If one were to analyze the Japanese mentality of the izakaya dining experience it would be to drink, order, eat, and repeat. In Japan it is common to order a glass (or pitcher) of draft beer upon seating, "toriaezu nama," and only then begin deciding what to eat. Often, diners will order slowly, choosing a few dishes at a time as to not overwhelm the appetite. The idea is to take the time to enjoy a variety of flavors and to create one's own perfect meal.
