【Dine-out & To-go in Sasebo】Amazing 1.2 kg Curry!-DANCHI SYOKUDOU | “コスパが高い”って英語で何て言う?「だんち食堂」【テイクアウトあり!】


Hello everyone! This is not actually a English-friendly spot, but we can’t resist introducing it to you. Danchi Shokudo is a Japanese-style diner offering tasty Japanese everyday dishes at great prices.

Look at the picture below. It’s their signature dish “DD curry”, a extra large size of Japanese curry and rice. It’s still affordable at ¥1000 yen although it weighs 1.2 kg twice as large as their normal size. It’s topped with pork cutlets, deep-fried prawns, and fried chicken on the curry and rice. The portion will definitely satisfy a big eater’s stomach. You can also share it with your kids since it ‘s not too spicy.

Aside from the extra large curry, they offer several kinds of teishoku, a set meal which comes with a main, miso soup, rice, salad, and pickles. All meals are great values for your money (from 500 yen to 700 yen) .
