I tried Ootoya's limited-time menu "Alaska pollack and clams with rich spicy jjigae hotpot set meal". It is a set with spiciness and rich umami that makes your cold body hot when you go out on a cold day.
The price is 890 yen (tax included) and the calories are 556 kcal. The spicy taste of chili peppers, seafood such as clams and white fish, and miso are added to the chige soup, and handmade tofu, vegetables, and soft-boiled eggs are added as ingredients.
The hot pot that is brought to the table while boiling is full of ingredients and plenty of soup. The chili peppers are very spicy and hot, so you can sweat just by scooping them up with a lotus. The soup is exquisite even if you scoop it up and put it on rice.
Is Alaska pollack lightly fried among the ingredients? It has a savory flavor, and although it is soft, it does not crumble. The spicy soup goes well with the light taste of white fish.
The clams are large and the umami oozes into the pot, but when you chew, you can feel the thicker umami. The soup that collects in the shell is also a special taste.
The handmade tofu has plenty of volume. A chewy texture. Since it is contained in large chunks, it is an ingredient that you want to scoop out with a ranger and dip it in soup to make it chewy.
The soft-boiled egg seems to be soft when it's fluffy, but it can't be torn by just poking it lightly, so you can just scoop it with a ranger and enjoy the overflowing yolk. It's good to do it.
Even if you're hungry, you'll be completely satisfied by the time you're all flat. It is a set meal suitable for a proper dinner as well as lunch.
