a lot of the nostalgia was there …

Japanese Girls: A Sex(quisition)

While writing this, I was listening to "Going Through Changes" by Eminem

No, I haven't lost any love for momma, Japanese Jukujo that is, and yes, I do have a special place in my heart for young Japanese women, too. 

But then....then I glance over and there's a momma, a delectable Japanese Jukujo momma.  Fully rounded, and fully figured and fair healthy skinned.  Full fine silky muff fujii mounds. 

From this point I feel I need to qualify my remarks more thoroughly, though, especially when referencing women in general.   Firstly, it cannot be denied that there are beautiful women all over the world and from a variety of different backgrounds.  Women are people. However, in this essay I would like to take it a little further.

For me, living in Japan I have created a world unto myself so to speak.  I believe that some people create reasons for doing things, more so than there actually being a real need for doing said things, while others drift along accepting any an…
