While airports are generally not renowned for their food options, O’Cha offers some relief from fast food burgers, fries, pizza, sandwiches and chicken concoctions. It is more of a food dispenser than a restaurant, with food prepared to order in front of your eyes, served in take-away containers, and patrons invited to partake at tables in the food court. The food is tasty, fresh, and makes a wonderful change and good accompaniment to people-watching while awaiting your departure time.
“Don” is derived from donburi, which means rice bowl dish in Japanese. At O’Cha don can be ordered with beef, vegetables, chicken, salmon or shrimp. The latter three are prepared teriyaki style, in which the meat is broiled or grilled in a sweet soy sauce marinade. All are served over a bowl of steamed rice. A beef curry rice bowl can also be had.
Oodles of Noodles – Hot or Cold
“Soba” is a type of thin Japanese noodle made from buckwheat flour. It may be served chilled with a dipping sauce, or in a hot broth as a noodle soup. “Udon” is similar, but is a thicker buckwheat noodle. All are served at O’Cha. Chilled soba is known as yakisoba, and is served with tasty sauce. Hot soba and udon are served with a choice of tempura – deep fried, lightly battered vegetables and seafood – or beef. Traditional miso soup and sushi in the form of California rolls are also on the menu.
