What are so special?
The first thing that you notice when you enter Ishinomaki Grill & Sake Bar is its beautiful interiors that resemble that of a Japanese fishing village. The decors – simple fishing tools and implements – wonderfully complement the wooden fixtures and metal accents.
You would half-expect a fisherman to come dragging his day’s catch as you take gulps of premium sake and shochu, in which Ishinomaki takes great pride.
Sharing the spotlight with premium Japanese drinks are the mouthwatering, authentic robatayaki dishes whose taste will transport you to The Land of the Rising Sun. The chefs at Ishinomaki know their robatayaki, so much so that it occupies three pages of the menu.
Fish and seafood are among the best-selling yaki items as these are grilled fresh to render flavor and succulence that is like no other. Not to miss are Hotate Kani Ougon Yaki (Baked Creamy Scallops and Crab Meat and Mushrooms) – $22, Unagi Kabayaki (Grilled Eel) – $24, and Surume Ika (Grilled Japanese Squid in Ginger Sauce) – $18.
Matching their extensive robatayaki menu is the vast choices of sake that pair perfectly with their yaki, noodles, sushi and sashimi items. Popular sake options include Kiku Masamune Kaho Gura – $32, Hakusisha Nama – $25, and Funaguchi Kikusui Nama Genshu – $12.
