Yes, This Tastes As Good As It Looks. But Wait, There’s More!

I’m happy to welcome another Izakaya into my life.  Lucky for me, it’s close to where I work in North Orange County.  Dami Sushi and Izakaya just opened about a month ago in Buena Park’s Village Circle on Beach Blvd.

Izakaya style restaurants offer patrons the opportunity to share multiple small dishes with beer and/or sake.  It’s my favorite type of dining because of the fantastic variety you get in 1 meal and it’s just plain fun.

The interior of Dami is beautifully modern yet cozy.  Izakaya restaurants are inherently laid back as to provide the perfect setting to unwind after a long day of work.  There are several TVs around the restaurant and one really cool 180″ projection system above the sushi bar that’ll feature sports and entertainment!  The vibe here is amazing.
