Samurai offers some of the most customizable soup curries in town with their "Samurai Matsuri" bowls, which let you choose three or four main ingredients from the thirty or so options available on any given day. Choices range from lamb patties, lamb pot au feu, fried chicken, shrimp, and oysters to mixed mushrooms, cheese, and natto.
Bowls with up to twenty seasonal vegetables are another popular choice. All curries come with your choice of vegetable-, soy milk-, or coconut-based soup. You can also specify the degree of heat (from zero to ten) and the amount of rice (from none to a double-size portion). Prices average around Y1400 for a well-balanced bowl.
