Murracci’s is a casual Japanese restaurant that focuses on Curry dishes and grilled items. While they have 4 sushi items on the menu, stick to the Japanese-style curry. They have locations in both San Francisco and Los Altos. Last visit was in April 2012.

Muracci’s curry sauce takes 2 days to prepare. The homemade soup stock, along with vegetables, herbs and spices, are simmered for 20 hours, resulting in a thick creamy curry base.

Verdict – Murracci’s serves up very good home style Japanese curry dishes and is a pleasant change from Japanese sushi restaurants. Service could be better though. Nearby Sumika is also very good.

Murracci’s Food Picks:

Muraccis Los Altos chicken katsu

Katsu Curry ($8.95) Pork Cutlet served with Curry Sauce is a signature dish we have to try. Served with your choice of: Mild, Medium, or Hot Curry, White or Brown Rice, and House Special pickles.
A simple dish with a large pork cutlet covered with crispy egg batter coating and tender white meat inside. A silky signature Curry that goes well with the Rice.

Muraccis Los Altos Curry noodles

Chicken Curry Nanban with Shimeji Mushrooms ($9.50 for lunch) Buckwheat eggless noodles, chicken, shimeji mushrooms, green onions, bonito stock, Muracci’s Curry sauce (a meat-based broth) was the weekly special. Tender thin noodles, lots of chopped up chicken, tiny mushrooms, all bathed in their moderately spicy broth. A very well balanced bowl of noodles.

Chicken Curry ($11.75) Grilled Chicken in Curry Sauce with brown rice and a small salad. Not a lot of chicken, but some excellent curry sauce.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Curry Spaghetti ($13.95 dinner) Beef, Spaghetti, Green Peas and Muracci’s curry sauce was a special when we visited.  Decent dish but not as special as the Katsu. The beef was pretty tough.

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
