WHAT TO EXPECT
Buya Izakaya+Yakitori brings Japanese gastropub food to Miami. Izakaya, or sit-down sake shops, are the equivalent to Spanish tapa bars and Irish pubs in Japan. Buya is serving chicken yakitori, grilled meats and veggie skewers known as Kushiyaki cooked on binchotan charcoal. Besides the food being delicious, there is a hidden cocktail den by the bar where you can sip on a curated menu of beer, wine, sake, and crafty cocktails.
Now let’s talk about the food! This menu is meant to be shared, so be prepared try a little bit of everything. Kushiyaki skewers include the Wagyu beef with a shisho chimichurri sauce, a tender fuji apple glazed Pork Belly and a light Yellowtail snapper with ponzu butter sauce. The menu also includes yakitori or chicken skewers, bowls, and a section called super rad. We’re not sure what super rad stands for but the dishes were rad.
WHAT TO ORDER
Chicken Thighs marinated to perfection, crispy chicken skins, and miso glazed quail.
If you are looking for hot pots, Buya offers three main Bowls the Oxtail Ramen is a must-try for it’s tender meat, rich broth, and soft noodles creating a delicious combination of flavors and texture.
