N 45th Street in Wallingford has become the defacto New Japantown of Seattle, dwarfing the historic Japantown in the International District by sheer numbers and diversity of Japanese restaurants. Issian is one of two classic, lively Japanese izakaya bars on N 45th Street participating in Alaska Herring Week 2017.

Wanna make this at home? You can purchase the same Alaska Herring fillets being used by Seattle’s top chefs for Alaska Herring Week from Central Coop on Capitol Hill, Freshy’s Seafood Market on Mercer Island, Old Ballard Liquor Co. in Ballard, and Wild Salmon Seafood Market at Fisherman’s Terminal!
