I was just thinking to myself yesterday how I could really go for some crumpets with maple syrup. Yum. Sadly, I don’t think crumpets exist outside of Australia (and NZ) and the UK. Today’s brunch review is of the time I went to Roti in Roppongi. Brunch here was really good. I had arranged for a brunch course party plan for our group when we went here back around October 2010. We got an array of different dishes for a brunch banquet – a sit-down shared platter-style brunch. Food here was amazing quality and super tasty. They brought out a few plates of each item to share. First up, was the platter of Mediterranean mezze plate- pita bread, hummus dip, chargrilled vegetables.
Followed up by some popcorn garlic mushrooms with a dipping sauce.
There were also the onion rings.
And one of the most amazing salads I have ever eaten – the stilton, apple and pecan salad. This salad was amazing – apples, grapes, shredded beat, and stilton cheese. And the dressing was lovely.
I was rather besotted with the salad. So light, yet so flavoursome. There was also then platters of pancakes.
In addition to all the above starter shared dishes, everyone could then choose their brunch main dish. I went with the crab cakes.
But you could have gone this option – egg and salmon bagel.
Or the omelette.
Or a club sandwich.
Plus more options from their brunch menu. Tea and coffee also included.
This was quite the brunch feast.
This brunch course was about 4000yen per person which was really good value for all the food we got. And it was good quality food as well. I had negotiated a personalised brunch course with the chef here, so that we would get a choice of 3 entrees, a salad, a brunch main of our choosing, plus tea and coffee. Really good value, because a brunch main and a drink would have cost you about 2000-2500yen alone if you go here for brunch. 40buks for a lot of tasty food was well worth it. Roti is one of the better places for brunch for Tokyo (although maybe just a tad more expensive than some of the other places I’ve been to brunch. But I think it’s worth it.) Indoor and outdoor seating available. A nice place to while away some time on the weekend.
Like most other places in Tokyo, brunch here is only available on weekends and public holidays. You can view the menus here and/or contact them on their website to discuss a menu that suits you. They also do catering. Tabelog entry here.
