Go Go Curry, a fast-casual Japanese chain focused on plates of crispy katsu and curry, will soon open its first Houston location.
A representative for the restaurant tells Eater that it is set to debut at 9889 Bellaire Boulevard, inside the Dun Huang Plaza, in October. As Eater reported back in June, the chain first opened in Japan’s Kanazawa, where the thick, rich style of curry sauce that Go Go Curry serves originated. The chain made its American debut in 2007 with a location in New York City’s Times Square, and its owners have seriously high hopes for expansion — as many as 55 outposts in Canada and the United States are expected to open by 2022.
At Go Go Curry, dishes start with rice that is slathered in curry sauce, then paired with proteins like pork katsu, sausage, shrimp, or tofu. On the side, diners can add natto (fermented soybeans), cheese, and hard-boiled eggs, along with the traditional heap of crisp shredded cabbage. For serious curry enthusiasts and competitive eaters, the chain’s “world champion curry,” described as the biggest curry platter in the country, involves a giant scoop of rice piled high with four sausages, two fried pork cutlets, two chicken cutlets, two shrimp, and two eggs.
Go Go Curry will open its doors on October 25, and will serve lunch and dinner from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
