Paging Eric Eto and other Japanophiles!
I am writing to inquire about the famous Yoshoku style restaurants in Japan (Tokyo most likely, but not exclusively) as well as the dining experience.
I recall reading somewhere of a place that still exists that proclaims to have served the first curry.
Are there any updates on the popularity of the style?
Is anyone knowledgeable of the history of these restaurants?
Is there any solid documentation that links the introduction of curry to the British Navy as I have heard the story goes?
Any info on the first appearances of other favorites such as hamberg steak, cream stew, cabbage rolls, hayashi rice, ton katsu?
