Ootoya restaurant - Kasan Ni Teishoku

My recommendation for Teishoku is "Kasan Ni" at Ootoya Restaurant. This one is an Ootoya special and one of their signature items. I actually ate this yummy teishoku when I went there with my family for the first time. Then, I ended up sticking to this dish for a while after that whenever I went there.

Here is a great YouTube that reminds me of a kind of excitement when I am served.

It is deep fried chicken in special sauce. I like their mildly sweet taste of the sauce and how the sauce mixes with the bread crumbs on the chicken.

It's only cost 760 yen and it's a healthy dish that you can eat a lot of vegetables too! Ootoya's atmosphere is beautiful and the staff is very attentive. Please give it a try when you have a chance.
