8 All-New Japanese Mouthgasms You Should Eat On Montreal's Saint-Catherine Street

Only a couple of days ago, a new Japanese restaurant opened in the Faubourg downtown. Called Kinka Izakaya, the new eatery is the first Montreal branch of Kinka Family Inc, who are famed in Toronto for their series of Japanese restaurants, such as Guu Izakaya.

Since Kinka Izakaya's opening, and long before, the Kinka Family has been teasing our bellies with pictures of their menu, which simply looks amazing. We've yet to go try these dishes, but if a picture says a thousand words, the following pics of Kinka Izakaya's dishes just say delicious.

Check out the 8 dishes we're most excited to eat up at Kinka Izakaya, with all pictures courtesy of the resto's Facebook page, Twitter handle, and Instagram feed.
