I am interested in learning how to say, colloquially, "Where is the best Izakaya around here?" Or "Where is the best Izakaya close to here?"

How far off am I with this translation below:


  • It also depends what you mean by "best". – istrasci Sep 20 '18 at 6:25

Your attempt is good, but you need to use この辺り【あたり】の instead of ここの to say "around here".

It is better to say delicious explicitly.

Perhaps you could use (ここの近ちかく) Meaning close to here/this locationここの近ちかくに居酒屋はどこですか。

    Unfortunately this sentence has two errors. 1) "近ちかく" is not a valid word. Please check the spelling. 2) You have to use の to modify 居酒屋 because it's a noun. – naruto Sep 19 '18 at 8:36
  • I wonder if answer OP meant to do 近{ちか}く – psosuna Sep 19 '18 at 16:53
