DAN IZAKAYA RESTAURANT 居酒屋 – SAN JOSE, CA (BAY AREA)

Dan Izakaya is probably one of the better and well known Japanese Izakaya 居酒屋 restaurant in the Bay Area. We made a reservation for 7pm, but still had to wait 10 minutes. The place is small and very packed. We do like the Izakaya feel. Service was very good.

We started off with Grilled Beef Tongue – not too chewy, perfectly grilled with salt and pepper.

Butter Grilled Mochi with Spicy Cod Roe – my favorite of the night, love the chewy-ness from the mochi, the salty-ness from the fish roe makes the plain mochi very flavorful.

Grill Squid Salad – this was not bad, but doesn’t stand out from the rest of the dishes.

Another favorite dish of the night Salmon Roe & Uni Stone Pot Rice – we got the medium size. There was plentiful of salmon roe, and uni was buttery.
