pizzakaya country road

An izakaya is a Japanese style dining bar that serves many small dishes to be shared with everyone at the table. At an izakaya you eat and drink, eat and drink, and then drink some more. This izakaya however, doesn’t serve the usual Japanese izakaya food. Instead, they have come up with unique pizzas in Japanese flavours like sansai (wild mountain vegetables) and pizza crusts covered in toasted sesame seeds served with wasabi tartar sauce. They even have a fried banana pizza for dessert. There is more than pizza at pizzakaya though, they have salads, green curry, risotto, yummy hors d’oeuvres like stuffed shiitake mushrooms, and snacks like shrimp crackers, and a variety of cheeses.

The shop is warm and cozy, owners are very friendly, and everything is served on beautiful original pottery. It’s popular with locals and tourist alike so get there early or drop in late.

Pizzakaya Country Road is about a 10 minute walk from Lodge tabi-tabi. You can also find it on our recommendation map here.
