Motsu-ya – Hearty & Healthy Offal-Based Japanese Dishes
Nestled on the second floor of Fortune Center, Motsu-ya focuses on chicken and beef offal-based soups and dishes. Motsu-ya is also opened by the same people behind the successful and perpetually crowded Nobu-ya on level 1 of Fortune Center. Motsu-ya’s signature is the motsunabe which is a popular stew made from beef, pork tripe, and other offals. Most items on their menu are also derived from offal so it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. We went around 6 in the evening for dinner. Their lunch menu features more common Japanese food such as oyako-don and chirashi.
Unique items on their dinner menu include Motsuni (braised chicken offal), Yaki Udon (sautéed Udon with beef offal), Wagyu Steak (100g) and Paitan Ramen (ramen with chicken and vegetables in chicken stock).
We ordered the signature Motsunabe ($30). Motsu-ya uses a miso-based soup with collagen. The murky broth contains tripe, offal, tendons and intestines. As the broth comes to a boil, you’ll realize that the broth thickens and slowly turns into a stew. Expect a generous serving of spring onions, bean sprouts, mushrooms and tofu. The stew is good for 2 people but we found it very filling and were not able to finish it. You can opt to add more 豆瓣酱 (chilli bean sauce) or chilli flakes to spice up your motsunabe. The right amount for us was about 2-3 spoonful of 豆瓣酱 and a light dusting of chilli flakes.
We also ordered a bowl of Paitan Ramen. The ramen boasts thick noodles, a peppery broth, and a heap of vegetables. The use of quail eggs was surprising, but we enjoyed them. Did you know that quail eggs are also more nutritious than chicken eggs?
If you love offal, you have to make a trip to Motsu-ya. Do share with us your favourite dishes after you’ve dined here!
