If you’ve been looking to chow down on tasty Asian cuisine or want a big nostalgic trip down memory lane, congrats, you landed right where you should.

These TWO gems will transport you to the delicious realms of East Asia…

Head to Izakaya for a taste of Japanese goodness

Maki rolls, tempuras and excellent live-cooking options can be found at the OG of all OGs, IZAKAYA.
