Isekai Izakaya "Nobu"

One of the best parts of travelling is getting to sample new cuisines. For me, finding and enjoying delicious foreign food is part of the experience. This time however, the author takes things to another level by transporting Japanese cuisine into a whole new world. Isekai Izakaya "Nobu" is a light novel series that has been adapted into manga and next month, will have its anime debut!

Imagine a bar which serves a variety of food and drinks that makes you feel like you have been transported to another world! In the Old Capital, there is just such a bar. Called "Nobu", it's located in a back alley, where its food wins over the city's inhabitants.

Isekai Izakaya "Nobu" definitely doesn't skimp on its food offerings. Between Japan and the Old Capital ingredients, the chef serves up dish after dish of authentic Japanese food that makes me wish I live within the manga pages! From perennial bar favourites of beer and karaage, to tofu soup for the fussy eaters, there's a dish or drink suitable for everyone who drops by.

Perhaps because it is adapted from a light novel, the characters' personalities shine through more than I expected, which is a pleasant surprise. While there doesn't seem to be a strongly recurring storyline, the series' focus is on food so I don't find the lack of a serious plot much of an issue. In fact, I'm happy simply adding more dishes to my to-try list every time I read a new chapter. I am, however, slightly curious about how this otherworldly bar works!

Admittedly, I have not read its light novel. However, since I enjoyed the manga, I'm looking forward to the anime next month. If you are fond of Japanese food, I recommend checking it out!
