Overflowing Omelet at Curry Shop Bon Goût is Tokyo’s Crown Jewel of Eggy Goodness

In 2020, a restaurant named “Gourmet Curry Bon Goût NEWoMan Shinjuku store” (hereinafter referred to as “Bon Goût”) opened inside the NEWoMan Shinjuku shopping complex, directly connected to Shinjuku Station.

The shop’s curry dishes, created by a chef with 40 years of experience in Western cuisine, have garnered attention on social media and turned the restaurant into a popular spot with long lines of customers daily.

One particular standout dish at the restaurant is the “Omelet hamburg Curry,” which features a creamy omelet topping the curry.

The creamy omelet-topped curry is a dazzling dish on social media

In order to achieve the perfect fluffy omelet, precise control of the cooking temperature and a wealth of experience are required of the chef.

The time it takes from shaping the eggs into a beautifully half-cooked omelet to when the chef places it on the plate is just a matter of seconds. This highlights the chef’s skill and expertise.

Once they pour in the rich, spiced curry sauce specially crafted by Bon Goût, the dish is done.

Then, when you cut into the omelet with a spoon, the semi-cooked interior starts to melt, adding to the overall decadence of the dish.

Videos of the Omelet hamburg Curry have been widely posted on social media, and really racked up the “likes.”

The tantalizing visual has captivated the appetites and attention of many people.

Of course, the appeal of the Omelet hamburg Curry isn’t limited to its visual presentation alone.

It features a large Japanese hamburger steak patty made exclusively from the high-quality pork brand “Azumino Genki Pork,” known for its melt-in-your-mouth succulence, making the dish incredibly satisfying in terms of portion size.

Compared to patties made with ground beef, this patty has a plump and juicy flavor.

On top of that, you can really feel the density and firmness of the meat, providing both tenderness and a satisfying bite.

Additionally, Bon Goût uses a curry roux referred to as European-style curry. It’s based on brown sauce and incorporates vegetables and butter, resulting in a mild and creamy flavor.

This balance of spice and mildness makes it popular among a wide range of customers, from children to adults.

The special roux at Bon Goût, enriched with butter, adds depth to the curry

For those looking for a little more spice, they can take advantage of the complimentary toppings available at the table.

Along traditional toppings such as fukujinzuke (Japanese sweet pickles) and pickled shallots, there is also a special blend of nine spices, including cayenne pepper powder and garam masala. If you prefer a bit more heat, try adding these to your meal.

Boldy topped with a chicken leg, the Chicken Curry is also a big hit

It’s not just the Omelet hamburg Curry, but the Chicken Curry, a curry topped with large, succulent chicken leg, that’s one of Bon Goût’s most recommended dishes.

The seasoning for the chicken legs is kept simple featuring ingredients like garlic, salt, and pepper, which complements the depth of flavor in Bon Goût’s roux, which is already enriched with plenty of butter.

Moreover, since the chicken legs are roasted in-house just before serving, they are piping hot. The crispy texture of the skin is sure to whet your appetite.

On the table, you’ll find not only spoons but also forks and knives available for your convenience

Not only spoons, but also forks and knives are provided on the table. While you can enjoy the curry and rice by cutting the chicken with a fork and knife, if you want to savor the delicious crispiness directly, biting right into it might be the way to go.

The spacious interior is perfect for groups of people.

Located inside the NEWoMan Shinjuku complex, directly connected to Shinjuku Station, Bon Goût is close to the comedy theater, Lumine the Yoshimoto.

Because of that, it’s quite common for performers from the nearby theater to order delivery or take-out from Bongu.

This restaurant, which has a considerable fan base in the entertainment industry, has been popular since its opening, with a continuous stream of customers.

Thanks to its convenient location right near Shinjuku Station, it’s said that one-third of the customers come from overseas.

Many groups of family and friends visit, and Bon Goût offers a variety of seating options, including counter seats, spacious sofa seats, and table seats, making it convenient for all types of diners.

With its delicious flavors and visually striking dishes, Bongu is likely to continue captivating many people in the future. Along with its social media buzz, it should attract even more customers.
