TOKYO | Located down a small alleyway in Omotesando is GALALI, one of the more modern looking izakayas that we’ve visited. The two storey space feels part izakaya, part restaurant, with a quite sophisticated look.

The place is popular with the lunch and after work dinner crowd in the area and has a great atmosphere about it. The food is simple and tasty, with an assortment of izakaya style dishes executed brilliantly. Charcoal grilled seafood and vegetables are a highlight, and there’s a real attention to detail across the menu. There’s even an entire menu page dedicated to salt – 12 different kinds are offered.

We visited during lunch and opted for one of the lunch sets which lets you pick and choose a variety of items. Smoked fish with daikon was fantastic, as was the simply grilled chicken thigh. Rice, a traditional soup, and a few additional bite size sides completed the set nicely. For just a snack, try the tempura lotus root, which is light and crispy, and elevated by the specific salt used.

If you’re not hungry and just want a drink GALALI is still worth checking out. There’s a very good selection of spirits and sake, and the casual atmosphere makes it a place you can visit solo (there’s a bar counter downstairs) or with a group.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
