Located in the same random little plaza as Sapporo Ramen, Cafe Mami is place to go for curry. Rich curry, free rice refills, and a hot, crisp chicken cutlet, this is ultimate comfort food. It also comes with a little bowl of miso soup and a refreshing salad. Their curry has a deep flavor that I haven’t been able to find anywhere else. I like to get it with a chicken cutlet but my Mr. likes it with tatsuta chicken since it’s meatier. They also have several dons but we never got around to trying them. Like Sapporo Ramen, this place is teeny and the kitchen is even teenier. You feel like a guest in someone’s home kitchen and it’s wonderful.
One afternoon, after a long morning of running errands, I started craving Cafe Mami real bad. My Mr. and I drove over and lucky us, we didn’t have to wait for a seat. With the first bite, I was filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I put down my spoon and thought about how lucky we are to not only have easy access to food but to such delicious food. Not everyone is as blessed as we are and so many people in this world are hungry and lacking nutritious, good food. That bite of curry made me realize how grateful I am for all that we have, curry included. Now that is some powerful curry.
