Heading to Vegas and need a restaurant recommendation? Go to Ichiza! 

I was in Las Vegas for a few days and met up with some friends from San Francisco the other night. One of them is my good friend Rich who loves to eat as much as I do! He’s the best kind of friend to be in Vegas with! He suggested that we go off the Strip and eat at a Japanese izakaya called Ichiza.

An izakaya is a Japanese style pub that serves small share plates. I’ve written about them before in my post about Guu in Vancouver. I was excited to eat here because it had many great online reviews. We jumped into a cab and headed towards Chinatown, where many of the Asian eateries are located. Ichiza is located in a strip mall on Spring Mountain Road.




  • Flights: Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.
  • Accommodations: I use Booking.com or Tripadvisor to find the best rates on hotels. Hotels.com offers a free night after booking 10 nights.
  • Travel Insurance: Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For my round the world trip and extended long-term travel, I use World Nomads. For other trips, I have used Roam Right and they cover activities like extreme sports.

We ordered a pitcher of beer and some sake to start along with a bunch of plates to share. See what we ate below:

Seafood Quesadilla. I liked it but it could handle a little less mayo

And the honey toast with ice cream. Yes, you read right!

Am I a fan? Yes. Unless you have a car in Las Vegas, you will need to take a taxi from the strip. In my honest opinion, it’s worth the trek. Sometimes you need to get off the strip for good food and eat where the locals go. For $25 each with tip, we had a pitcher of beer, some sake and enough to eat. I did forget to take a picture of a grilled mackerel with miso dish.
