When coming to Ise city, one thing that most forget is food. I know that this seems like a basic requirement, but it is often overlooked.
Just 700m away from Geku (外宮) is a small curry restaurant, which is unimpressive to look at on entry. With a tired Irrashai (いらっしゃい) a friendly atmosphere is open to you.
There is a reasonable selection of food items from shrimp, chicken, pork curry to plain old rice, the menu is not big but it is good.
In addition to excellent taste, prices are very good as well- 650 yen for Chicken Katsu, miso soup, salad, and rice.
The only problem is the lack of a drinks menu- but there is free water. But when in Rome (or Ise in this case)…
Thank you for reading and happy exploring.
