Japanese Izakaya Restaurant and Bar Opening in Memorial

A reader sends this photo of a suite being renovated in the Memorial Bend Shopping Park, where a Japanese izakaya-style restaurant and bar is planning to begin serving, the reader suspects, sometime near the end of the year. And a brief in Ultimate Memorial shows that Izakaya Wa requested last month the permits to operate here at 12665 Memorial Dr., which is just east of the Beltway 8 feeder.

  • My parents live right across the Beltway from this location. Anyone ever been to a Japanese izakaya-style place to eat? What’s it like?

  • An izakaya is basically a casual Japanese bar that serves food. Think of it as the Japanese version of a British pub with drinks and simple bar food like yakitori, shumai, ramen, etc. Houston is ready for one IMO.

  • Sweet. A non-franchise restaurant in my neck of the woods. Can’t wait. I wonder how the beer selection will be. 22oz Japanese bombers?
