Robert Haynie. I have seen many travel programs that include Izakaya. They DO serve at times some Which I would happily try. I'm something of an oddball that way. I don't know much of Izakaya, but I went in a very small Yakitori restaurant where they served sake with some edamame, that was nice. OH wow, I'd love to get ahold of that book.

I still haven't been able to unearth my cook books since the move, I'm starting to worry they fell off the truck or didn't make it onto the truck :. My favorite alcohol drink tends to switch between vanilla vodka and coke to black russians, and for munchies Right now YOU got me hooked on soba noodles for summer, but with fall coming I'll probably be hunting down pretzels and hummus again. I also like various forms of cheese and fruit with crackers. This is the first time I heard of the actual Japanese word for those pubs I see on Japanese drama series.

If I ever go to Japan, I can guarantee that I'd spend more time eating then sightseeing! I haven't been to any Izakaya-style places, but this really makes me want to try it out! As for my favorite tibble, I actually had come across a recipe similar to your plum wine, except it was called Lemon Cello? I'm not sure about the spelling It called for lemons, vodka, and sugar and only needs to sit about a week!

I love it mixed with club soda and eaten with vanilla sponge cake. I have a jar of your plum wine recipe sitting in my closet I used strawberries instead of plums and I must wait a few more months until I can taste it! I'm a big beer drinker. I like to drink beer with Mostly Aussie-style pub food, though. Like steak, or potato wedges with sour cream and sweet chili sauce. I love Izakaya. When I am in Japan, I love to go to the ones in the local area and enjoy the food and drinks. Best tipple and snack has to be still warm, homemade, crumbly, sweeet shortbread with very peaty single malt whisky like Talisker or even better Lagavulin.

I'm a Scottish chef planning a 4 week trip through Japan next year with my partner who is also a chef, so any Japanese food porn books are very much our number one splurge right now. Looks like a really interesting read, my boyfried was lucky enough to visit Japan recently I was in my final year of university and couldn't really afford to go and he came back with a wealth of photos that made me increadably jealous. When it comes to drinking i am quite anti-social or at least compared to most people in england were it is the norm to go out to clubs and get completely inebriated then end up being taken back home by the police.

I'd much rather have half a bottle of medium white to myself with some nice comfort food whilst watching a film of some sort, generally something with lots of explosions! If I'm going out here, and have drinking partners and no budget limit, I order cava or if that's not available some white wine. For nibbles a mixed platter of good cheese cubes, sun-dried tomatos, anchovis, olives, etc to share with my friends. If I have the chance to go out in Japan again, I'd order an apple-sour at least that's what my Japanese guide calls it, I believe it's Shoshu with applejuice?

Maybe the book'll help me figure out the proper names. I've been following your blog recently and I just wanted to say thank you so much for the descriptive and useful recipes and tips you have here. It's nice to find Japanese recipes that aren't just sushi or sukiyaki. I'd like to enter the competition too! Favorite drink? Or a sturdy red wine. In reference to places I've lived or live in , the choices for food accompaniment would be: musubi with an umeboshi in the middle, or char siu bao Hawaii; we call them "manapua" and as kids got them from street vendors carrying their goods in tin cans balanced on a bamboo shoulder pole ; boiled crawfish and raw oysters Louisiana ; fried walleye and venison jerky Minnesota ; a nice wedge of Saint Nectaire or Pont L'Eveque and a crusty baguette France.

The motto of the now-vanished Schwegmann's grocery stores was: "In New Orleans we don't eat to live, we live to eat. Thanks Maki, Looks like a must-have book. It got me started studying the history of Izakaya and Tapas. Tapas seems clouded in legend: topper for wine to keep the flies out, Alfonso the 10th, the Wise, had to take small bites of food with some wine between meals because of illness, stinky cheese to hide the smell of bad wine Looks like the Izakaya book may have a section on the history of that tradition, perhaps less ambiguous.

