Awesome atmosphere, fun foods, delicious drinks!

DonDon Izakaya is Toronto's own little taste of Japan. I once visited Tokyo on a business trip, and I remember going to this strange thing called an "izakaya" on several occasions. I remember my first time: I didn't understand why we couldn't just order our own dishes or why it had to be so loud! But by the end of the night, after several decanters of sake had been shared among our group, it all just seemed perfect. DonDon kinda feels this way too. The food may not be gourmet, but it's a ton of fun to eat! (I've heard that we shouldn't expect high-quality foods from izakayas since they are more like pubs anyway!) And the atmosphere is spot on. Oh, and don't even get me started on the drinks. I fell in love with sake in Japan and we've been reunited at DonDon. I've only been to DonDon once, but I'll definitely be going back again!

Don Don Izakaya is home to the infamous Polar Beer. Originally from Japan, the frozen beer made its debut in Toronto the summer of 2015, and has become a summer drink staple. The Sapporo beer has a sub zero foam that keeps the beer fresh and cold until the lost drop.

Rough and ready, the taiko drum at the entrance to Don Don says it all. On these premises, batch after batch of pan-seared Ja-Ja Beef goes easily down the hatch. A bottle of Kirin lager follows perfectly, balancing the salty umami of the beef with the sharp carbonation of the beer. Don Don’s open space and frenetic energy pays homage to the frenzied life of Tokyo natives. On Dundas, west of Bay, Don Don is open until 1 am on Fridays and Saturday – perfect for a late night Japanese nosh after a night on the town.
