Panya Cafe Curry is an awesome cafe about two minutes walk from my Shimokitazawa apartment. I love this place so much. It's a tiny ten-seater with the most lovely of atmospheres and some of the best curry I've ever tasted. Today it was a one man show run buy the cutest girl with giant odango hair, so while she prepares your curry there's enough time to play 'spot the alpaca' hidden on shelves and walls throughout the cafe. If you get sick of 'spot the alpaca' you can also make use of the provided origami paper squares located on the chopstick holder.  This place is super popular and can be very busy at times (Mr Y once waited 30 minutes for our takeaway)  but it's well worth the wait! If you're in the area pop on in!
