Tucked into a shopping center in sight of the Perimeter, Shoya serves Japanese small plates that pair delightfully with shochu & sake. Sushi is available, but the plates are the star - try the cod & okonomiyaki
Playful Japanese Fare Pleases Endlessly – Nearly lost in the behemoth-of-a-shopping complex it’s tucked away in, Japanese fun-house Shoya Izakaysa endlessly nails the execution of its scores of dishes. Try as many small(ish) sized plates your stomach and/or wallet can bear. From simple grilled head-on shrimp to the omelet-and-pork dish that is literally moving when it hits your table (tobiko flakes seemingly dance before your eyes), you will rarely, if ever, miss. The pages of unique sochu cocktails should be thumbed over carefully for a playful change of pace from the usual martini, which is the main point of this restaurant; taking the norm, and standing it on it’s head.
Japanese gastropub gets small plates right OTP. – In Short
Sitting just North of the perimeter in a partially hidden shopping center, Shoya is a Japanese version of a gastropub. The menu is enormous and stretches from sinfully bad items like grilled chicken skin and deep fried potato cakes, to delicate flounder sashimi and tender grilled octopus. Plates are small, cheap and are way more fun when they’re shared. A massive Japanese cocktail list (made with Shochu instead of liquor) makes up for their lack of beer selection. So roll with a group of friends, order adventurously and enjoy a type of Japanese you didn’t know existed.
