Gin Curry 銀咖哩

Gin Curry is a Japanese Style Pork Cutlet Curry restaurant situated in the NTU front entrance area in Gong Guan. They sell economical curry sets of varying fried entrees. Most of the set meals are priced around 125 NT, and the most expensive item is their monstrous Mt Fuji Curry Set that goes for 290 NT.  This location can get really packed and the food is not really worth the wait. This would be a nice place for a quick Japanese style curry excursion off peak hours.

The interior is designed in the typical modern Japanese-esque interior design scheme. You got the wooden tables and chairs with dark colors and the Japanese wooden window / divider. The restaurant is kind of small and they don't have a strict protocol for seating so it gets pretty messy. They may be understaffed for peak hour service, so you might want to visit after the rush. This place isn't really worth waiting too long for unless you really really want some Japanese style curry.
Their specialty set is this pork cutlet curry. It comes with a side of salad and a cup of matcha iced milk tea. For the price of 120 NT, you get a good amount of food with a tasty drink to wash it all down. The curry itself tastes like the typical Japanese brown curry, semi-sweet and a little spicy. They don't have any condiments for you to top off your curry with, but that is almost standard in Taiwanese curry restaurants. I've yet to find a place that offers chopped almonds, pickled daikons, or chopped pineapples for you to sprinkle on your curry. Even the curry house in Los Angeles doesn't have all the condiments that some Curry places in Japan provide. The pork cutlet was crispy, but kinda dry. They should have drizzed more sauce on the cutlet "zig-zag" style, but they scrimped on it. The salad was very plain and all the dressing was on the top, so when you got to the bottom you begin to feel like a rabbit biting on raw leaves. This set meal was mediocre, and it was worth the price.
