Kikkoman Curry Sauce with Meat and Vegetables Ginza Style

I love curry, and I love the convenience of someone cooking it for me, so I was thrilled to see all three Kikkoman Curry Sauces "Ginza Style" with meat and vegetables on the shelf at the 99 Cent Only Store. I didn't expect too much coming from a can, and honestly my low expectations were not exactly exceeded.

So far I have only tried the chicken, but it tastes kinda like Campbell's beef soup with a little curry added. I'm guessing all the varieties will taste this way. The thing I hate about soups and stews in a can is the mushy vegetables. I love raw carrots, but carrots in a can are a real turn off for me.

That said, these curries in a can aren't that bad. They will do in a pinch, but they will never replace that great Thai place down the street.

  1. My mother was full Japanese, born in Kobe (rip). I'm, half, born in Tokyo. This Kikkoman product, especially the beef curry, reminds me of Dinty Moore stew with a bit more sweetness and only a hint of curry. I should know what curry tastes like. My mother made curry from scratch all the time while I was growing up. I make my own. Thought I'd pick up a can as convenient "comfort" food but it's not even close to the real deal. Don't waste your time getting this.
