The Best Japanese Curry in SF

Volcano Curry

When you start to need full-face ski masks while riding your bike to work in the morning, you know it's curry weather. And we don't necessarily mean Thai or Indian curries (although those are delicious too)–we mean the more homestyle, rib-sticking Japanese Curry (fun fact: Curry was introduced to Japan during the Meiji era by the British, then perfected with the French technique of using roux), which is a little sweeter, thicker and less spicy than its counterparts. In short, it's soul food perfect for bulking up against chilly nights and frosty mornings.

This House Cray: 807 Francisco Street in San Francisco, CA
