The beginning of "Grilled curry" is moji port in Kitakyushu City,
Fukuoka Prefecture in the 1930s.
At that time, I put eggs in the oven and baked in the leftover curry, indeed fragrant, delicious finish, in the surprise and the impression, it was put out as a menu of the shop, and there remains anecdote that it was popular... Moji port is located at the northernmost end of Kyushu, and the port town which prospered as the international trade port from the Meiji era to Showa era. Foreign ship from about 25 years after the war and mainly Showa, because a lot of crew etc. were in and out, it developed as a Western culture region quickly, and "grilled curry" was born, and it spread as a home cooking in a local dish.
Ancient grilled Curry (my definition) is cooked in an oven with rice and
curry sauce placed in a heat-resistant pot, and baked in eggs (covered
with cheese that melts like the yolk does not burst). The baked curry around
1955 was not a melting cheese, but was using process cheese, this is the
original "old grilled curry". After the patent was acquired,
it will be taken up by a lot of media such as the Yokohama Curry Museum
opening in 1998. The recipe for baking curry changed with the times, and
the egg yolk was used for the purpose of covering it like not bursting
at that time, and the cheese of a small amount melted. But now, I often
see the versatile cheese like the Doria gratin, the grilled curry that
I patented is intended to condense the curry sauce by baking, to taste
more profound. It is still available at the time of the recipe.
The curry of our store is a European curry. Please taste the "grilled curry" which expresses the deep taste and aroma with the brown Lou which was carefully stir-fry and homemade bouillon together.
The Kushida Shrine is located in the Riverside shopping district.
The curry taste of "Curry Honpo" was the origin that my mother
made. Circa 1926, the home oven was released in the Japan, and because
father had been an electric shop, I remember that the introduction of the
electric appliances was early in the house in Moji port where I was born
and grew up, and the oven was often used for home cooking. When I became
a primary school student at that time, it is not certain whether the smell
of the fragrant curry "grilled curry" in the room or the insect
of the belly crowed though mother's having the leftover curry in the oven
is burnt, and the thing at that time is recalled still. "Grilled curry"
is a dish with potatoes and
carrots melted in pulp, eggs and a small amount of cheese on the egg yolk
only, and is considered as a dish to enjoy the change by baking the original
taste of curry sauce. I have been eating "grilled curry" for
a long time. When opening a shop in Orio, Yahatanishi-ku, Kitakyushu City
in November, 1979, it is a dish of the menu. The curry is a big hit by
an explosive by the magazine and the TV coverage in the open, not one year
passed. However, it was a continuation of the trial and error making broth
soup which became the source of curry sauce of "grilled curry",
and the concoction of the spice every day. When I was not satisfied with
the taste, I threw the soup made in a large pot many times. I will not
be able to do anything that I cannot consent to... it is possible to make
broth soup that is the ideal one of these years, leaving Kitakyushu in
1998, "Grilled curry" to determine the match in Fukuoka to seek
more possibilities. An offer comes from the "Grilled Curry" specialty
Shop (gaya miles) in Kawabata-cho, Hakata-ku, Fukuoka, and four years later
(Heisei 2002) from the Yokohama Curry Museum. The Curry Museum Hall of
Fame was played in 2005, and "Grilled curry" came to be known
nationally, but it was a real meaning in the starting line from now on,
and it was a moment when "grilled curry" which I made was born.
