Japanese Izakaya situated at ground level of a heartland mall. Moippai, which means “one more please” in Japanese, serves up a wallet-friendly variety of kushiyaki (grilled skewers of meat, seafood and vegetables) ranging from $1 to $3, along with a series of aburi (torched) sushi, sushi rolls, sashimi, small plates and a few rice dishes. Signature char-grilled kushiyaki are Tebasaki (chicken wings – $2), Kurobuta Enoki (pork belly with golden mushroom – $3), and Unagi ($6), while sushi like the Aka Ebi Mentai, a torched seared Argentinean giant red shrimp sushi with spicy pollack roe ($4 per piece), the Salmon Aburi, which is torched seared Norwegian salmon sushi with avaocado and black fish roe ($2), and the Ebi Fry Tanuki, comprising of eight pieces of prawn maki with tempura batter, spicy tuna sauce and mentaiko ($16) makes up the rest of the remaining signature items in Moippai’s menu.

Pair your sake and beer with the $1 Shishamo (smelt fish) skewer that is absolutely bang for your buck.
