Bangladeshi Curry Hyder


Bangladeshi Curry Hyder is another feather in Fukuoka’s already broad, international culinary cap. Chef Hyder started out serving his curry at events, where it proved to be so successful that he decided to open his own restaurant. Located in an old apartment building in Kego, Hyder’s self-titled establishment now cooks up a wide variety of South Asian delights. Most popular is his “herbal curry”, which is made according to an old family recipe. Not overly spicy, it contains a subtle blend of 16 different spices and herbs, many of which are renowned for their wholesome and restorative properties. Further health benefits are ensured by Hyder’s insistence on using produce free of pesticides and artificial additives. He also runs Ketoy.jp, a non-profit organization dedicated to alleviating poverty in Bangladesh. Fair trade handicrafts and colorfully dyed scarves are on sale in the restaurant, with a portion of takings going towards helping the needy. A chance to enjoy a delicious, healthy curry and do a good deed? Sounds like an opportunity too good to miss!

バングラデシュ。国名を聞いても、どんな国なのか想像できる人は少ないだろう。ガンジス川の下流、インドの右隣に位置し、日本と同じく米が主食。ポピュラーな料理はカレーだ。そんな南アジアの国の文化を肌で感じられる店が警固の古アパートの一室にある。看板メニューはバングラデシュ出身のハイダルさんが母親の味を再現した薬膳カレー。さほど辛くはないが食べ進むにつれ不思議と汗が出る。代謝を促すジンジャー、健胃薬としても使われるクミンなど本場から取り寄せるスパイス&ハーブを16種も使っているから、とハイダルさん。化学調味料や添加物は使わず、無農薬の野菜を厳選するなどヘルシーなのもうれしい。元々、イベント時にしか作っていなかったカレーを、店を構えて提供しているのにはもう一つ理由がある。ハイダルさんはバングラデシュの貧しい人々を援助する特定非営利活動法人KETOY.jpの理事長も務める。鮮やかに染め上げられたストールなどバングラデシュの手工芸品を、中間搾取のないフェアトレード価格で販売。売り上げの一部は現地の子どもたちの教育の手助けなどに活用されるシステムだ。おいしいカレーを味わい、雑貨を手に取り、バングラデシュという国を知るきっかけにしてみるのはいかがだろう。
