Warajiya Introspection

Eel Restaurant [Warajiya] in Shichijo, standing on the spot where Hideyoshi visited, serves Uzofusui.

It is said that whenever Toyotomi Hideyoshi visited the nearby Houkouji Temple, he would take a rest in a house that had been built here, taking off his straw sandals. It was shortly after World War II that the long-established Warajiya, which has such an origin in its name, started serving its specialty, Uzofusui. The restaurant began to make zosui by making use of ingredients that were precious at the time.

Currently, the Unabe and Uzofusui course is the most popular menu. Unabe is a ginger-flavored soup with sliced eel, grilled leeks, and shonai fu, while Uzofusui is a dish filled with grilled eel, homemade rice cake, burdock root, and shiitake mushrooms, all flavored with broth. The fresh domestic eel delivered in the morning is carefully processed, and its rich flavor will soothe your soul.

In Kyoto, many customers say that it is a taste that has been familiar to their families for generations. Many writers and celebrities, such as Junichiro Tanizaki, have visited this restaurant with its serene atmosphere, where you can enjoy eel with a sense of the history that has been engraved in your mind.
