New Rose : The Bottom Line
New Rose is a long way for most people to come for a curry and craft beer but it’s nice to have some extra options when you’re in the area. The food is very good and New Rose has some local craft beer, mostly from Passific Brewing in Chigasaki – so why not come down to the Shonan Area, spend some time on the beer and then pop in here for a late dinner and beers.
New Rose : The Full Review
I had heard about New Rose from a friend (Thanks David!) and knew that the combination of curry and craft beer was worth trying out – just take Himalaya Table in Kanda, Tokyo for a great option in Tokyo – but there was one issue. New Rose is a bit of a trek from Hiratsuka station, about 30 mins on foot to be precise so I thought about combining a trip to the place combined with a slowish bike ride around the area.
New Rose opened in November 2019, and is located on the banks of the Hanamizu river – love that name as it roughly translates to “snot” in English but there isn’t any snot.
New Rose : Atmosphere & Interior
New Rose is quite a small place with seats for 10 people around the bar counter. In fact, I was stuck right at the end of the bar, and still couldn’t get a good enough picture of the whole place inside. The place was very busy when I went, but that was just at the tail end of the lunch time rush hour, though there were still people queuing to get inside for some late lunch.
The whole place is non-smoking and there is also not a table charge in New Rose.
New Rose : Beer & Tap Information
On the day I went to New Rose, there were two taps of craft beer on, with one beer from Passific Brewing and another from Yggdrasil Brewing, which is just up the road in Hiratsuka. There are also some cans and bottles and available for sale though I stuck to the draught beers. The beers come in two sizes: half US pint (230 ml) for 770 yen and full US pint (473 ml) for 1,320 yen. There wasn’t any option for a takeaway beer nor any beer flights but that is kind of a moot point when there are just two beers on tap.
New Rose : Food Information
The food at New Rose is primarily based around Japanese style curry though with a twist of other nationalities represented. With it being Japanese curry, it means that you’re going to get lots of sauce and rice, but very little meat with your dish. There are a few side dish options for vegetarians but as most of the menu is in Japanese you’d be hard pressed to notice them. Thankfully all of the prices include tax.
