Cooking with Anime: Strawberry Curry from Persona 5

The dubious combination of Strawberry and Curry... will it help your ally, or SABOTAGE them?!


It is important, in times of battle and mortal combat, to take care of your friend and allies. You have to make sure the entire party is healthy enough to make it through the battle, or you could be in real trouble. And that is EXACTLY why you need to consider this strawberry curry as a serious way to boost health in PERSONA 5! It gives 100 HP points. Of course, your defenses will be lowered as well, but hey, this curry is just a bit double-sided, that's all. 



When I first came across this item, I was intrigued. I've heard of strawberry curry before from other people who have been to Japan and tasted "wacky" Japanese snacks. It always sounded kind of terrible, but through playing this game, I had to wonder.


Could strawberry curry be good?


As it turns out, YES! Emphatically yes! I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this curry. I have to say, it's more a dessert curry than one I'd eat for lunch or dinner, but it's really a unique take on a recipe you've definitely tried before. The strawberries melt and slump down into the curry, adding an sweet-sour zing, which is mellowed by the brown sugar and butter. The curry plays nicely against the sweet, and tastes even better over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 




This curry is pretty potent, but surprisingly delicious. It'll disappear quickly, if only because your friends will be amazed you managed to take such a dubious-sounding dish GOOD.
