My favorite Unagi ( eel) restaurant in Tokyo 宮川本店

If you come to Japan, or live in Japan, one of the things you must eat is Unagi!
Most of the eel in the supermarket or at the regular restaurant, is imported eel and very oily texture because they’re cultivated.

Japanese one is much light, and fluffy texture.
You can taste it only in Japan 🙂

My favorite restaurant is 宮川本店 (Miyagawa Honten) in Ginza area.

The second floor is Tatami floore, and the restaurant has relaxing atmosphere..

They basically have only two menus as same as any professional eel restaurant, “Shira yaki” ( no sauce, you can dip it with soy sauce and Wasabi when you eat it) and “Kaba yaki” ( regular one).
And you can choose the size 🙂

Only thing you have to be careful is, it takes about 30mins. to be served after you order the eel.
Because after they have the order, they start cooking eel and it normally takes time.

By the way, I watched the TV and fount out there’re “cucumber pickle bread” in a certain area in Japan.. (Kobe area)
It looks like a hot dog, but they just Japanese pickle instead of sausage..
and I heard the taste is nice.
I wanna try it, but it’s not in Tokyo area..
