Be prepared for a loud and boisterous experience from the second you walk into Kinka Izakaya. Each time someone enters, the entire staff yells Irrashaimase! (welcome! in Japanese).
Located in the Faubourg on St. Catherine street amongst many other Asian eateries, and not too far from Imadake (another Izakaya that has definitely made a name for itself in Montreal) it is hard for a newcomer to stand out. However, Kinka Izakaya has done a brilliant job of gaining momentum on the competitive Izakaya playing field. Thanks to the stylish design, warm staff, and incredible dishes, they have mastered the recipe for success. The people behind this Izakaya are not new to this, having opened Guu and multiple other restaurants in Toronto.

When you visit this hotspot, these are some of the dishes that you must try (though there were another 20 items I wish I could have tried- I'll have to return for more!):
|Rapini and Mushroom Stir Fry|
|Pressed and Torched Salmon|
|Beef Udon Noodles|
|Green Tea Crème Brulée|
When you leave the restaurant, you will be sent-off with a cheer and the entire place waving goodbye to you.
You could now make reservations, and I highly recommend that you do, because it fills up quickly!
Mind, Taste, Love.
