[Tokyo] Izumo Ikebukuro (いづも 池袋): Cozy and Casual Unagi Izakaya

Discover Authentic Japanese Delights at Izumo Ikebukuro

Indulge in the authentic flavors of Japan at Izumo Ikebukuro, a charming Izakaya just a stone’s throw from the west exit of Ikebukuro station. This casual eatery, offering an array of nourishing and invigorating dishes, such as eel skewers, beef tongue skewers, and grilled chicken, is perfect for those seeking upscale cuisine in a budget-friendly, laid-back setting.

For a delicious lunch, try the Unatama-don bowl, a hearty serving of 750g, topped with a rich three-egg omelet and a generous portion of eel. Or, for a unique experience, try the Unagyu-don, recommended by Dishes Japan – a succulent combination of stir-fried beef tenderloin, garlic soy sauce, and plump eel. Choose from either 100g or 300g to suit your appetite.

Izumo’s eel is a standout dish, with its thickness, plumpness, and satisfying texture. The key to its rich flavor lies in the proprietary sauce, expertly crafted to enhance the eel and rice, which is added in slow increments to create a one-of-a-kind taste. Busy professionals can savor this dish without a wait, as the sauce is designed to be served quickly. Say goodbye to the notion that eel takes too long to grill, and make it your next lunchtime treat at Izumo Ikebukuro.
