Ookuniya Eelbei pursues the ultimate taste of eel and rice at Nishiki-Market.

Ookuniya, a restaurant specializing in river fish and eel in Nishiki Market, has opened an eat-in restaurant on Sakai-cho-dori. The restaurant pursues simple deliciousness and cooks rice in a special earthenware pot made in Hikone's Isshiro Kiln after receiving an order.

When the eel is finished cooking, the domestic eel is grilled. The crackling of the binchotan charcoal and the fragrant aroma tickling your nose are part of the enjoyment of the wait. Then, when you put the plump eel meat, crispy skin, and glossy rice in your mouth, you will be impressed by its strong and deep flavor.
