Home Dine Out Japan Dinner at いろはかるた Izakaya 居酒屋| Kyoto Japan

 

Japanese Rice Ball Onigiri おにぎり

Onigiri お握り or 御握り, is a Japanese rice ball made with white rice and shaped into traingular or oval shapes, it can be wrapped in seaweed (nori 海苔). An onigiri is normally filled with pickled ume (umeboshi 梅干), salted salmon, katsuobushi, kombu, tarako, or any other salty or sour ingredient as a natural preservative. You can easily get it from convenient stores in Japan. I made an onigiri in Japan, with a very simple ingredients and procedures to follow. Those ingredients can easily get in Malaysia too.

 

Pepper Lunch | Japan

It is now a Hanami season in Japan (during March and April) and for many Japanese, this is the best time of year. The cherry blossom (sakura) trees all over Japan come in to bloom for about seven to ten days. This is also a great time for people to hold outdoor parties to view the sakura. The name “Hanami” says it all, hana means “flower” and mi is “to look”.

 

Ramen (ラーメン) | 亜麺坊 上野店 (アメンボウウエノテン) | Japan

Ramen (ラーメン or 拉麺) is a noodle soup that is very popular in Japan and it is originated in China. Ramen noodles are about as thin as spaghetti, served in variety of soup base. It is often served with sliced pork, dried seaweed, green onion and some other toppings.

 

Pokka Aromax Coffee | Japan

Recently, there are new types of coffee from Pokka Company in Japan. It is an aromax series coffee, four types of new aromax coffee namely "Black", "Ice Latte", "Espresso" and "Premium Gold". I have tried all of them and collected the cans of these 4 types coffee.Drinking cute mini can coffee in Japan is enjoyable but this is the first time I collected the cans. The reason is they are special in the sense that this is the first time I saw mini can with cover. Hence I collected 4 of them and wanted to bring them back to Malaysia as one of my collection.I bought all of them from company's vending machine, 90 yen each (about RM3.20). Normal price from outside vending machine is 120 yen each (about RM4.20).

IrohakarutaKyotoIzakaya居酒屋is a place where Japanese gather together for eating, drinking, smoking and talking. To be more precise, it is a place for them to drink, drink, drink and drink non-stop.

Since it is a place for drinking, many Izakaya provide drinking buffer (飲み放題 "nomihoudai") package. If you are to order a set package, many of them come with appetizer, main dishes, salad, dessert and some side dishes. The drinks are buffet type and you can choose from soft drink, wine, cocktail, sake and others. Most of them are alcohol.

I have visited to many of the Izakaya during the stay in Japan. Most of the times were attended farewell or welcoming party with Japanese colleague. I have no chance to take good photo during dining with them. When we travel to Kyoto, we had our dinner at one of the Izakaya, Irohakaruta Izakaya at Kyoto Japan. This is the time to capture as many photos as we can. Yuh Huu!

If you have enough time to spend in Japan, I would strongly recommend you to have a dinner at Izakaya to experience the Japanese life in Japan. You will notice that over here, the laughing and chating voice will temperary cover their pressure and busy life style in Japan. Of course, you have to get ready to change all your clothes and take a bath after arrive at home as your body will be very smelly with smoking and drinking smell. Tongue out

For more information about the shop, please click here and the menu can be found here . You can visit any of the Izakaya in Japan, most of them serve delicious and fresh food with different variety in food.
