About the restaurant
izakaya
(居酒屋)
Japanese Pub

A type of Japanese drinking establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. They are casual places for after-work drinking. "Izakaya" entered the English language by 1987. It is a compound word consisting of "i" (to stay) and "sakaya" (sake shop), indicating that izakaya originated from sake shops that allowed customers to sit on the premises and drink.

The basics...
…Order a drink.
Explore the menu.
Ask as many questions as you want.
Almost everything on the menu can be shared.

Kanpai!

This is such a hidden gem!! It was mine and my husband’s first time to Denver and a friend recommended and it DID NOT disappoint. Everything we had was incredible but the cherry on top was that Mossimo the owner was so kind and attentive. We truly appreciated how he took the time to thoroughly explain the dishes as well as the service that he provided. It is hard to come by these days but it’s what truly makes all the difference. We sat outside so it was perfect and not loud at all, inside was definitely busier! A MUST TRY!! If I could give 10 stars I would.

So glad we decided to give this hidden gem in Erie a try. The drinks were creatively done ( I was jealous of the little whale and elephant drinks for the alcoholic versions) and the food was excellent. We had non-alcoholic drinks, some appetizers and tacos sitting under the covered outdoor dining section. We loved our time here and enjoyed the food and drinks very much. Highly recommend the sweet potato and mushroom tacos for vegetarians-- best I've had here in Colorado. The shishito peppers for an appetizer were plentiful and we enjoyed them very much. Will be back -- can't wait to try the ramen when it gets cooler out.

I think that Land of Sushi is the best sushi in the Denver metro area. I've been to all the "top sushi" restaurants and yes, they are delicious, but I think mostly overrated. Land of Sushi is understated, in a strip mall, with an incredibly friendly staff and the best fish. It's a must for sushi lovers.
