At the incredibly tacky, yet surprisingly popular Yokohama Curry Museum, a curry-flavoured cocktail is now available. The drink is called Karetini, and is based on gin. But to live up to its billing it contains curry spices and red pepper.
I have to admit that I’m not a big cocktail fan, but this new concoction sounds particularly unappealing. Plus an official of the museum claims, “it will cause you to perspire” which is not something I generally look for in an alcoholic beverage.
Lets just hope it’s not one of those cold sweats that usually precede projectile vomiting.
Hey man i just wanted to let you know that i love your site. Ever since i found it i come to it at least once a day. Great stuff my man, keep it coming.
Ahh yes, Yokohama, known worldwide for its curries.

The Yokahama Curry Museum is a blast. Try eating a differnt curry from each region of Japan (the baked gratin-like curry is tasty), buy some natto curry in the shop, and before getting back on the train for Tokyo, hit Chinatown for a five course meal. Oishi des-ne?
