Kure High Collar Mess Hall (呉ハイカラ食堂)

The Kure High Collar Mess Hall is a café-restaurant located about a three-minute walk from Kure Station. The restaurant is reminiscent of the inside of a submarine and offers a variety of dishes such as Kure’s famous “Maritime Curry.” The Kure High Collar Mess Hall serves the same curry served on the Sōryū-class submarines, which was originally a Friday dinner for submarine crews.

At the Kure High Collar Mess Hall, you can enjoy Western dishes such as omelet rice and teriyaki chicken, as well as the famous Maritime Curry, which is still eaten by active submarine crews. It’s the most popular menu item, and you can eat it in the restaurant or buy a package to take home and cook as a souvenir. At the restaurant, the curry is served on metal plates and with utensils just as it is served on board the submarines.
