Run by a Hokkaido-based soup-curry specialist, Mikazuki offers three distinct versions of curry rice - butter chicken, spicy chicken and lamb with red wine sauce. Lotus root, shredded carrots and garlic-fried broccoli are among the photogenic toppings, as is zangi, a richly flavored Hokkaido-style version of karaage fried chicken. Coffee is from a famous Hokkaido shop called Mame-Hico. Budget around Y1200-1500 for a filling meal.
