European-Style Curry Made With 36 Spices And Cooked For 140 Hours
Beef Tongue Curry [¥3,000, taxes included]
This is the popular Beef Tongue Curry which is served with the curry and rice in separate bowls. The rice has some cheese and raisins as toppings.
The curry with 36 herbs is cooked for 140 hours, making all the subtle tastes work in synergy to achieve an impossibly delicious dish.
The pieces of beef tongue that are about the size of the palm of a hand are so tender that you can break them apart with your spoon.
As you eat through, you'll get a nice scent of cardamom and taste the sweetness of the vegetables coupled with a mild spiciness. The taste is complex and truly exquisite.
Words can't really describe how good the curry made by Tomato is. Try it out if you have the chance. People say it's worth queuing for.
