The new Japanese establishment Goemon Curry opened over the weekend at 29 Kenmare Street. Its debut was of the soft variety, yet still managed a sizeable splash. Indeed, launch was pretty much announced with subtle shill from Mission Chinese guru Danny Bowien.

As previously reported, Goemon Curry is the brainchild of noodle chef Yoshihito Kira. He is the man who helped create the highly-successful pair of Cocoron eateries in the immediate vicinity.

Their arrival comes roughly six months after construction began. Though, still not sure why the company settled on the whole chalkboard look for the exterior.

Much like its Cocoron kin, Goemon Curry boasts its own set of cartoon characters dancing around the menu.
