Fall is in full swing, and as we set the clocks back this weekend, we can look forward to the second half of the season, as well as the end of the year. At moto-i in Minneapolis, we know that your fall has likely been busy with work, school, household chores, and other obligations, and you might be looking forward to taking a break and enjoying some downtime. Even if it’s just for a day or for a few hours, sitting down and relaxing can help you reset and refocus before you get back to working or to cleaning the house.

If you’re feeling hungry while taking a break this fall, we can provide you with amazing Japanese cuisine, including traditional ramen, rangoons, and rice bowls. You can order online or stop by our restaurant to dine in or carry out!

Fall Chores

Fall is when you spend time getting your yard and house ready for winter. You’re often raking leaves on the weekend, cleaning out the gutters, and making sure everything is put away for the colder months of the year. These chores can take up most of your day, which means you don’t have a lot of time to plan or make meals between organizing the garage or putting away garden tools in the shed.

If you’re looking for a quick meal that requires no prep on your part, call us or order online and we’ll make sure you have delicious food ready to go when you’re ready to take a break. You can enjoy your favorite Japanese dishes and then get back to your fall chores.

Time Off From School

School looks a bit different for students this fall, with many taking online classes or only spending part of the time on campus. If you have fall break coming up, or your school is following a different schedule where in-person classes end by Thanksgiving, then you might be planning to head home or to enjoy some downtime in your dorm or apartment. If so, why not order in once or twice and save the cooking for a day when you have more time or energy?

We’re open until 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, so if you’re hungry late on a weeknight, you can stop by or order online. If you’re of drinking age, you can also order sake to go from our on-site brewery!

Holiday Planning

With the arrival of November, your mind might quickly turn to planning for the upcoming holidays. This year’s holiday season will likely be different than in years past, but you still want to make sure that the house looks festive, you’re able to get all of your shopping done, and you have time to make all of your favorite treats. These tasks can take a lot of time, and might not leave you with much room to make dinner every day.

As you’re planning for the holidays this year, we can help take the stress out of planning meals by giving you another option for dinner. After a day of shopping or decorating, you can order your favorite Japanese food and enjoy it on the couch while you watch your favorite holiday movie.

Order Your Favorites

If you’ve ordered from our restaurant before and have your favorites, we’ll gladly make them for you again this fall. If you’ve never had the traditional Japanese cuisine at moto-i, we can recommend menu items to you, and we’ll always answer any questions you have about our food. If you want to dine in, you can make a reservation through OpenTable, and if you want to order to-go meals, please use our ToastTab link.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