One story I saw mentioned that Izakaya started a place to buy sake and evolved to a place to drink sake and so on to its current form. It is easy and delicous! I like trying different classic cocktails, and with a good steak dinner I will have either a Manhattan or Old-Fashioned.

And good coffee is a must with dessert!

Breaking News

Simple Japanese pickles are the perfect accompaniment to sweet potato shouchu - preferably the most pungent on the menu. Not one for the faint hearted, but a personal favorite of mine. I would sure love to win the book. I previewed a copy at the Bookstore today but it was a bit pricey for a splurge. I would have to wait til Christmas for a gift giving occasion and I am terrible when it comes to waiting. Jarrod Dixon. Your introduction paragraph was so well written, I purchased the book via your Amazon referrer link.

My Favourite Tipple is a slightly embarrassing retro classic: Shandy, but I like to make it with german wheat beer and make the lemonade myself with fresh lemon juice, sparkling water and demerara sugar. Try it and you'll never go back to that nasty stuff the pub sells! Oh, and it's best with wasabi peas. Hiya, I love Japanese food! My favorite drink is sake, to eat with grilled fugu wings with ebi eggs.

This recipe book looks amazing. I've already saved it on my list on Amazon.

If I don't win it, I think I'll purchase it myself! I also am not much of a drinker, but I do like a good hard cider, and British Strongbow is my favorite. Many find this weird that a young, smallish, woman would drink something that as more of a place in American political history ie: the "Log Cabin and Hard Cider" campaign of but I don't mind. It was a great flavor and I bet it would go great with a hearty beef stew on a cold day. I bet William Henry Harrison would drink to that! I was so excited when izakayas started opening up in Vancouver, where my parents live, but they're all expensive higher-end places.

I don't usually eat anything when I'm drinking one of those, though: my favourite drink to have with food is probably a sweet dessert wine with either dark chocolate or with sharp cheese. Natsukashiiii - and it's only been 5 months since I moved from Tokyo to a small town in Western Austria for love. I'm not much of a drinker at all and especially not when I'm eating because I'm too greedy and prefer to focus on the food, but I do like Sapporo beer. Wait, did I bookmark that "cheap flights to Tokyo website? Izakayas seem to be popping up everywhere.

I live in LA, and now there are some really great places to choose from. I especially love a couple in Little Tokyo because I'm delighted to see the resurgence there! BUT, my memories go back to Japan. The tiny little sort of dark and dingy place, wood paneling on the walls, maybe a smattering of photos, with only 6 or seven little seats. An introduction is usually needed.

And as Mark Robinson points out, the really good ones are impossible to get in to. They are like hidden little gems tucked away in some back alley. My favorite sake is Kubota, but as far as "eats", it's Omakase. Chef's choice. You can cry about the bill later, but you will never forget the privilege. Maki, you make me homesick. My fav drink is Gin and Tonic and I love to eat it with fried Camembert cheese not very diet friendly My combo is beer and "cheese toast". A piece of buttered toast and either a slice of American cheese or shredded cheddar. Hubs is liking beer or sake, when we can find it here in small town Texas, and some dried mackerel okabe yaki aji that we picked up on a recent trip to Austin.

Claire D. That book sounds great I will have to look it up! I love your site and thank you for keeping it up. I love nasu miso with Sapporo. There are quite a few tapas and izakaya-style pubs or restaurants in Vancouver if you know where to look, but the prices are just unbelievable. For the price of a decent dinner, it's about half the size, though some are well-made and offer a good variety.

I'm not much of an alcohol person, but I can survive on tea, so whatever I'm in the mood for and whatever I can find around the house, which is usually yoghurt and some fruit. That delicious-looking book and all this talk is making me hungry! We are snack fiends at our house - but we don't drink. We're pretty boring as far as our evening snacks go Jas Min. I had a peek inside the book through the amazon link and it looks very exciting! I've always loved Japanese cuisine more so if its a favourite of the locals and the izakaya food that they ocasionally show in Japanese TV dramas always make my mouth water.

