IKKI-Izakaya

92 Wishlisted
~$20/pax
IKKI is the little known Japanese incarnation of “bottoms up”. The kanji or chinese letters are extremely apt, literally translating it to “one breath”. And at IKKI, lunch is like a battlefield, with the kitchen dishing out lunch sets after lunch sets, the staff seemingly holding their breath until the whole ordeal is over. Transitioning to the lull afternoon timing, IKKI brings their own blend of artisanal coffee with buttermilk waffles, Japanese style. The buttermilk waffles are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, with a Japanese twist. On top of the standard maple and butter variety, IKKI uses salty sweet mitarashi and red bean or yuzu jam. Night, at IKKI, is a different affair altogether. The whole place slows down and the menu changes from lunch sets to Yakitori or barbecued skewers and a plethora of Japanese tapas that allows the customers to eat and drink at their leisure. And to keep the festivities going, IKKI features local bands playing from Tuesday to Friday. The Yakitori and barbecued skewers are done over a grill with bincho tan that lends an oak-like smokiness to the meats and vegetables. While popularly consumed with cold beer, IKKI recommends its own pairing of infused sho chu highball or other wise known as chu-hi.

Huge serving of yakiniku beef and chargrilled steak on don at a very reasonable price of $12 and $15 respectively. A pity they didnt serve onsen eggs on those beef bowls. Wish they could go just a little more for perfection. Was surprised by their salmon sashimi that is both fatty and fresh along with skewers and chargrilled omelette. Good music and ambience for dinners.

Bara Chirashi ($14)

Decent quality for the price, and actually quite filling as it comes with a rather large portion of rice, as well as miso soup. Sure, it won't be as fresh as many other sushi bars, but for this price, you really can't expect more. Quality should be on par with the likes of Teppei, albeit with a smaller serving of fish. Would definitely come back here if I need a quick Chirashi fix that would not hurt the wallet at all! Service was really efficient too.

Decent portion of chicken chunks covered in runny semi-cooked eggy goodness over don. ($11) The rice had some kind of soy-teriyaki sauce so it's not too dry (hate having to eat plain rice). Yummy food, drinks and good company to celebrate mid-week. (Weekends are nearing 💪🏻😍)

Fish was not fresh today. Also. The lunch set has a better rice to fish ratio than the regular rice bowl...

Wanted a place to eat while everyone was crowding the nearby restaurants due to the heavy rain. Finally ventured to the other side of macs and found seats in a reasonably busy izakaya. Both the udon and chirashi were smaller sizes so they were great for the set! Chirashi was fresh and tasty. Udon could use more flavor though.. Great value set for lunch!

Enjoyed the combination of cream cheese, mentai mayo and Aburi salmon!!
