Nana’s Green Tea

A place that caught my eye when looking for food options in the department store by Yokosuka Chuo station.  What probably caught my eye was the dish I chose the first time, the tuna and avocado rice bowl.  There are several such bowls with rice and noodles and soups, and a plentiful drink selection plus some Japanese style desserts.  Being in a department store, the prices are a bit above average, and it’s not a place to linger for a long time.  However, it tasted fresh, the servings were just right, and the interior was nice with blue lights.  Not sure about English menus, but it’s easy to go in.  Just something to consider if in the area, or I think there’s a branch in Yokohama too.

麺屋 庄太 津久井浜本店 / Menya Shota

A small shop a little further down the Keikyu line from Yokosuka Chuo.  It was recommended to me by another teacher at school, and it did not disappoint.  I’m not a ramen enthusiast, but if you love ramen I think it’s worth a visit if you’re in the area.  I can imagine without Japanese you might have a hard time ordering, but if you can just say ramen and you’re fine with that then go for it.

Looking for curry in Yokosuka-chuo?  This place has all you need.  Maybe those who know the difference between Indian and Nepalese curry and need to have Indian curry would have something to say, but think typical bowl of curry with a large slice of naan.  It fills me up enough every time that it took several visits before I found the room in my stomach to get the an-naan (sweet red bean).  The sets come with salad and I think discounts on drink, including plain and mango lassis.  They have Wifi, the staff speaks English and I never know which language I should speak, at least half the customers are foreigners, they do takeout, and all for average prices.  The last time I went the curry was actually a little too buttery for me, but as long as that was a one-time deal I know I’ll be going again and again.  I am no expert, but Indian curry is definitely one foreign dish that Japan does right.

Bonuriya/ ぼんうり屋

Oh my, the first time I ate here I thought “this is real Korean food.”  Every part of the meal from the bancha (kimchi and other starters) to the soup to the koncha (corn tea?) is enjoyable.  Sometimes it’s hard to tell if they’re open or not- the first and last time I went on a weekend it was pretty full but the other few times I’ve been it wasn’t very busy, and sometimes they close when they have Korean classes.  I’m not sure about English but there are plenty of pictures.  I’m not sure I’d go all the way from Tokyo just to eat here, but if it were closer to where I live I’d probably go every week.

An izakaya along Dobuita street, a place catering to foreigners from the navy base and Japanese people wanting to escape Japan for a moment.  A good number of shops along the street are bars, and at night it really doesn’t feel like Japan.  A good number of shops, including Yokosuka Shell, also sell the famous Yokosuka Navy Curry and Navy Burger.  We came because we wanted to try the Navy Curry, and because it was kind of late at night and it was open.

It didn’t feel like an izakaya so much as a restaurant where you can also get a beer after a long day.  It was a not-so-busy Sunday night, with a few elderly ladies chatting at the counter, young folks sitting around a table, no smoking at least at the moment.  There were no foreigners, but anywhere selling Navy Curry I’m sure is ready for them.  It was not the prettiest place but was comfortable, and the food was good for what it’s worth.  I thought that the Navy Curry was probably as good as any Navy Curry, but perhaps a specialty shop might serve it better, and that if you want to go to an izakaya there are probably more izakaya-like places.  I’d go back if I were in the area and just wanted a beer, but I wouldn’t go out of my way.

横須賀といえば海軍カレーと横須賀チーズケーキ!

シェルという横須賀中央駅にある居酒屋さんに行ってきました。

横須賀という街に初めて行きましたがなんとも独特な雰囲気。

そんな横須賀の雰囲気満載なレストランでした。

海軍カレーに牛乳が付いてくるのが面白い!

味はまあまあなので、横須賀の雰囲気を味わいたい方は是非*
