Cheap eats - Tasty grilled Pacific Ocean Perch from Ootoya @ Ginza, Tokyo

Ootoya is a famous chain restaurant in Japan focusing on Teishoku set meal. Their objective is to provide "hearty home made dishes" like what Japanese have at their home daily. It different compared to the normal well known Japanese food such as sushi, kaiseki, shabu-shabu and ramen. Ootoya set meal usually includes a main dish, rice, miso soup and a small side dish. The style is like daily dinner meal at home. The menu offered are extensive from grilled fish, fried fish, steaks, Japanese cutlet, tuna, vegetables soup, bowl rice and sour pork. The menu varies and can be Western, Japanese or fusion. What makes Ootoya popular is their reasonable price range of around 1000 Yen. The staff here are so friendly and polite.

I ordered the chargrilled Pacific Ocean Perch pickled in salted rice malt and mirin. This is a set meal which comes together with rice. But since I am not that hungry, I just ordered the set without rice.

Taste:8/10(Delicious. Ootoya is a cheap, simple and quick place where you can have good lunch and dinner. Since most dinner place have higher price tag, Ootoya can gets very crowded at night).
Price:8/10(Cheap. For price if 812 Yen, I get a decent dinner set shown below. Cheese cake ice cream at 315 Yen).
