Ootoya Japanese Restaurant” located at Orchard Central. This restaurant is nicely designed as they make used of their area well even though they do not have much space for usage.
Sumitoridon @ $11.50 (Alacarte) / $14.50 (Set)
Sumitoridon description on the menu is “Rice bowl with charcoal grilled chicken & Sweet sauce” with information on how much calories you are getting if you are to order this dish.
Very considerate of this restaurant to provide this information as Singaporean are all going toward a healthy diet and these information will sure be very helpful to all people especially those who are looking out on how much Calories they are taking.
The overall taste of this dish is nice but I think the meat are a bit tough and it the sauce is not really nice.
Torisalad @ $13.00 (Alacarte) / $18.00 (Set)
Charcoal Grilled Chicken Salad with Basil Sauce
This dish is being served using a large tray with nice presentation to make our stomach asking when to start eating it. For calories wise, it is 567kcal for alacarte and 863kcal for set meal (Unlimited serving of white or Gokoku rice for set meal). I love the way they mix salad together with the grilled chicken meat as I love to eat salad too.
As mentioned earlier, I think the overall taste is nice due to their skill in mixing the sauce and for this dish, the salad and sauce helped to enhance the overall taste. For the grilled chicken, I hope they can make it more tender and juicer in future as the texture is a bit too tough in my opinion.

Charcoal Grilled Chicken with red Vinegar
I really think the chef of this restaurant really knows how to make nice sauce as they really helps to enhance the overall taste of their dishes. The red vinegar sauce is a bit sourish but compensate the plain chicken taste which makes this very nice to go with their white or Gokoku rice (I eaten 2 bowls of rice which I rarely do so) and their eggs are nicely done too. Good job for the chef.
White and Gokoku Rice
The difference between White Rice and Gokoku rice. Gokoku rice is a combination of brown rice, barley, black sesame, and corn which contains great vitamins, minerals and vegetable fibre that our body needs. (Enlarged from image)

Gokoku Rice - 244 Kcal
