Izakaya Wasa

We have passed Izakaya Wasa probably 100 times in Irvine Spectrum.
For some reason, we’ve never tried the place.
We finally stepped in for the first.
And we were quite happy with our dinner experience.

我們可能在Irvine Spectrum經過Izakaya Wasa一百次了吧,
但是不知道為什麼,從來沒有進去過,
這次來逛街時終於絕對試試看,
這頓晚餐吃得很滿意喔!

Izakaya Wasa Poke Don
Poke Don – Assorted sashimi tossed in poke sauce over rice, served with miso soup | $13.50

We ordered two entrees to share.
The first one was Poke Don.
Large pieces of fresh sashimi included salmon, tuna, albacore, yellowtail, halibut, and shrimp.
The poke sauce was traditional style with sesame oil.
We prefer the Japanese style poke more than the American style with mayonnaise sauce.
The poke bowl was very good, and portion was huge.
It also came with a bowl of miso soup.

我們點了兩道主食一起分食,
第一道是夏威夷生魚蓋飯,
生魚片給的大方又大塊,
有鮭魚,鮪魚,青花魚,黃尾魚,比目魚還有蝦子,
醬汁是比較傳統的日式口味,帶有很香的芝麻油,
我們很喜歡這種口味,比起現在美式poke那種滿滿美乃滋醬的好吃多了,
生魚蓋飯超大一碗,份量十足,而且真的很好吃,
還有附贈一碗味增湯。

Izakaya Wasa 3 Items Combination Dinner

The second entree was the 3 items combination dinner.
There were so many good choices for the items, and it was hard to decide what items to order.
We opted for teriyaki beef, sesame chicken, and spicy tuna rolls.
When the bento box came to the table, we were very surprised by how large the portion was.
Included with the 3 items were miso soup, rice, salad, seaweed salad, and shumai.
We were expecting 2 pieces of spicy tuna rolls with the combination.
Instead we got 8 pieces, a whole roll!
Teriyaki beef was cooked to medium. Very tender.
The teriyaki sauce was not overly sweet, just the way we like it.
Sesame chicken was not bad, but it wasn’t what we expected.
We thought it was the fried chicken pieces without any sauce.
Izakaya Wasa’s version had a sweet and spicy sauce over the fried chicken.
Love the seaweed salad and Japanese shumai.

第二道是三道菜套餐,
有好多種不同的菜色可以選擇,
看起來都很好吃所以我們想好久,
最後選了照燒牛肉,芝麻雞,和辣鮪魚壽司捲。
便當一上桌馬上被他們的大尺寸嚇一跳,
除了有三道菜,還有附贈味增湯,白飯,生菜沙拉,海帶沙拉和兩顆燒賣。
本來以為這種套餐附贈的壽司捲可能只來兩個吧,
結果是滿滿八個一整捲啊!
照燒牛肉給的是整塊牛排,煎到五分熟,很嫩,
醬汁也不會過甜,剛好是我們喜歡的口味,
芝麻雞我們就沒有很喜歡,不是難吃,只是跟我們要點的不一樣,
我們以為是沒有醬汁的日式炸雞塊,
結果這家的是炸雞塊配上有點甜有點辣的濃稠醬汁,
海帶沙拉和日式燒賣都好好吃。

We are glad that now we have another great choice for food in Irvine Spectrum.
Will definitely return again to try more food on the menu.

很高興在Irvine Spectrum又有個可以用餐的好地方,
以後一定還會再來多試試其他的菜色。
