Ootoya (Suntec City Mall)

AsianJapanese
For those who thought Ootoya is just a normal restaurant jumping onto the bandwagon of the highly lucrative niche in Japanese cuisine, you are so wrong. It has its origins back in Japan and prides on serving authentic Japanese home cooked fare to the general public since 1958!

Lovely Dinner

Had a lovely dinner at this Ootoya branch with friends. We got there early and benefited from the quieter environment and great service. The calm went pretty soon as other customers streamed in, clear indication of the good food we were about to tuck in. Unfortunately, the service promptness dropped a tad as well as the service staff were overwhelmed. Kudos to them to still try to provide a good level of service e.g. unprompted top of tea, service with a smile etc.

The food was great. Not your typical Japanese. Had the torotoroni (steamed clam rice with soft egg tofu soup). Light, healthy but delicious though if you are a big eater, go for something else. Friends had a Katsu Toji (breaded pork katsu stew in a claypot) which was really yummy, though a tad salty if you don't have rice, and a demi korokke (pork croquette) which came with two huge croquettes which were deep fried to perfection.

Each set meal (except the torotoni) came with a choice of rice (5 grain, with seaweed or with sardine flakes), miso soup and two sides. The miso soup and rice were free flow, though, we didn't order a second helping of rice because were saving up space for dessert.

Dessert was a shared helping of their amritsu macha - macha (green tea) ice cream with red beans, mochi and green tea jelly in chilled soy milk. heavenly!

All in, a great place for japanese with a difference.

And thing is they dont have this and dont have that. they can run out of white rice(what?) and as for dessert, wanted to try the

Quality Japanese

Came along for lunch and chose one of my favourite - oyako don. Very pleasant grilled chicken with egg over sushi rice. Nice nourishing flavours it's an enjoyable dish! The set includes a tofu/salmon/broccoli side dish and miso soup ($15.50++). Service/ambience all very good. And 20% discount
