Japan’s capital comes alive in a new way when the sun goes down, the glow of neon lights beckoning people for after-work drinks and decorating the urban landscape with color. But even if drinks aren’t what you fancy, you can easily find yourself caught up in exploring until the early hours.
From 4-5pm, hop from one izakaya (居酒屋) to another, or stay for a couple of hours and order nomihoudai (all you can drink) while nibbling on typical Japanese snacks such as edamame and karaage.

I’ve only been to @blackbirdizakaya a few times, but it’s one of those places I wish I had in my neighborhood because I’d be there all the time. You pull up a seat at the bar and chef @billywkin is there slicing sashimi, making hand rolls, offering up cuts like the hamachi collar for $15! Three of us raised our hand so it was snapped up pretty fast! The couple who got it was so sweet, they insisted on sharing it with me (by that time I was full anyway so I declined), but it’s that communal and convivial spirit that I love as much as everything else. If you haven’t yet been to this tiny little Izakaya where they play old school 90’s hip hop (“Hip Hop Hooray! Oh!”) Do yourself a favor and try it. I always over-order because it’s such an event for me to get there (with traffic I’m about an hour away) but if you’re in the neighborhood you could just as easily pop in for plate of katsu curry or a bowl of ramen on your way home. Oh, and they recently started serving happy hour, too. #houstonrestaurants#houstonfood#bestfoodhouston#houstonfoodie#houstoneats#eeeeeats#foodporn#izakaya#gastropub#japanesefood#foodwriter#getinmybelly
