Also on the fringes of the Concordia China-town, Imadake is the closest thing to an authentic izakaya in the city. Staff scream irrashaimase! (welcome!) when you walk in, and there’s an excellent assortment of izakaya standbys like tsukune (chicken meatballs), takoyaki (grilled octopus) and yakiika (grilled cuttlefish). The ramen noodles are excellent.
