Izakayas are known as pubs where Japanese food in the form of sharing plates and drinks such as sake, beer and highballs come together.
These quaint joints might have started in Japan, but have since expanded to be integral in Singapore. So much so that the best Izakaya in Singapore make for perfect spots for business dinners to casual get-togethers and dates.
However, dining at Izakayas in Singapore is a bit different now. As of August 12, 2021, those not vaccinated in Singapore can only dine in at coffee shops and hawker centres. The good news is you can still recreate this Izakaya experience at home with the best 2021 Japanese bar bites and alcohol deliveries in Singapore.

Here at Urbanfindr, we believe that it is possible to recreate that vibrant and cheerful Izakaya experience from the comfort of your very own home. All you need is the right food and drink delivery options – and in this case, Japanese bar bites and sake or highballs that pair beautifully with them.
The best part? You get to pick whether you want to go full out and splurge on premium Japanese food delivery choices, stick to reliable and accessible Izakaya deliveries in Singapore, or have a mix of both.
