Saboten Shokudo
Higobashi: Curry
Saboten Shokudo
Open 11:30am-3, 6-9pm. Closed Sundays.

The prize-winning Japanese curries served are rich and complex in flavor, made with a mix of Indian spices added to a meaty European-style stock. The deep-fried beef cutlet in the gyukatsu curry has a nice crunchy coating that stands up to the sauce, which is also laced with bits of beef. Pickled onions are the only condiment, and provide a good counterbalance to the oiliness of the meat.

The dining area is all counter seating, with an attractiive wide blond-wood counter and blond wood paneling on the walls. Most curries are under Y1000. No dinner on Saturdays, only lunch.

Osaka-shi Nishi-ku, Edobori 1-23-12.
