Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit Tokyo: Ootoya

Visit Tokyo: Ootoya

While in the Shinjuku area, we were looking for a place to eat when we stumbled across a menu for Ootoya, and saw that kids meals were offered, so we headed there.

Ootoya is a popular chain restaurant, with locations in Thailand, Taiwan, and New York.

It was very busy, and after a bit of a wait, our family was finally seated along a counter.

Unfortunately, when I began to order, I was told that that particular location doesn't offer kids meals. Luckily there were other items on the menu that I knew my kids would eat.

I ordered the Chicken Cutlet on Rice with Special Sauce + Warm Udon set to share with one of my kids.  The cutlet was served with a sauce using Hatcho Miso.  Thick pieces of chicken were perfectly fried, and the sauce was a nice combination of sweet and savory.

The fried chicken was very delicious.  Its flavored with a special shoyu, and served with a spice mix.

Although I was bummed that there were no kids meals (after looking back at the menu we initially saw on display at the entrance of the building, we noticed the prices were blacked out - the entire photos of the kids meals should have been blocked out!), the food and service were both great.
