Japanese-style curry never quite became a fad, but places like Wako have had a steady following for years in Koreatown. A new competitor is now open in the large City Center plaza on the corner of 6th and Alexandria, just a few steps from one of Wako's smaller outlets called CoCo Ichibanya, which has a location tucked away in Brentwood. The curry donkatsu specialist is known for its ultra spicy options, though combos offer everything from beef and chicken to a slew of vegetables. No word on whether delivery will be available like it is at the Brentwood spot, but with all the offices nearby it makes sense.  Coco Ichibanya grand opened on October 9.
