5 Best Things To Eat at Ootoya
This week Counter Culture yams its way into Ootoya, a Japanese chain restaurant that's been compared to Denny's. (Don't worry, it's way better than that.) Here are some of the things my friends and I enjoyed at this reasonably priced set-meal destination, where less than $20 gets you a voluminous meal with all the trimmings.
5. Tsunami Tororo Soba (above) -- This serving of soba (for $8!) features a smothering cloud of whipped white Japanese yam, for lube, with a soy dipping sauce on the side.
2. Tsukune Yakitori -- That glistening baton you see on the right is composed of ground chicken, glorious in its plainness and downright delicious. The egg yolk is to dip it in, after you whip the yolk with your chopsticks.
