Ichiza Izakaya: For Japanese Small Plates In Las Vegas
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.
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
This was a pork belly dish. It was amazing
Wagyu beef carpaccio
I think this was the beef tongue skewer
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.
