Ootoya is a Japanese restaurant chain with many locations in Japan and three in NYC. Both the space and the menu are huge, and a meal here can be affordable if you order right. It isn’t going to be the best Japanese food you’ll ever have, but they do a good pork katsu curry and the pressed salmon sushi is fun to eat with its three different preparations. That’s only a fraction of the menu, however. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Come here the next time you’re near Times Square and you want to eat some decent Japanese food without spending a stupid amount of money.
