Ototo is the pop-up restaurant devoted to sando in the Marais area. On the menu, this cult Japanese street-food dish in several recipes to enjoy all summer around!

It is hard not to be intrigued by the bright yellow decoration of this small eatery set rue des Ecouffes. Ototo is the latest creation by Arthur Cohen and Olivier Léone, following izakaya Onii-San – which is the literal translation of Japanese word ototo.

With this new temporary place, the duo shines a light on Japanese street-food, and especially sando sandwich, in a pop atmosphere – look at the ceiling and enjoy the very original chandelier designed by artist Imruh Asha and made with children’s toys!

To pair your sando, get the chicken karrage and homemade shoyu mayonnaise, the cheesy balls and homemade yuzu-kosho mayonnaise, or the regressive smiley-shaped fries. And for a beautiful finish, get the rice pudding and black sesame crumble, kuromizu sauce and kinako: how original!

Please note Ototo plans to have several guest chefs to create signature sando for a weekend, starting with Chef Julien Sebbag from May 31 to June 5.

A temple of sando open until the end of summer!
