Dining News: Izakaya Daikoku at 19th & S to Open on Wednesday
September 28, 2014
Izakaya Daikoku, located at 19th & S, will open on Wednesday, Oct. 1, a waiter at sister restaurant RyuJim Ramen House told diners (and a trusted Cowtown Eats source) over this weekend.
Izakaya Daikoku has said it will serve dishes in the traditional izakaya style, which is a sort of Japanese tapas.
The restaurant shares owners with RyuJin Ramen House in the Safeway parking lot at 19th & S, and Akebono in Land Park.
Per Sac Biz Journal, they will also serve sushi, sashimi and other dishes available at Akebono.
According the waiter, Izakaya Diakoku was scheduled to open this past week but was delayed due to a last minute hiccup.
I'm very excited for the new restaurant. I'm a big fan of the owner's other restaurants and look forward to trying a traditional izakaya in Sacramento.
