Daya Izakaya

Have you heard of Izakayas? They're wildly popular due to their typically inexpensive offerings of dishes and snacks, which are also usually paired with alcoholic beverages. HOWEVER, there is a halal izakaya where we can enjoy a similar atmosphere too! Tucked away at Jalan Kayu, this establishment serves a variety of dishes on its menu, from agemono to kushiyaki, and even ramen! There is also sashimi and sushi that you can grab too! They have a ton of Japanese finger foods that you can grab starting from $2.
