Asano(アサノ） is one of the famous Katsu curry restaurants in Tokyo. It is located in Machida, I guess you are not familiar with this city. It takes 20 min from Shinjuku to Machida by train. They win an award from the best Japanese restaurant review site called Tabelog. Lots of people are heading there, because of Wonderful Katsu curry. I can swear that it worth having it.
When you are walking to the restaurant, you might get lost. Between a narrow street, you will find the small historic restaurant. The capacity of the restaurant is only 7. Therefore, there are always so many people waiting. Please wait a moment. Your great experience is coming soon. Once you sit down, you can have a Katsu curry. It tastes like a homemade curry, but I feel deeply spices. It’s hard to explain it, however, it tastes extraordinarily sumptuous.
