I waited for my sister to take the first bite, and when she did, she was silent. Her eyes may have rolled back a little bit. "Well, how is it?" I asked. Her reply was "It's simply the best curry stew I've ever had in my life!" Of course, I jumped in and scoop a generous amount of rice and a chunk of beef in my mouth. My palette went into overdrive as savoury and bold flavours spread all over my mouth, blending in perfect harmony with Japanese rice. I'm not usually a fan of beef stew as they are often overcooked and have hard and chewy texture. This time, the beef was so tender and flaky and there should've been more on the plate. We ended up clearing both dishes in a short amount of time. As agreed, we ended our course with a green tea mont blanc (800 yen).
To be honest, we were both most pleased with the curry beef stew, then the doria. The green tea mont blanc looked very appealing. However, we couldn't taste anything else but sweet cream. The green tea flavour was very faint and there is more cream filling inside. I found that it was just too heavy. Perhaps, the original mont blanc would have been a better choice. Overall, I have to say that this little shop is a hidden gem in Kamakura. It is a great spot to take a short break from sightseeing just to enjoy a cup of coffee and delicious curry beef stew.