I really hope I win this book! My favourite tipple used to be cider which was easily available during my student years in England. Unfortunately we were unable to bring any back with us as they were all specially made by family relatives during the harvest festivals in Sabah. I'm definately booking a bottle for next year's harvest festival!

I'm a VERY light-weight drinker: one glass of wine will get me sleepy! It pairs so well! And it is refreshingly satisfying on a hot summer day! Give it a try! Hmmm I guess I would say a nigori-style sake or plum wine with either gummy bears or nuts. I think japanese liquor is very well suited for pairing with snacks.

I've never been to an izakaya before, not that I know, but I would really like to. I feel so sad everytime I watch japanese food tv shows I once ate a marinated squid kind of thing- it was really red and spicy and salty- is it a pickle? I love my local izakayas but have been forced to avoid them of late because I'm unemployed so I would love to have this cookbook! My favorite tipple? At home, I usually drink a g'n't while making dinner but if I ordered it at a restaurant I'd ideally have a lovely bruschetta with nice summer tomatoes.

Mmmm, tomatoes Danii Goldstein. I'm always interested in the various ways that food and culture play out. Combined with my love of cooking, I'd really like to get my hands on this book. A glass of red wine and a self made tortilla de patatas. I got the recipe of a spanish friend of mine during college time sigh Well, I don't drink alcohol, so my favourite 'tipple' is actually tea - usually green, though I'm enjoying a nice pot of oolong at the moment - accompanied by a couple of rounds of marmite on toast. Mostly for breakfast, but could happily have it for every meal, every day.

I am a yon-sei but like to eat like an issei! I have recently been teaching myself how to make traditional japanese food of all kinds I don't drink too much, but do like to drink a little Asahi or Sapporo when I eat japanese food Izakaya style! Maki- Thank you so much for your site! It has allowed me to cook the sorts of foods I miss so much about Japan, where I grew up, but no longer live. This book looks wonderful I miss Izakaya food very much.

My favorite tipple has got to be either Baily's Irish cream or Lemon Chu-hi A very cold glass of german beer beer brewed by wheat which is called "Hefeweizen" and a german "Rostbratwurst" little grilled sausages with sweet mustard. It's simple but very delicious. I went to Izakaya with a friend. Pretty much didn't know what is Izakaya back then, I thought it was just an expensive Japanese restaurant.

I was terribly hungry and all they serve were of course, duh! My favorite alcohol beverages would be cold ASAHI beer in hot summer of Sydney with tako wasa raw octopus with wasabi or korean side dish raw squid mixed in gohjujang paste. Sounds yucky but it's really yummy. I personally don't like alcohol in any form, but I haven't had sake before. To be honest, I doubt I'll like it, but I reckon I should at least give it a shot. I am actually just starting to study abroad here in Japan, and the other night I had umeshu with soda, which I think is now my favorite drink! I had it with yakiniku, and it was just sooo delicious.

Well, this is embarrassing, but I like a glass of wine and potato chips dipped in cottage cheese! I loved the food in Japan when I lived there for a year, back in I've never been back but still find that Japanese was my go to comfort food for years after I left. The culture there around food is amazing. Thanks for the great site! Thanks for the giveaway. This book looks like a good one.

You've made me want to visit Japan even more. Pub food is the best. My favourite tipple is a good beer it depends on the local offering and anything potato. Or here in PR, we have "guineitos en escabeche" marinated green bananas. Recinda Sherman. I moved from Portland, Oregon to Miami, Florida a few years ago and have been lost without easy access to fresh, high quality foodstuffs and the restaurant scene here leaves much to be desired good mexican is nearly as hard to find as decent asian food of any variety! This year my daughter is in 3rd grade and I started bento lunches for both of us thanks to you!

