This grilled unagi shop in Nagoya is famed among gourmands for its thick cuts of eel which maintain a perfect balance of crispy skin and soft flesh. Due to its reputation for quality and value, expect to queue for up to an hour.
Also on offer are some eel-based appetizers like a soup made from the innards. The real pièce de résistance, however, is the hitsumabushi. This is a Nagoya style of preparing and eating eel, with four chopped pieces presented on a dish.
Each chunk is intended to be enjoyed differently. The first is plain; the second, with condiments; the third, with condiments and tea on top; and the final part is a freeform choice for you to repeat whichever of the previous three you loved the most.
Only a limited number available daily, as it uses more than just one eel and lots of eel livers, so be sure to arrive early if you want to be guaranteed a taste of this local delicacy.
