Torarakuya is a Japanese-style curry and coffee shop. It was opened by a team consisting of a mother and siblings raised in Taiwan, hoping to carry on the flavor of the Japanese-style curry that they learned how to prepare from their grandfather who had immigrated to Kyushu, Japan.

The vegetables, pickled in soy sauce, and the pickled Japanese leeks are imported from Wajima, in Japan’s Ishikawa Prefecture, the home of the owners’ younger sister and her family. Side dishes are available for 15 NTD each. Many of these are normally provided free of charge in Japan, but the ingredients cost money to import and the flavor of the pickled Japanese leeks is different from the sweetly pickled ones to which many Taiwanese are accustomed. Therefore, some Taiwanese customers tend not to finish them off, resulting in them being made available for a small charge instead. The soy-pickled vegetables, crunchy and with a fragrance of perilla, are made without the use of red dyes.

The curry selection is a simple one, with a beef curry (200 NTD) as well as a pork and chicken mixed curry (200 NTD) on offer. Heaped into deep, boat-shaped white dishes, one look at the presentation brings back memories of how curry was served in the old days in Japan, and the mellow, rich sweetness, the spice and the overall flavor are all unmistakably Japanese, matching perfectly with the pickled leeks and their refreshing yet not overbearing tanginess.

The name “Torarakuya” comes from the birth year of the owner, Mr. Gao, and his two younger twin sisters, all three of whom were born in the year of the tiger (“tora” in Japanese). “In Japanese, ‘rakuya(gakuya)’ refers to the backstage, a place that is relaxed, so I named this shop ‘Torarakuya’ in the hope that it will be a place where friends can gather together to relax, chat and take a break from their busy lives,” he says.


咖哩則走簡約路線,共有牛肉咖哩(200元) 以及豬肉與雞肉的混合咖哩(200元)兩種選擇。盛裝在有深度的白色船形容器之中的咖哩,從外觀看上去十分具有日式的懷舊風格,實際嘗起來則可以同時感受到溫和濃郁的甜味與辣味,在味道上也完全是道地的日本風。兩樣日本小菜福神漬和蕗蕎帶有清爽又恰到好處的酸味與微甜,和咖哩一起品嘗非常對味。