It has only been 3 weeks but she loves it, and I am garnering a few skills. Your bacon-wrapped tofu is currently the most coveted by her school mates. Anyhoo--I like to drink grin. But in honor of the book, my favorite sake is from Oregon--and organic: Momokawa Organic Junmai Ginjo.

Tom Morse. So many nomimono, so little time. Shaken not stirred over ice, drained into a martini glass, garnished with something citrussy I don't drink sake either but I love pairing most Japanese foods with a crisp white wine, really enhances the flavors for me. My husband and I would love this book since we love eating at izakayas when we visit Japan! I love beer and eating poke together or if we're at an izakaya then grilled fish like hokke. I love izakaya food! Too bad it's kind of expensive in the US. I love Japanese beers, and my favorite is Orion from Okinawa. Anneta B.

What a intriguing book! Thank you for both producing a quality blog that I enjoy reading and for offering such a great book as a giveaway. It is smooth and drinkable either room temperature or chilled. I don't enjoy drinks that sear or leave a bitter aftertaste. The Lindeman's Framboise is also great. Favorite food to drink with my favorite tipple: sandwich or stews. Pork and chicken dishes are particularly tasty with this drink. It is simple a smooth, satisfying drink that enhances rather than dominates any food you serve with it.

Jen D. I've always preferred to eat tapas style with a lot of people and an izakaya is the perfect place to sample many tastes without spending a lot of money. Honda-ya in downtown Los Angeles has a good menu, but the execution is just so-so Currently my favorite would have to be GOOD must stress quality here margaritas with tacos made from home-made corn tortillas. Because it is nigh impossible to get good Mexican in London!

Though we're running out of Pimm's season, it's always a good standby, and pretty much goes with any nibble, but perhaps extra lovely with a goats cheese tartlet on wild greens.

Jennifer Glazer. I love the notion of a lighthearted Japanese cookbook, after ploughing my way through Japanese Cooking - A Simple Art! Can't wait to visit Tokyo and treat myself Better send me the book so I don't embarass myself! My favorite tipple is a good, ol' fashioned strawberry daquiri. Light on the alcohol though, because I'm a lightweight.

I do enjoy rum My favorite tipple was kuro nama along with Tori-sashimi wrapped in shiso leaves. I was very lucky to visit Japan numerous time in the early 's. I had a group of Japanese friends who basically went to Izakaya every night after work. I got to experience so pretty crazy food but none stranger than Tori-sashimi wrapped in shiso leaves. I look back now and realize just how great of an experience it was to experience Izakaya before it was even heard of in Canada. I used to explain it to my friends and say how I thought it was a great was to go out and have fun.

It also created a life time love of Japanese food especially Izakaya style both cooking at home and going out, We now have 2 Izakayas in our city and they are both good! Wow, that book and those recipes sound amazing! I don't drink though, so I guess I can't really answer the question. Ah, I remember my first izakaya experience.

It was my first time in Tokyo, the family was feeling peckish, and there it was, an izakaya filled to the brim.

Izakaya: The Japanese Pub Cookbook

The book would've come in quite handy because we were at quite a loss as to what to do. It worked out well that night, fortunately, and the house sake remains as one of the best I've tasted. My tipple of choice would be a nice, double-shot Gordon's Gin and tonic in a chilled glass and a large chunk of ice. Ah, mere thoughts are making me hungry already I love izakaya food!! Thank you so much for the book review. I also want to thank you for the recipe on buta no kakuni.

THAT recipe is exquisite! Ung Chi Huor. Ian Horner. My favorite bar snacks tend to vary, depending on whether I'm out or not. But at home, I generally make my own snack tray stocked with dolmas, oil-cured black olives, cheese, fruit, and veggies. A really unique favorite is served at a local Jamacian cafe: Plantain chips with honey-cucumber sauce and guacamole. With just a touch of papaya hot-sauce, these go perfectly with whatever I'm drinking One of the J-Girls living in San Francisco.

