Last time I ate grilled eel on rice (Hitsumabushi) at Matsuzakayaten (one of 3 branches). I loved it. And this time, when I came back Nagoya I came Atsuta Horaiken Honten (head restaurant) to enjoy Hitsumabushi again. As I expected, It is great. I reminisced its delicious taste last time. Maybe Hitsumabushi food is the same quality between head restaurant... More

Always being the one to buy the 'nice' one from the shops, this doesn't compare! By far, this is the tenderest, most tasteful eel you will ever have had! And to boot, the staff are brilliant, from the guys outside helping you park to the ladies that serve you and the matre'd. They are all great and so attentive! The... More
