Izakaya – 居酒屋

If you visit Japan you will probably find yourself eating dinner and having beer at an Izakaya. An Izakaya is actually like a casual after-work drinking place where people comes to drink, relax and hang out after a busy work day. Most Izakayas are divided by tatami walls or curtains into smaller booths or rooms. You and your dinner company will have your own booth or room so it’s not really a place to do people watching. The dishes are served like tapas, you order a lot of small dishes and everyone share.
You can usually find the same or similar dishes at all Izakayas. I usually order a salad, edamame, tofu, cabbage, potatoes and other yummy vegan dishes. When I eat out I always have a hard time deciding what to have from all yummy looking dishes so an Izakaya or tapas style are perfect for me. Do you like sharing a lot of small dishes with your dinner company or do you want your dish for yourself?

When we got to this Izakaya we were so hungry so I didn’t catch everything on photo before it was gone. The tofu was so silky and smooth and the edamame is always so good!

I hope you’re having a great Sunday!

スウェーデンには居酒屋がありません。仕事のあとの過ごし方も日本とは異なります。バーやレストランで同僚とビールを軽く何杯か飲んだら別れて家に帰るなり、友人と会うなりするのが一般的です。仕事のあとに飲み会をする習慣はあまりなく、あっても参加するのは独身者がほとんどです。タパスのような小皿料理もスペイン料理店以外ではあまり見られませんが、いろいろな料理を注文してみんなでつまむ日本のスタイルはカジュアルで打ち解けた感じがしていいですね。同僚と飲みに出かけて職場とは違った人となりを知り、楽しい夜を一緒に過ごすところもいいなと思います。私は日本の居酒屋文化が大好きです!

きょうもいい一日を!
