Camp is one of those hipster, organic, hole-in-the-wall places that you usually expect to find in Shimo-Kitazawa. But, this place is in Yoyogi, hidden in the basement. It only has four tables, and there is usually a queue out the front. Their curries have enough veggies for the whole day, and there are vegetarian options (rare for Tokyo). They are a little heavy on the Cayenne Pepper, so it can make the faint-hearted foodie weep a little. A word of warning, there is little difference between the no-spice level and the first level of spice. An interesting quirk of the place is that all the untensils are shaped like garden shovels, which for me was a little weird. My Mother always scolded me about shovelling my food… “but Mum! The spoon is a shovel!!!!”
