Japan Niigata Food Curry

8 November 2019

Once more to the station

Coco curry in Niigata

Last night in Niigata. I was late heading out after attending to an urgent work situation. Where to go? Oh I know, the station.

If you face out of the busy side of the station, head left, its more interesting and busier than heading right.
Despite heading to the busy side, I still ended up at the old favourite, Coco Curry. I like it there, plus I was starving and I know they have big serves.
On my way back, I got back on the BRT rapid commuter bus service, and watched a drunk salary man negotiate the difficult task of boarding the bus, swiping his card and sitting down. After plenty of staggers and a thankfully vomitless attempt at vomiting, he sat in a priority seat, a block of 3, then fell sideways and laid on all 3 seats. Me and my crew of fellow bus riders kept out distance.
Unfortunately this included a little old lady, who now had no seat, the seats up the back require walking up a couple of stairs. So of course, when the bus stopped, she went flying, landing on drunk man, who popped up suddenly, yelled once, then immediately laid back down and kept sleeping.

Tomorrow, the long slow train ride over the mountains.

Here is the bus catching area. Always a hive of activity. A team of brave men with whistles stand behind buses as they reverse in and create a deafening cacophony of bird like noises emanating from their metallic shiny mouth pieces.

I have forgone the liver, and gone with vegetables, 10/10 spiciness. They always ask you, I always say 10 and point at the 10 chillis on the Japanese menu. They always go and get the English menu and make me point and say it again.
