大戸屋ごはん処 Ootoya Gohan-Dokoro @ Kyoto, Japan

For our very first dinner at Kyoto on day 4, we choose to have it at Ootoya Gohan-Dokoro 大戸屋ごはん処 or just Ootoya for short. It’s a famous chain dining restaurant focusing on teishoku (Japanese set meal). It has branches all over Japan and oversea. You might have seen Ootoya in your country as well.

In Kyoto, there are four Ootoya shops. We went to the one at Sanjo dori. Ordering was easy as they have English menu. For limited/seasonal dishes, they only have it in their Japanese menu. So make sure you check them out too. The atmosphere was really cozy (imagine family style restaurant) and food were served in timely manner.

Charcoal Grilled Atka Mackerel @ Ootoya, Kyoto
Let me show you what I ordered first. Charcoal grilled atka mackerel @ 780 yen. I ordered the dish minus rice, miso soup and pickles. In other words, à la carte. This dish wasn’t my first choice. I wanted charcoal grilled mackerel but it was sold out. The atka mackerel was really salty and has an odor that I’m not accustom to. Due to that I had to beg some rice from my mates to down it with.
