Akiyoshi Izakaya @ Automall, Karpal Singh Drive, Penang

By : Chha

Now, before I start, let me tell you what Izakaya mean. Izakaya is a type of Japanese bar in which a variety of small, typically inexpensive, dishes and snacks are served to accompany the alcoholic drinks. I was confused at first when a friend invited me over to Akiyoshi Izakaya at Automall, Penang, I mistaken it for another Izakaya elsewhere, haha ! Silly me .. ! Luckily I went to the correct place else I would have missed out the great time spend with friends and the nice environment at Akiyoshi Automall.

Akiyoshi Izakaya which is located at Automall, Karpal Singh Drive in Penang is an awesome place to go hang out with friends or family to try out their Japanese food. If you are there at night, you will even have the chance to enjoy listening to music perform by live band.

The environment inside Akiyoshi is comfortable and nice with some of the seating place overlooking Karpal Singh Drive and the sea, which i find it kinda awesome .. !

I like how the place is organize and decorated. It looks like a high class restaurant with bars and mini stage for band to perform on. There is also a corner where you can sit and enjoy the chef perform their cooking behind closed glass counter.

Kaki Furai RM 28.00
(Deep Fried Oyster)

Akiyoshi Automall

Kaki Furai or also known as the Deep Fried Oyster is really crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. I can't actually tell that i am eating an Oyster, well, at least it take off my guilt of eating too much seafood, haha ! Most of the Japanese restaurant elsewhere serve them raw but in Akiyoshi, you can have them Deep Fried, which i find it kinda different and not something that you can commonly get elsewhere.

It would definitely be refreshing to have a couple of drinks here after your meal in Akiyoshi. Even if you are too full to eat here, you can always come here for a couple of drinks while enjoy the nice environment here. I would say the live band is a plus to this area. Imagine having a nice cold drink in a nice environment enjoying music, isn't that awesome ? haha !
