Izakaya...The Japanese Neighborhood Bistro?...And a Cookbook
No, I am not adding Tokyo Saturdays to Tokyo Thursdays.
I did mention Izakaya this week but did not go into much details about.
It just happens that I just read Liquor store where you linger by Mark Robinson in today's FT that covers the same topic.
He suggests that comparing an Izakaya to a pub would not do it justice. Maybe more like a neighborhood place where local residents and those working nearby stop by for drinks and food.
