‘Your local Izakaya bar’, IZA is now officially open and nestles among a cosy row of Siglap shophouses and offers a casual, unpretentious yet edgy Japanese-styled bar and restaurant serving affordable kushiyaki fare and drinks.
Open daily from 6 pm till 1 am, IZA provides a relaxed and laid-back setting and its perfect for families and communal dining. In collaboration with popular The Skewer Bar (TSB), which first opened an outlet in Geylang, IZA boasts an extended menu where foodies can look forward to a good mix of traditional kushiyaki skewers grilled to perfection, alongside creations that marry Japanese-inspired classics with local flavours.
Look out for include the Four-Ton Chawanmushi which integrates a blend of century egg, salted egg, quail egg and the traditional chicken egg into an indulgent, steamed four-egg delight; fresh Whole Seabass with Home-made Chilli oven-baked to perfection; as well as Otah Tamago which combines Japanese-rolled omelette with fragrant Otah.
Other signature must-try dishes include the Hae Bee Hiam Pasta and Special Yaki Onigiri – both home-made with local condiment, hae bee hiam, and promises to satisfy local palettes.
TSB fan favourites are also available with the return of an array of well-marinated, grilled yakitori (chicken), yakiton (pork) meat skewers; fresh seafood ranging from grilled prawn, shishamo, unagi and scallops; to vegetables like shiitake mushrooms, okra (a.k.a. lady’s finger), leek and broccoli.
Other TSB-classics such as the TSB Salad, Oysters (served fresh or grilled), Stuffed Taupok Special, and Grilled Eggplant in Miso or home-made Chilli, also return to satisfy taste buds.
Those with a more liquid disposition can look forward to IZA’s selection of Japanese craft beers; Dassai, Tengumai and Fudoh sakes; Japanese whiskies, and gin.
