I regained my vigor with the very first spoonful. The eel boasted a vibrant color, and its taste closely resembled that of the mainland. Crafted by owner chef Hiroyuki Kudo and hitsumabushi master chef Choi Hwa-hyung, this is an authentic Nagoya-style eel bowl. Surrounding you, you’ll hear the staff chatting in Japanese, adding to the authentic atmosphere. With ample parking and friendly service, it’s a delightful spot to visit.

The eel was expertly grilled to perfection, sourced domestically from freshwater. Its flesh offers a delightful chewiness, complemented by the crispy skin. While the flavor leans slightly towards the salty side, some may find it just right. Opting for a special order, the portion of eel is generous, ensuring satisfaction until the very last bite. The rice, akin to sushi grains, boasts a plump and harmonious texture, adding to the overall enjoyment.

Traditionally, there are four ways to enjoy it, but each bite is equally gratifying, no matter how you choose to indulge. The steamed egg, pickled radish side dish, and salad provided a refreshing and vibrant accompaniment. It’s evident that meticulous care has gone into every detail, with the steamed egg boasting a rich and savory flavor that serves as a delightful appetizer.
