Mr. Tanaka from Fukuoka, Japan is passionate about two things--ramen and Japanese-style "European curry". Both are made with stock brewed from pork and chicken bones and plenty of vegetables. The defining difference for European curry is not adding seafood or skipjack tuna, instead using caramelized onions cooked three hours to sweeten the rich curry sauce. Tanaka will quickly finish a plate of his own curry without a second word, indicating his love for his own cuisine. (Please note that, as Taikaitei is opening a branch in SOGO Department Store between Feb. 10 and 24, the main restaurant will be closed during this time.) --By NaingChen, translated by Naomi Lai
A. Taikaitei Curry Kitchen is Mr. Tanaka's second restaurant after Taikai Ramen.
B. Fried Pork Chop Curry (NT$180, NT$230 set meal) includes salad, soup, dessert and coffee or tea. The curry sauce is served on the side, to be poured onto the rice before eating. With this course you get a mixture of flavorful curry rice and a crispy fried pork chop.
C. Baked Curry (NT$190, NT$240 set meal) originates in Kitakyushu, Japan and blends rich curry, stringy cheese, a half-boiled egg and juicy pork chunks into mouthfuls of eating satisfaction.
