Yokosuka is one of city name near Tokyo. There is American & Japanese navy(Actually Japanese has a self-defense force, not navy). The curry of this navy is known as delicious and famous in Japan.
Japanese navy has a curry lunch every Friday. Because they get loosen a sense of what day of the week it is during long voyages.
Today, I introduce Japanese Navy curries.
Soukai-kan Hachijo pork curry
“Soukai-kan” means a minesweeper warship. This warship named after Hachijo island below Tokyo.
This Yokosuka curry honpo is a pork curry, sweetened and full-bodied taste for the crew on board, a retort curry developed based on the recipe.
I ate the curry on a naan (Indian flatbread) 😊 Japanese calls this is “Naan doc” like a hot doc.
Sensui-kan Uzushio chicken Curry
“Sensui-kan” means submarine. “Uzushio” means Whirlpool.
This curry was made by a curry shop in Yokosuka called “Dobuita Shokudo Perry”.
It’s a delicious chicken curry with a rich flavor and it is really filling😲
Goei-kan Yugiri beef curry
“Goei-kan” means a convoy. “Yugiri” means evening fog.
This convoy is powered by a Rolls-Royce spay. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 bumped into Kashima next to Yugiri 20 years ago when she called at an offshore ceremony in New York City on Independence Day.
I’m sure that was because she wanted to greet Her Majesty the Queen.
This curry is made by the Mercure Hotel in Yokosuka, spicy beef curry with coffee as a secret ingredient.
Real color is thicker brown. This is acquired taste😉
