Savour the spirit of Japanese tapas in one of the many izakaya in the Esplanade. Long popular in Japan for salarymen craving an after-work sanctuary serving drinks and snacks, izakayas are now a firm favourite in Singapore with both expats and locals. On offer are a tempting range of snacks made from seafood, duck and beef, along with filling and pocket-friendly buffets and barbecues. The Esplanade’s izakaya are great places to meet up with friends or to unwind after a visit to Theatres on the Bay but be sure to avoid the queues by reserving your table with Quandoo.
Together with its scenic waterfront location, stunning entertainment venues and glorious park, the Esplanade is also well endowed with some inviting eateries including some fine izakaya. One of the most celebrated is Tomo Izakaya which serves up Japanese fare with a modern twist. Choose from shell crab, deep fried baby river prawns, and marinated octopus, and grilled fish, pork and beef for a memorable small plate dining experience. These dishes taste sublime when washed down with your choice of sake, shochu, beer, wine, or spirits. To find the perfect izakaya in the Esplanade, let Quandoo do the hard work for you!
