Ootoya – Complimentary Dessert for UOB Cardholders till 30 Sept 2010

18 08 2010

BFF K and I had a nice meal over at Ootoya last Monday (yes its a backlog due to the start of uni term). I remember the first time I patronized, Ootoya had only recently opened but has since garnered a loyal customer base. There’s no secret to their success, just good old unpretentious nosh and service while keeping prices at a reasonable level.

Currently they are having a promotion for UOB cardholders, giving away a complimentary dessert for every main course ordered.

I ordered the Ootoya Special Dish($15) again, same as my last visit.

It’s not that I’m a boring person who only orders the same food at the same places, if I was I wouldn’t have started this food blog! It’s just that Fried Chicken and Fried Potato Croquette will always hold a special place in this little boy’s heart. I didn’t bother using the dipping sauce for my chicken, it tasted great on it’s own!

Be it Tonkichi or in any other Jap restaurant, K always ends up ordering either the Unagi or Miso Pork Cutlet. This time, it was going to be the Miso Pork Cutlet($16).

I preferred my fried chicken more to the pork cutlet but that’s probably personal preference.

What I like about Ootoya’s fried items is that it doesn’t leave one with an excessively unctuous feel after the meal and I love the little gestures such as serving the fried chicken on the metal grill thingy so that it doesn’t get soggy over the course of the meal.

Due to the UOB promotion, K and myself also got our complimentary desserts!

The Green Tea Ice Cream with Soy Milk Syrup tasted very peranakan (think coconut milk desserts) after we poured in some Gula Melaka given to us. The sweet Gula Melaka helped to balance the slightly bitter green tea jelly and tasteless mochi found at the base of the dessert.

I really loved the mildly sweet Milk Ice Cream though I don’t really have a thing for green tea (mousse in this case) and was too full to eat anymore rice ball desserts (mochi) since it was also present in the previous dessert.

Bon Appetit!
