One of my favorite drinks that I can no longer get now izakays I’m out of Japan is a non-potato shochu, like Tantakatan made from green shiso or Beni-Otome sesame. When we arrived, we were bowled over by the decor and the food on the tables.

When you attempt to order a range of dishes in most restaurants, the portions end up being too much and your bill ends up astronomical. And congratulations on your upcoming book.

Cookbook: Izakaya—The Japanese Pub Cookbook

I think the best thing is to hang out at my favourite pub with all of my friends, and enjoy a pint of stout with a big ‘ol plate of fries with malt vinegar.

That book looks wonderful.
