En (Balaclava)


Since February 2009, En Izakaya has been creating an innovative and more modern approach to Japanese cuisine not yet seen in Melbourne. Recent renovations using a contemporary version of 'kaminka' - old Japanese style of wooden housing without nails, has complimented the exciting dining environment which is the En Izakaya experience.

En’s kanji character can be translated to ‘drinking party’. Our concise list of wine, beer & Japanese nihonshu (sake) have been expertly designed to match the vegetarian, seafood and meat dishes on offer.

Using combined traditional and contemporary Japanese methods of cooking & preparation, Chef Kota Ogawa's dishes remain wholly focused on taste, texture, aroma & appearance. The result is a highly creative, exciting & unique izakaya inspired menu.
