A smooth, prescriptive flow of food ordering

First, you look at people contemplating their order:

Sit down, and hand your ticket to the waiter and state your desired spiciness level, based on laminated instructions.

The instructions also mention that you can get take-out curry for later, so you think about it while eating your boiled potato with its slice of butter.

And then, at last, you eat your delicious vegetable curry 🙂

The part that tickles me is that you can actually get as many boiled potatos as you want… but this isn’t included in the instructions! It only mentions the salad options 😉

That’s my favorite curry place in Tokyo — Ethiopia, in the Jimbocho area known for its numerous curry joints.
