Curry is practically an international language of delicious comfort food. When hearing the word “curry”, most people think about Indian foods, like the tasty tikka masala, or a hearty vindaloo. Varieties of curry, however, grace tables all throughout Asia, from Pakistan to Sri Lanka, China, and Japan. Haven’t tried Japanese-style curry yet? Well, you’re in for a treat at Go Go Curry, just about half a mile from Pier 11 at 12 John Street!

Number 55

Named after famous New York Yankees outfielder and designated hitter Hideki Matsui’s jersey number, Go Go Curry serves up big dishes of their Kanazawa-style curry. You can recognize it by its thick, dark sauce and its off-beat toppings, like boiled eggs or sausages. It’s a unique style you don’t see too often outside of Japan, but like everything else that’s good, you can find it here in Manhattan.

(Wondering what a baseball player has to do with curry? Hideki Matsui was born in the Kanazawa region, and he’s a pretty big hero there. The word “go” means “five” in Japanese, and his jersey was number 55. If you win big on a game show because you knew this, be sure to tell ‘em you learned it from Seastreak.)
