Usually when I eat at Monster curry I get way too full because I wasn’t Super hungry in the first place. This time, I went when I was starving and it was still too much!!

I had the fish this time as the Pork Katsu always felt too heavy. I was really surprised by how nicely crispy it was on the outside and how soft and juicy the fish was on the inside. Will definitely be ordering the fish again.
I opted for the level 2 spice and it was enough to make my tongue tingle and my nose run a little.

Natto is my favourite thing to add as it adds a nice fermented flavour and breaks the “gelat-ness” that the curry can have.

The lunch special is really worth it. It comes with soup, drink and dessert all for half price!

If you like oily, creamy ramen soups, this one’s for you.
I ordered my soup rich and a friend ordered it normal and he said normal was too rich for him yet mine was just nice so it’s all down to preference.
I was really hoping for a stronger garlic smell and taste (I picked heavy on the garlic) but it did not come through which was a little disappointing. I think it might also be because it’s black garlic and black garlic is just less pungent.

Overall still a very delicious soup!
Definitely give it a try to see if it suits your taste.

I’ve tried their pork kouji once before and had great memories of the taste. This time I tried their steak as well in a set that comprises them both. And honestly, I was surprised that it wasn’t as good as before. Everything was still delicious just not as I’ve remembered. The pork used to have a really nice slight char on them and more sauce.

Set comes with miso soup, refillable rice and chawanmushi.

The chawanmushi although very very small, was amazingly soft and smooth. Absolutely delightful!

I am an avid fan of ootoya and every time I go, I would order Neba Neba which is a combination of all things gooey (natto, okra, grated yam) on top of their homemade tofu.

I can’t get this anywhere else and it always leaves me dreaming for more after I leave.

After years of having this dish, it’s still my favourite dish from the restaurant.

When they described this tea on the menu as “smoky roasted tea”.. they weren’t joking! It has an amazing smoky aroma akin to some sort of woody incense (not great for some, I’m guessing). I loved it and would love to try this hot next time.

Breakfast all the damn time
