Legendarily Historic Curry Restaurant, "Murugi"

Perhaps people working in the place now in 2023 are the second or the third generation of the founder.

The restaurant opened its doors in 1951, and since then, it has remained an iconic curry place among Dogenzaka locals and people across Tokyo and the country.


My mother was about 4-5 years old when taken by her grandma (my great grandma), who would work as a telephone exchange operator for 電電公社 (Den-den Kosha, now NTT) back then in Ichigaya. Mum is now 71, so you can imagine it was ancient. As a child, the curry must have been too spicy, so the memory must have vividly stayed forever with her. 

Indian "curree."

On a weekday's slightly post-lunch time of around 13:30,
still, many fans were enjoying the dishes.

Rice is served like Mt. Fuji.
Their menu is quite simple: chicken curry with/without boiled egg slices!

An English-speaking gentleman and two ladies working in the restaurant are friendly and welcoming. Yumminess and kindness vibes are guaranteed.
