Restaurant Week Spotlight Menu: Daikaya Izakaya

Back in 2013, three masterminds came together to deliver one of the first ramen shops in D.C. and since then Washingtonians have lost their minds standing in line for hours to taste the craftsmanship of Daikaya’s superbly made noodles. Yet Daikaya is more than ramen as on its second floor sits their izakaya restaurant. Not familiar with izakaya? Don’t worry as it is simply a place to drink while sharing and eating yummy tidbits of food.  Check out their menu here Daikaya Izakaya Restaurant Week or see it below.
