I was not really expect hitsumabushi can taste like this. I did not read a lot before trying so a little awkward when asking how to. But the taste of the rice is really different after adding the soup. Great try and impressive

This shop has a designated carpark which is very convenient if you're driving there. If this is your first time then Hitsumabushi is the definite dish of choice. You get grilled unagi (eel) in a large wooden bowl, and they also provide instructions in English...More
