After my first visit to Ootoya @ Orchard Central a couple of years, I decided to try Ootoya @ Changi City Point, when my colleague and I headed for lunch the other day. Ootoya Japanese restaurant is known to serve authentic home-cooked Japanese food, and that sets it apart from the usual "don", "ramen", "sashimi" or "BBQ" Japanese restaurants we often frequent.
After looking through the menu, I finally found what I wanted (or similar to what I wanted).
We had the Set Lunch, hence came with a Chawanmushi each - I loved the flavorful chawanmushi that came with 3 tiny oysters inside instead of the usual chicken or crabstick! Even my colleague mentioned that the chawanmushi should have been steamed in a quality stock.
I had the Zousui (SGD17.50) - wild grain porridge cooked with oysters, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, lady-fingers, leeks etc, all cooked in soy milk! I added the side bowl of seaweed into it. A delicious dish with nutritious ingredients and bursting with flavors. I could get used to eating this everyday.
My colleague had the Sumi Buta Jyu set (SGD$23.50) - grilled pork rice set - my colleague said that while the taste was smokin' good, and pork was rather succulent, the overall texture was a little dry.
