alba_frontThe style of Japanese curry known as "Kanazawa Curry" was the first I'd ever tasted, although I didn't know it at the time. Sure, I knew I was living in Kanazawa, Japan as an exchange student, but I didn't know that the curry rice I was eating every day in the school's dining hall was a particular regional type of curry.

These days, Kanazawa curry -- known for a sweet brown sauce made with caramel among other unique ingredients -- has been making a name for itself in Akihabara, Tokyo's electronics/otaku district, where three different restaurants are now open within about 100 meters of each other serving different takes on K-curry.

One of them is Go Go Curry, naturally.

I wrote about this development for Wired.com on a recent trip to Japan. Check it out!
