In Japan, if folks want to go out for a drink, they don’t head to the pub. Drinking should go hand in hand with eating to keep everything in balance, so they head to the izakaya, where there’s ample food geared toward those who may also be enjoying a beer or two. If you’re looking for that experience in Atlanta, head to Shoya Izakaya in Doraville, where you’ll get an authentic taste of how fun it can be to go out for some drinks and food in Japan.

There’s an incredibly expansive menu, with starters, sushi, grilled seafood, ramen, rice dishes, and desserts. Menu standouts include crispy fried chicken karaage, grilled salmon belly, miso cod, takoyaki (round octopus pancakes, a popular street food), fried soft shell crab, roast pork, and traditional tonkotsu ramen.

A real highlight of the menu (and every izakaya menu) is the selection of yakitori, or skewers of meat and vegetables cooked directly over an open flame. At Shoya, there are dozens of options, ranging from the tame (pork belly, chicken) to the exotic (chicken heart, Bakudan egg).