We call ourselves the J-Girls because we are a group of crazy Japanese American women who have been researching, digging up grandmas recipes and cooking together Japanese dishes I stumbled upon your site while researching one day and love it! Email me I love pub food and japanese food so Izakayas might be great, unfortunately here we haven't even got one. Having had tasty, relaxed meals in Kyoto izakaya with Japanese friends and family, DH and I were looking forward to trying one of the high-end places in Tokyo that we had discovered on the internet.

Our hotel was pleased to make our reservation; the izakaya happened to be in the office building next door. When we arrived, we were bowled over by the decor and the food on the tables. But we were stopped in our tracks when we realized that all the menus were in Japanese and no one in the restaurant spoke English! Sadly, we excused ourselves and went hunting for an eatery that displayed plastic food. Our pointing fingers work in most every country.

It's funny that my first comment on this blog should be about an izakaya book, since I first came across this site in my Google search for izakaya food! There are quite a few Japanese styled izakayas in Vancouver, it is very popular! I am not sure how authentic they are in comparison to Japan, but the atmosphere and pub-ness of it all is definitely there!

I only wish that a I was still in high school and b I spoke fluent Japanese, because it seems like a lot of fun to work in an izakaya. I am tripping through all my wonderful Izakaya memories right now! My favourite tipple would be an ice cold nama chu beer to wash down some gorgeous, melt in the mouth, grilled, garlicky aubergine and hopefully some tai sashimi. CAn't wait to go on vacation to Japan next Spring This book looks incredible! Debbie Lee. This book looks so cool I remember being in the diff Tokyo Izakayas and everything is soooo yummy and interesting.

But, what's my fav 'tipple' I don't know if I have one. But, it's def something savory I try to only eat sweets when I really 'crave' them I'd have to say, just a bowl of basic oshinko would be perfect! I've been eyeing this book since it came out last year. Interested in your thoughts if you've read those.

Awesome with a couple slices of smoked salmon jerky, or a chocolate bar with hazelnuts. That book looks really interesting. I love cookbooks which give background to the food because they provide reading material as well as recipies. I always worry about deadlines for this site, but since it's still thursday morning GMT, it should be safe. It seems to be a really interesting book. I'm from Spain, and when I first heard about Izakaya I thought, as you said, that it was very similar to our spanish bar, except that in spain normal bars don't take such care of the presentation.

I've been thinking what to choose to write this reply. I really find it difficult, as I love go "tapas" with my family and my friends, and I have also tried other foreing foods that were amazing. But I have finally decided about it, and I choose something really representative of where I live:. Literally it means "Garlic and cayenne". It's a tapa traditional from my city and surrounding Valencia. It's made with eel, of course garlic and cayenne, but also aldmonds, potatoes and some spices. I love to eat it with some spanish bread slices, as then you can get all the sausage taste into the bread, after eating the eels.

Most people don't like it as it's made with eel, but I really think it is delicius, better with the bread, even. Its general Middle Eastern appetizers including small meat patties, fried meat in a torpedo shaped shell, fried chicken pieces, potatos stuffed puff pastry dough, hummus, tehina, babaghanoush, taboule Julia Shanahan.

We have some pretty good ones here in the Pacific Northwest too. Hmm, my favorite tipple has to be any of the wonderful local craft brews. Pair that with nabe ryori on a cold winter night and I'm in heaven. So glad I found your site. Guinness with cassis syrup is also up there, great with a baguette and old cheddar. I normally just have it on its own without any snacks but i think salty nuts or chips will probably go well with it.

I love all your tips and especially ones on kyaraben love the break down of steps and pix! The size of these Izakaya dishes will be perfect to unwind the day with my husband after the kids go to sleep! Pamela Huxtable. I am living in Tokyo and love eating at izakaya places. So far my favorite is in Shimokitazawa, where we had the most amazing looking daikon dish.

I would love to try and cook izakaya food. Here's hoping I'm lucky. BTW - Congratulations on your book!
