Oyster and Watercress Curry??? Let's Try This Strange Combination in Ebisu, Tokyo.

Have you ever heard of oyster and watercress curry?? In Ebisu, a neighbourhood famous for its panoply of delicious restaurants, there is an incredibly tasty curry shop tucked away in a small alley. They have different flavours to try from; their speciality is oyster and watercress curry. This dish was only supposed to be a seasonal dish, but it was so popular that it stayed permanently on the menu. Will you try this strange combination too??

Feel free to follow favy!

Have you ever tried coriander curry? Or even cheese curry? Or oyster and watercress curry??

Sync

Sync is a small resto tucked away in an alley in Ebisu. It is surrounded by small bars and restaurants and might be a little hard to find. You have to be on the lookout for a an orange sign saying "Sync, Curry Bar" outside of a small building.
Sync is a cozy and comfortable restaurant with only about 13 seats.
The lunch set is about ¥1,000 and you can select from different types of curry and the specials, that you can customise (spiciness, topping, etc.). Rice is self-serve.
They also have "Happy Hour" from 17:30-19:30, draft beer is only ¥250 and organic wine is ¥350 (all the more reasons to go!)

This curry is jam-packed with oysters and watercress. It was supposed to be a seasonal curry, but it was highly popular so it became a regular on the menu!
The oyster complemented the spices in the curry very well. Every bite is like a party in your mouth.
The watercress is super fresh and crisp making the balance of textures perfect.

This curry isn't as thick as Japanese curry and is hence filling, but not too heavy.

Let's give this strange, but delicious flavour a try!
