Nadini at Kiyosumishirakawa ナンディニ 清澄白河

Next, there are lots of Indian curry restaurants in Tokyo. I want to introduce my favorite south Indian restaurant named Nandini, which is located in Kiyosumishirakawa. Kiyosumishirakawa is recently getting popular among the Japanese because of its modern art and trendy coffee shops. Definitely, Instagrammable. The first Blue Bottle Coffee chose to open here, as the atmosphere is quite similar to Portland, USA. Anyway, Kiyosumishirakawa is worth visiting.

You can see the SkyTree from the bridge.

Let’s go back to the curry. You can enjoy south Indian meals at Nandini(ナンディニ). Recently, south Indian meals have been getting popular; I like most of the meals here. There are different courses on one plate. The egg on the rice cannot be seen in other shops, and it tastes extraordinarily sumptuous. I love this plate!

lunch set, 1380 yen.
