That’s right-this type of restie is our new favorite type of eating/drinking kinda place (Cleveland take note). It all started with Mac Mac, TracieMidori and Uncle Wes – all said that Izakaya was the awesome.
We thought they were dealing with their glaucoma issues, but apparently, they’re right – Izakaya is the shiznit.
Using Wikipedia as the answer to the world’s problems, izakaya means literally “to stay” and “sake shop”. Stay + #drinkydrinky = HAI!
And the first place we had a chance to check out an Izakaya place….Chizakaya in Chicago (Chicago + Izakaya = Chizakaya). Located at 3056 N Lincoln Ave this place is perfect anytime because of the $4 – Sapporo pints and $4 Kirin Ichiban pints all day-every day.
Confession: I love nasty bits. Nasty bits are commonly referred to the innards and the parts that no one wants to eat, I love them all: gizzards, skin, hearts, tongue, cheek, etc…Yes I said it…I love the nasty bits. Don’t you love the nasty bits too?!?!
If I was in Chicago right now…I’d be eating at @Chizakaya multiple times a week. Easily I’d vote this as MUST-EAT in Chicago.
Besides, who doesn’t want to eat Chicken gizzards, baby octopus, duck hearts, beef tongue, and chicken skin…I’m so in. As you know, @NoReservations loves the Nasty Bits too.

Dessert? Are you kidding me?
Well, thanks to theEK (@jillsur) and Midori (@Tracie209), this restaurant and dessert has made our official “must have” dessert in Hawaii.
Where could we get this? Say hello to Shokudo Japanese (@Shokudo).
Shokudo means “dining room” in Japanese…so obviously this is where you go to eat, drink, etc…you get the idea. But located on Kapiolani adjacent to Ala Moana with a glut of tourists shuffling around - I seriously had my doubts of this place.
Upon entering, we plopped ourselves at the busy bar. With a very frosty glass of draft Kirin Ichiban, our visit included a birthday celebration, food and food and food, well-basically everything…the bar staff was very accomodating. Seriously, can’t begin to tell you how incredible the two gals that were working the bar…they were awesome. Strong drinks and nice bar tenders - Supah nice too!
Back to the dessert.
Honey Toast: “The specialty of the house-Thick Japanese white toast cutout and cubed, drizzled with honey and topped with vanilla ice cream” $7.45
Just cause you’re die-hard foodies – I’ll save you some time: Here’s your google search (fo reals) and Here’s your google image search (see I wasn’t lying). Now check our new favorite Honey Toast-
Not only does this sound so decadent, the dessert itself is huge. Consider sharing…maybe.
Every bite should include some bread, honey, and ice cream.
One bite, guaranteed you’re in love.
