If there's one of the many things to love about Japan, it's their little izakayas, which are casual bars that serve small dishes and alcoholic beverages

Izakayas are scattered all over Japan, especially in urban areas like Tokyo, where locals will get together for drinks after work.

With everything going on in the world right now, it appears that you won't have to leave Malaysia to experience a taste of this!

Located in Damansara Jaya, PJ is a small izakaya-style bar called Tansen Izakaya and it has all the cosy vibes, similar to those in Japan

Its interior is sectioned into smaller parts with wooden tables and chairs.

And lining the ceiling and walls are Japanese posters and lanterns, along with sake and whiskey bottles.

Aside from drinks, the restaurant-bar, which opened last year, serves a variety of Japanese food like yakitori, sashimi, and ramen

Had a long day? Take a breather and enjoy an ice cold Suntory or Sapporo beer. Plus, they have set lunches and happy hours throughout the week.

Here's where Tansen Izakaya is located:

36, Jalan SS 22/25, Damansara Jaya,
47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
