Visit this specialty unagi restaurant, housed in a charmingly renovated machiya (townhouse), for Kansai-style grilled eel in Kyoto.

Restaurant Details

As the sole item on the menu, Okuniya Manbei’s reputation lives and dies by the quality of its unagi (freshwater eel). Grilled in the Kansai kabayaki style (butterflied and roasted, never steamed), the exterior of the unagi is crisp while the center remains tender. Slathered with a sweet glaze, Okuniya Manbei’s signature dish is served with a side of freshly-steamed rice and various pickles. Made to order in specialized earthenware pots, guests will have to wait up to thirty minutes for their steamed rice. A little patience is required in the reservation department as well; with limited quantities of domestic unagi available and only twelve counter seats, booking ahead is necessary. After tasting the unagi and rice separately, guests have the option of enjoying them in the form of ochazuke. Simply mix them together and add hot green tea for a stomach-warming end to the meal.
