This Is Montreal's Most Authentic Izakaya

There are a lot of good restaurants in Montreal, featuring a myriad of flavours, cuisines and influences from all over the world. One culture that has quickly picked up steam in the last couple of years is what's known as an Izakaya, otherwise known as a Japanese pub.

Izakayas are all about eating amazing Asian-inspired tapas, drinking delicious Sake, and having a wicked awesome time doing it. We recently went to Kinka Izakaya located on St-Catherine Street right near Concordia University, and boy did they deliver!

From the warm and friendly welcome, to the mouth-watering dishes, to the excitement of sharing Sake Bombs with friends, Kinka has brought an authentic taste of Japanese culture right to our doorstep, and we can't wait to go back.

So feast your eyes on the video above for a peek at our experience, and then go and check it out for yourself. You won't be disappointed, trust.
