I am so excited that Edmonton finally has an izakaya! What is an izakaya? The definition according to Wikipedia is a Japanese drinking establishment that serves food along with drinks. I love places where I can meet friends after work for snacks and drinks and I’ve been to izakayas in Vancouver but I’ve always wished there was one in Edmonton – with the opening of Izakaya Tomo, my wish has been granted.
I met up with a few friends for dinner at Izakaya Tomo on a Friday night and I was glad JP was early so that he was able to grab a table – we got there around 6:15 and there were seats available but once 6:30 rolled around, the place was packed and there was a line of people waiting, so if you’re popping in for a visit, definitely consider making a reservation or going in a bit earlier.
