How Earvin formed the curry-loving unit “Tandoories” with Naoto Takenaka and Koji Okura.



Recommendations for curry restaurants in Tokyo.

Celeina: So you like curry anyway. Are you mainly in the Tokyo area?

Earvin: We have only been to Tokyo, so the three of us in Tandoori’s would like to go to Kansai and other regions, and finally to India, Thailand, and the rest of the world.

Takano: You have wonderful ambitions, but if you had to recommend a curry shop in Tokyo, what would it be?

Earvin: No, there are too many to mention.

Takano: Do you have any?

Earvin: By the way, the hat I am wearing today is a cap from a curry shop called “chamame” in Tokyo Metropolitan Iemasa.

Celeina: You are wearing a nice cap.

Earvin: The T-shirt you were wearing yesterday was from a curry shop called Oiwa Shokudo in Nishiogikubo.

Takano: Chamame in Tokyo Metropolitan Ikebukuro and Oiwa Shokudo in Nishiogikubo.

Earvin: Spice Kitchen Moona in Shimokitazawa, Hendrix Curry Bar in Gaienmae, Cafe Haiti in Nakano, Malologa Bhawan in Araiyakushi, Old NEPAL TOKYO in Gotokuji, and many others.

Takano: I’d like to ask you a lot of questions, but I’d like to play a song here. Earvin-san, what song would you like everyone to listen to together on the radio at this time?

Earvin: Lately, I like quiet songs. I only listen to records at home, but I chose this song from a song that I noticed I liked after I dropped the needle on the record. I chose “My Foolish Heart” by Bill Evans, a song that makes me feel sad at dusk.
