POINT

A restaurant which serves curry in a 160-year-old traditional house located on top of a steep mountain, which in itself is already exciting, but what is even more exciting is that the menu changes every week. By looking at the spices arranged on the walls, one may think that the curry would be super spicy but in reality, it can even be enjoyed by girls who prefer mildly spicy curry. According to the restaurant owner, "The spices themselves are not hot." The delicious taste of the curry which can even be enjoyed by girls who don't like spicy food will guarantee that you will visit this place again and again. On a clear day, you may even be able to see the view of the ocean from here!?
