Allergens: wheat, egg, dairy, orange, beef, sesame, mackerel, soy, chicken, pork Cooking time: 4 minutes In Yokosuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture, there is a different kind of curry called Yokosuka Kaigun Curry (Yokosuka Navy Curry). The curry can only be eaten in Yokosuka City. There are many curry recipes in Japan, but there are several requirements to be Yokosuka Kaigun Curry. The Navy Curry is a reproduction of a recipe in the “Naval Kappou Jutsu Reference Book” published in 1908, which contains recipes for military food prepared by the Japanese Navy. It is including instructions on how to make curry rice, but it is not enough to cook the curry. Fun fact: the reason the navy eats curry, is because they have a set day for it, and every week, when it’s curry day, the whole navy knows it’s Tuesday! Supervised by the famous restaurant Gyorantei, this cup of ramen is following those requirements perfectly. The dish comes with udon-like noodles that have both moderate elasticity and feel. Paired with a sweet curry soup based on pork and beef with onion and bonito flavor. Using the characteristic curry powder, it creates the taste of Gyorantei's curry.
