Muracci’s Japanese Curry & Grill
Neighborhood: Financial District

I’ve had Muracci’s a few times, but I’ve never been into the restaurant until recently. It’s quite a trek from my office, so I usually had a friend pick it up for me. ☺ Muracci’s is famous for its curry dishes, specifically the katsu curry that was on the 7×7 list 2 years in a row.
There’s really only room for 4 people to sit in this restaurant. It’s more of a order-to-go type of place. I usually order the food and take it over to Crocker Galleria to eat. Get here early because there can be a long wait during peak lunch time.
I’ve tried the salmon curry over rice and the curry ramen. Both are filling and rich, so pace yourself!
Grilled Salmon Curry w/brown rice – My gut would’ve ordered the katsu curry, but I had to watch out for my poor body that’s been taking a toll on this food blog. So, I contently purchased the salmon curry for $9.25. Crazy expensive for Japanese curry. I have to admit the size of the fish looked pretty pathetic sitting on top of the rice. It was so small! I poured the container of curry over my meal and dug in. The curry was spicy, velvety and rich. I don’t believe I had any chunks of carrots or beef in my curry, which is usually added at other Japanese curry spots. The curry was definitely delicious, but I think the curry at Hotei on Irving is very much comparable at a total cost of only $6.95.
Overall, I think Muracci’s serves up great curry. I just don’t think it’s worth the price for what you get.
