Doteko: New Shop In Nishi Ogikubo Serving Miso-Stewed Foods!
Doteko has a second branch in Tokyo! The popular Koenji store now has an address in Nishi Ogikubo. It serves one of Nagoya's specialty called "doteni", a miso stewed dish of pork tripes. Here is more information on this great restaurant!
Feel free to follow favy!
Traditionally, Nagoya's doteni is made by using red miso to make a rich stew of pork entrails. Tripes that are simply grilled yakiniku-style can be quite hard and chewy, however doteni tripes are extremely tender because they are stewed for a very long time.
Doteko is located just a stone throw away from the Nishi Ogikubo South Exit. It has a counter area and two tables and a nice warm and friendly atmosphere.
Doteko's particularity is that it uses its own special delicious Nagoya miso! Unlike the doteni commonly found in Nagoya, the stew here is not as acidic and bitter as the traditional one. Yet it preserves the rich, deep umami flavor that makes doteni so irresistable!
The doteni is then combined with a variety of tasty dishes such as this miso tonkatsu (pork cutlets) one served for 700 yen.
It also has on its menu this amazingly good mabo tofu. The spices of the regular mabo tofu dish combined with the deep richness of Doteko's doteni go incredibly well together! Take the large size for 960 yen!
They also have this simple dish called dote meshi, which is the delicious stew poured over a bowl of warm rice. Try this one to enjoy fully the irresistable flavor of doteni! You can have it in regular or spicy versions for 650 and 680 yen.
If you are a noodle addict, you've got to try their udon doteni bowl (780 yen)! This is a popular version of the dish in Nagoya.
The shop also has a variety of really interesing side orders such as these doteni rice filled inari sushi!
And these super tasty crispy spring rolls filled with rich pork miso.
The store has a variety of nice cocktail drinks such as the salty lemon sour shown on the left. And on the right is an extremely refreshing and healthy green drink made from the leaves of the sweet potato plant. Drinks are under 480 yen!
Doteko collaborates with Nakamo, a Nagoya miso product maker. You can buy these delicious Nagoya-style miso sauces in store!
