One of the things about anticipation is that expectations can get overbuilt. Camp Curry did not disappoint me I'm glad to report. I found the restaurant in Shinagawa Station fairly easily and hopped into a short dinner line. The wait staff was really nice and I was quickly handed an English menu when they realized I didn't read Japanese. You basically get to pick a curry type and can then do a few customizations. I ordered a fully-loaded vegetables curry with minced chicken. This is one of the curry places where you do get lots of fresh veggies - it also looked popular with women when I was there too. After seating at the bar, I got to admire the decor. There is a heavy use of rustic woodwork with camp lanterns and other paraphernalia hung up on beams and on the walls. The cooks wear outdoors sun hats and your water comes in a steel camping mug. Your spoon looks like a shovel to help you eat faster :) too. I could see the cooks pan fry my veggies and sauce and then it was served up pretty quickly.
