I’ve visited a few Izakaya’s in Montreal and I have to admit I’m a fan. If you’re not familiar with the term Izakaya it’s simply the name given to Japanese pubs. They always have a great ambiance and fun atmosphere that turns your diner experience in a party. One thing that separated Kinka from the other ones I’ve visited in the past was the taste of their food, it was fantastic. Since an Izakaya is a pub at the base the menu consist of small portion dish very similar to the Spanish tapas. This makes it a great gathering place if you are a group as I often find it very hard to satisfy everyone and this format does not need everybody to get their dish at the same time for diner. We were actually a group of 12 when we visited Kinka and opted for the tasting menu combine with a few other dish from the regular menu.
Here’s a few of the dish we had during the evening that was also filled with liters of Sapporo’s .
