Thank you Mary , I understand the Izakaya specialized in fish maybe do not want to have hot devices( Binchotan charcoal) in the kitchen to not spoil the fish!
have a nice evening!
It may depend by the type of Izakayas but below are standard Izakaya dishes in my mind:
3. Dashimaki Tamago (Japanese omelette seasoned with dashi broth)
5. Potato Salad
Some Izakayas specialize more on seafood and may not have dishes such as yakitori on menu.
