Featured Bestsellers of Island Izakaya
Here are some of the bestsellers that we tried during our visit.
Bacon-Wrapped Cheesee Yakitori
This Yakitori looked so special because it is separate and it is plated by itself. This tasted (of course) like Bacon with cheese. If you are thinking this might be super salty, it isn’t. It has the right balance of saltiness.
For the price of Php 90, this is actually affordable.
Tsukini, Momo, Torikawa, Butabara, Tebasake Yakitori
Here are the other bestseller Yakitori:
- Tsukini – Chicken Balls
- Momo – Tender chicken thigh
- Torikawa – Chicken Skin
- Butabara – Pork Belly
- Tebasake – Chicken Wings
I think all of them have the same sauce while grilling, but each has its unique taste. My favorite is Torikawa which is I know sinful to eat, but it really taste so good.
We ordered a lot of Yakitori that’s why they gave us a FREE shot of Soju. Cool promo!
One of their bestsellers, this is Oyaku Don. This dish is made out of Chicken, egg, and sliced scallion with sweet-savory broth topped on a bowl of rice, and garnished with Nori strips.
This dish is good for one but can be also shared by two people especially if you order other dishes too.
This is the favorite dish of my mom and baby brother, the Salmon Don. This is made out of Kombu cured Salmon with spring onions, edamame, and Salmon roe topped on a bowl of Nori rice. If Busy is with us too, I think he will love this too!
There is a generous serving of salmon, so we got to taste the Salmon a lot.
I do not eat tongues or any internal parts of animals, but this one tasted so good! I ate a lot!
This is an appetizer but this can be a viand too, it tasted good and it’s like I am not eating Tongue.
Drinks of Island Izakaya
They also serve Kombucha which is fermented tea. This has a lot of health benefits, and it comes in different flavors.
Finally, this is the Lychee Martini which is one of the alcoholic drinks of Island Izakaya. They have a lot of choices here, so drinking here is also a good.
