Old Yakaze Izakaya｜Menu
There is a wide variety of menus in the old eight styles. When you come to an izakaya, you want to eat a bit of everything~ classic skewers, grilled dishes, Japanese style sashimi, sashimi, and even special desserts, all of which are amazing. Meats include beef, chicken, pork, and seafood, and the selection of wines is even more abundant. In addition to the signature draft beer, there are also sake and fruit wine.

Old Yakaze Izakaya｜Environment
The white lanterns in the dark night, the Japanese-style wooden house building, and the Japanese map full of various sake brands hung on the door. We seemed to walk into the streets of Japan. There are two seats for four people outdoors, sitting outside on a cool day, and having a drink with friends for two cups of homework must be very fun~
The indoor environment is also quite charming. It is especially relaxing under the warm lighting. There are a large number of Japanese paintings and shaped flags in the house, and the overall design is full. The curtains are cleverly used between the dining tables. If you want a little more privacy, you can lower the curtains to make dining and chatting more comfortable.
Jeffy and Allie particularly like the row of seats by the window. The glass panes seem to enlarge the space. There is no oppressive feeling for the two of them to eat inside, but there is a kind of comfort of hiding in their own small world.
