Tsubohachi Hokkaido Izakaya

Hailed all the way from Hokkaido, Japan. Tsubohachi is a Japanese casual bar with more than 300 outlets in Japan; with over 40 years of history. This izakaya aims to bring an authentic Japanese dining experience to Malaysian. Hence, they are emphasizing on taste (Aji), environment (Wa) and hospitality (Omotenashi). Once you entered, you will see a few giant wooden tub seats facing the kitchen counter. There are a few private tatami rooms in the house and serve as great seating for large number of people and party!

Tsubohachi’s menu is pretty impressive. They offer an extensive menu on food and beverages – not just beer (ie. Asahi Sub-Zero draft beer) and cocktails, but also sake, shochu, sours, high ball and some non-alcoholic beverages.

Kamameshi is literally translated to “kettle rice”, a traditional Japanese rice dish that is cooked in an iron pot called kama. It is a special rice dish where it is served raw with all the ingredients placed inside the pot. And then it will be cooked on the table for about 20 minutes (consume once the fire is put off). Then stirred in the seaweed and spring onions before enjoying the rice.

I love our Tarabagani Kamameshi (Rm 36.9) – the king crab pot rice where all the sweetness and essence from this sea monster were infused into the fluffy white rice. What’s more, that the fragrant and crispy burnt rice at the corner or the bottom of the pot.
