The beloved Japanese standard, served on a bed of rice.
Champion’s Curry started in 1961 in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa in the central region of Japan. With 31 locations throughout the country, the company has grown into Japan’s fourth-largest fast-casual curry restaurant chain. The flagship restaurant in Little Tokyo is designed to create a casual “Curry Diner” atmosphere that resembles the ones in Japan. However the menu will be specific to California, in addition to curry-rice, that includes a choice of pork, chicken, beef patty, or fish katsu (cutlet), Champion’s will offer a curry dip sandwich, inspired by Los Angeles' iconic French Dip sandwich. The Panko crusted cutlet is sandwiched between custom made brioche bread that is then dipped in Champion’s thick curry sauce. The curry dip sandwich is already a hit for their SteelCraft location, which opened in June. Additionally, the fish katsu curry and grilled vegetable curry will be exclusive to the Little Tokyo location.
