Ibizarte in Yakuin is the sister bar of Ibiza, a rustic Spanish restaurant in the mountains of Ukiha known for handmade sausages. The owner’s son, Ippei Obana, who was born in Ibiza, now tends the bar, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Enjoy a taste of Spain with a handmade sangria and traditional sausages, like the spicy, smoky chorizo and the meaty salsiccia. Both go great with their handmade mustard. Try the shrimp al ajillo or another tapas dish to complement your choice of Spanish wine. Great place to take a friend for a relaxing evening.
