Japanese Style Curry

The menu at K-Ton Japanese restaurant in Federal Way features a full section of curry dishes. You might know curry better as a middle-eastern spice, but the phenomenon of “Japanese-style curry-rice” has grown to a point that it has taken on a life all its own. This should hardly be a surprise to anybody familiar with the country; after all, Japan has a long history of good, healthy food, and curry is among the healthiest substances you can eat.

Health Benefits

It can be hard to list all of curry’s health benefits, as “curry” actually describes a number of different blends of spices that each have their own merits. However, one highlight that runs through most curry blends is turmeric.

A known “superfood”, this substance has been shown to be a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, capable of reducing arthritis symptoms and opening up blood vessels to increase circulation. Other scientific evidence also suggests at the spice’s power to fight heart disease, certain cancers, and the onset of age-related mental illnesses like Alzheimer’s disease.

At K-Ton, you can enjoy curry rice with veggies, tofu, or your favorite kind of katsu meat. Come by for a different combination each week, and make curry a regular part of your healthy diet!
