    Japanese tapas are a pure delight to behold at izakayas in Singapore

    Savour the spirit of Japanese tapas in one of the many izakayas across Singapore. Historically izakayas were popular with businessmen in Japan in search of a booze-filled haven that served snacks, after a long working day. Nowadays, they are spread across the globe and Singapore’s izakayas are certainly a firm favourite with both expats and locals. The menu at izakayas generally consists of a tempting range of small snacks made from pork, beef, chicken, seafood and more. Choose from bite-sized fried chicken by the name of karaage, grilled vegetables or meat on skewers called kushiyaki, noodles, tofu dishes, salads and more at izakayas in Singapore. No meal at an izakaya is complete without a portion of tebasaki(spicy chicken wings), edamame beans with salt, garlic and chilli or fresh fish, lightly fried with lemon juice.
