It's Izakaya Week

3190148.47.jpg


Today, Our Man Sietsema and I present Izakaya Week for your reading, eating and drinking pleasure. Izakayas are Japanese pubs that serve lots of alcohol, and a large selection of snacks--noodles, grilled meat and seafood, fried chicken, rice porridge, and so on.

Our Man Sietsema is at Rockmeisha, where the ramen is terrific, and anything involving a pig's foot is a good bet; skip the bizarre slab of cream cheese.

Meanwhile, I'm at Qoo Robata Bar in Williamsburg, where the encyclopedic menu offers good drinking food like raw octopus in wasabi, quail egg and bacon skewers and whole grilled smelts.
