Unagi holds a special place in Japanese cuisine — a delicacy which is traditionally believed to give strength and stamina. If you find yourself in need of a delicious pick-me-up, Unagi Uomasa is one of the best places to try it for yourself, just a short hop, skip, and jump from Yotsugi Station.
Here you can choose the specific type of eel you want when reserving, or put yourself in the safe hands of the staff with the set-course option. Their Bando Taro brand eel is not wild, but the producer is very highly reputed, and their farmed eel has the same sweetness as the wild specimens, with the added benefit of ensuring consistency across every dish served.
The chefs here are masters of the traditional method of cooking. First the eel is grilled, then steamed to remove any excess fat, then grilled again. The result is a golden, crispy skin which conceals unbelievably soft and melty flesh. You’ll likely have to wait for about 45 minutes after ordering but it's worth it; that’s how long it takes to get the tenderness in the meat.
Their secret recipe sauce has been a hit for the entirety of their 36 year history — the cherry on top of one of the best unagi meals in all of Tokyo.
