"Izakaya - the Japanese Pub Cookbook celebrates…unlikely foodie haunts and their cuisine, combining shochu-soaked anecdotes and pen portraits of izakaya chefs with recipes for their tasty snacks and appetizers." —Reuters
"…delightful…Robinson’s book is more a paean to the vibrant and complicated izakaya culture than a definitive cooking guide…but the recipes, more than 60 of them, are the sort you wish more neighborhood restaurant chefs in New York would read." —The New York Times Book Review
"Izakaya "profiles several popular restaurants that offer affordable eclectic fare." —USA Today
"A unique work, recommended for most collections." —Library Journal (Starred review)

Unfortunately, this book attempts too many things and provides too little depth to really get a feel for any one. For a book about drinking establishments, you'd think they would have lots of information on alcohol. This is not the case, as there are really only three pages on the subject. Similarly, the author writes a few pages on each izakaya, but offers relatively little overview and no real conclusions drawn from this exploration.
Ultimately, this is a fun book to have, but not an essential on anyone's cookbook shelf.
They selected good authentic Izakaya from Tokyo in this book. I am a Japanese . I think it is not only for foreign country people who likes Japanese style. Japanese can enjoy this book too.
I can not wait to visit these Izakaya when I go to Tokyo next.
