Tonight I went to Ootoya in NY finally!!
I thought it was crowded but it wasn't. Maybe because I went there at 8pm in weekdays though.
In the menu there were both teishoku (sets of entree, rice, miso soup and chawan-mushi which is savory egg curd) and a la carte. And teishoku costs $15-20 and the portion was American size!! So I'm sure that is enough for you even for men.
The taste was good too. I miss those food in Japan so it's good to have this kind of place in NY!!
And it was fun to see the people there. I thought there might be many Japanese but most of tables were mix of Japanese and non-Japanese. Which was nice to see how we can introduce Japanese food to them:)
This time I went there with my friend who is not Japanese and he liked Katsu-don but he didn't like chawan-mushi which I really like!! So it was interesting to see how grew up with food effect our tastes.
I want to go there with more friends who like to try new food!! And most of my friends are like that:)
