What we expect when we are dining out? Generally, we crave for delicious food that taste better than homemade food. Hence few restaurants may add some ingredients which are not good for your health, for example too much MSG, oil or salt.
However, thereâ€™s a single Japanese restaurant which serves a good, well balanced meal without excess seasoning but still taste delicious! The restaurantâ€™s name is Ootoya, originated in Tokyo since 1958.
Itâ€™s widely known as the restaurant which serves meal like â€œmotherâ€™s homemade foodâ€.
Ootoya and What's on the menu
Ootoya still spreads affordable and nutritious foods to many cities all over Asia. They prepare â€œTeishokuâ€, which is a set meal with a main dish, miso soup and pickles.
Furthermore, Ootoya also serves proper meal â€œChanto Gohanâ€ (ã¡ã‚ƒã‚“ã¨ã”ã¯ã‚“). This literally means â€œproper mealâ€ in English. The meal is a well-balanced diet that we are supposed to eat every single day.
The food made by your mom is most likely your favourite dish on Earth. And you can find it in Ootoya!
Ootoyaâ€™s meals basically sums up of all a Japanese Motherâ€™s meticulous efforts in preparing a nutritious, well-balanced meal for her family. Mothers are always considerate with our health and well-being. That is what inspires Ootoya in serving the customers.
Eating is a Positive Thing
The restaurant believes that â€œyou are what you eatâ€. All of us should eat healthy, in order to be happy.
However, Ootoya wants to educate the customers that healthy food doesnâ€™t necessary always mean eating only salad. More often than not, we are skipping meals and avoiding salt, sugar and fat. But this perspective has made eating as a negative thing.
Ootoya has 60 years of knowledge about how we supposed to eat and encourages us to understand Shokuiku Philosophy (é£Ÿå“å“²å¦).
Every ingredient can complement each other, for instance, the ginger in a pork dish aids absorption of the nutrients from the pork!
In fact, Ootoya regularly holds seminars about nutrition or food education in Japan to teach participants to achieve healthy life through their diet.
"When we understand the nutritions of the food we eat, we can make better decisions on what we eat."
Ootoya has a strong presence in Southeast Asia. Other than Singapore, they have branches in Indonesia, Taiwan and Thailand. Apart from location, Ootoya can retain the same taste as in Japan as they use the same delicious sauce made in Japan!
