Calling all curry fans! A brand new Japanese curry lab has just opened in Coal Drops Yard and with a bright yellow interior it’s hard to miss. Hiden serves authentic Japanese curry made from scratch by kitchen master Hideaki Yoshiyama, who uses a secret blend of spices to increase the heat levels of the traditionally mild curry for the British palate.
This is a proper speciality operation – as many authentic spots are in Japan, so there are only two options on the menu – beef curry and vegan curry (and no sign of kastu yet) – both of which are served with rice and pickles, alongside water, Coke and Ramune Japanese soda. At least that takes all the work of deciding what to have! Be sure to pick up some of the Japanese spicy crisps to take home too. They are banging.
