Izakaya

Kanji 居酒屋, meaning "stay," "alcohol," and "room" or "shop". Casual places for small dishes of Japanese food and drinks.

They looked tiny but these mini burgers were bursting rich in flavour with every bite. The beef and pork patty was juicy; and the crunchy cabbage slaw added a refreshing element to it. On a low carb diet? Fret not as these burgers only have a charcoal bun as the base and topped at the top with a quail egg. Absolutely umami! 😍

This Izakaya Tapas and Sake Bar not only offers impressive eats and all sorts of sakes, its interior concept is fascinating. Once a finance house, Boruto has retained the mighty vault on its 2nd floor and turned it into a beautiful sake cellar. One of its signature dish, the Sake Chicken, was a standing ovation. Roasted with Kikusui Sake, the layer of skin was thin and crisp; and the meat itself was moist, tender and mildly seasoned. A super tasty fowl worth sharing! 😋

Ehhh...isn't it supposed to be Yakitori? The don came with a bowl of rice and topped with some pieces of grilled chicken. Lettuce and mayo cream were served alongside the nicely marinated chunks of meat. Average satisfaction overall.

The yakiniku don was made using regular beef that were thinly sliced and grilled, and served on a bowl of rice. Onions served alongside the beef were sweet and topped off with a ramen egg. Overall the don was quite bland and lacking in flavour (perhaps due to the lack of sauce), but the beef was tender. Worth a taste for its price value!

Saw this new restaurant-bar by chance and decided to give it a try. What was supposedly a bottle of Yuzu Soda that we added on to complete our lunch set, turned out to be liqueur. 😄 Apparently this is Tamano Hikari Yuzushu, the brewery's first-ever yuzu liqueur to be produced, with 10% alcohol content. It was really light with a bittersweet aftertaste that excite my tastebuds (and heart). Yumz!
