Curry bread (カレーパン, karē pan) is a popular Japanese food. An amount of Japanese curry is wrapped in a piece of dough, with the dough coated in bread crumbs, and deep fried.[1] On occasion it is baked instead of deep fried, but deep frying is the most common method of cooking. Curry bread is usually found in bakeries and convenience stores.

In popular culture[edit]

Karē pan man ("Curry bread man") is one of the superheroes in Anpanman. He has a head made out of curry bread.[2]

Curry buns were also cooked by Sebastian in the anime Black Butler.
