New Kids on the Block
A new late night eatery is in town and lucky for us it is right across the street from our little shop. The second of its kind here in Eugene, not to be confused with the lovely, unaffiliated Izakaya Meiji (still the home of the most delicious whiskey ginger!), Izakaya Oyazi is a Japanese style pub featuring a variety of small dishes and an inviting atmosphere.
It was a Friday night. The week was done and the shiny weekend lay before us. Laura and I considered it our responsibility, nay, our duty, to go out and give Izakaya Oyazi a try!
I treated myself to a sake flight of three, infused with green apple, lychee, and white peach. SO, so good. Laura had a blackberry mojito and it made us feel like we were on vacation.
We ordered some small plates to share, including gyoza (above), potato croquette, and green beans (below). So much yum.
We drank and ate and passed around plates and had the best time trying something new. We’re excited to watch this young restaurant grow and evolve, and we hope you are, too!
Welcome to the neighborhood, Izakaya Oyazi!
