The spicy curry restaurant Roka opened in Okubo in 2016 and quickly rose to become one of Tokyo's leading restaurants with long queues.
Its signature dish is a combination of spicy curry and Taiwanese dish 'Lunghi rice', and it is popular for its weekly changing menu, which is always inventive.
The female owner, who continues to run the restaurant energetically and single-handedly after relocating in June 2023, looks back on her life and generously shares the stories and know-how behind her thriving restaurant!
