Enjoy steamed and grilled eel at Unashige near the Kyoto Imperial Palace

March 01, 2022 open

Reshape industry conventions and infuse your sense of purpose into something better. An eel specialty store that uses such flexibility to create a new style. The owner, Mr. Mori, who has a French background and is also a certified sommelier, wears custom-made work shirts suitable for work. ``The company I used to work for decided to open an eel restaurant, and as I learned the basics, I became fascinated with eel as an ingredient.''


Shirayaki 4100 yen. The surface is baked crispy while locking in the flavor. Taste with ginger and salt instead of the usual wasabi soy sauce

Behind the counter, there is a live eel in a custom-made fish tank. ``More than the place of origin, we are more particular about taste and size.The 4.8p size we order has soft bones and skin, and is also thick.We start steaming after you place your order, so you can enjoy the unique Kanto-style deliciousness. Masu".


After steaming, it is dipped in a mildly sweet sauce and then grilled three times. It doesn't feel greasy at all, just a rich flavor that spreads in your mouth. On days when you want to indulge a bit, start by toasting with Shirayaki, which is garnished with ginger and goes well with wasabi. Enjoy beer, sake, wine, etc. and relax while waiting for the chef to appear.


Unaju (large) 6,600 yen. While a single fish is enough to satisfy your appetite, the extravagance of one and a half fish on top is exceptional. Rice is Kinuhikari from Shiga (price is subject to change)

When the eel is served, do not open the lid immediately and leave it for about 1 minute. Enjoy when the eel and rice are close in temperature and create a sense of unity.


Shopkeeper Juta Mori
From being a French/Italian chef, he became an eel chef. [Bistro MORI Tuesday 〇〇], which was held in a shared space in Nagahama before opening, also became a hot topic.
