As some of you may know, I am a big fan of Ootoya as I stated often that it is one of the best authentic Japanese restaurant I've ever tasted. This Ramadhan month, I went to several breakfasting event with friends.
I just realized that during fasting month, it is really hard to book a restaurant ya?? We tried to book several restaurant (they can be called as well-known with middle to high price) and the result is... they're all full booked. One of the restaurant staff even suggested to book 1 week before! Omg 😮 And I found other restaurant who accept booking if we transfer down payment and order menu via Whatsapp. This thing is fascinating to me.
So, as an Ootoya fan myself, I suggest to eat there hoping it can be booked... and yes! We went to Lotte Shopping Avenue that night which is nearest to our office. We sat inside tatami room, a kind of semi-private room and sit 'lesehan' (what is lesehan in English, anyone knows?)
The service is great as usual like Ootoya Lippo Mall Kemang. It was crowded during breakfasting hour at around 6.30 pm but all the waiters / waitresses are paying attention to each guests. They come quite fast every time we asked refill for our ocha. My suggestion when eating at Ootoya is to order it in set package and not a la carte, since they serve it with miso soup, rice, and pickles / vegetables :)
