Very refined, very good. And I understand why people are willing to queue hours for this.

The unagi was slow grilled over binchotan charcoal, and you can see that this unagi was grilled just enough so it wasn't over charred. One bite into it and I was amazed how tender it is, all the meat collapsed with the slightest pressure. Here, the sweet savoury sauce was used sparingly so what really stood out was the eel - how fresh, how tender it was.

It won't give you the super shiok feeling; there's no flavours explosion or a super crispy/charred exterior here. But you know this is one to be appreciated and savored slowly, more so when you have a lovely view of a mini Japanese garden right outside the window.

Many moons ago, on a trip to Kyoto, I followed my nose and chanced upon this Unagi-ya only to discover that it was the famed Hirokawa which has 1 Michelin star. After queuing for almost 2 hours, I was dying of hunger. My wait wasn't in vain. This is by far the best Unagi I have had. I can still remember how good it was. My only regret was not ordering the works!

Notoriously hard to get a seat in but absolutely worth it. @blueskiescottonclouds & I absolutely Loved it, @justinfoodprints you gotta go for the Unagi Pilgrimage. 🏵

ACAMASEATS & TIPS💮: Jyou una jyu Large (💴¥4,200/💵S$52) Edomae Unagi, using only carefully selected fresh eel caught daily, cooked slowly over a charcoal flame until fluffy & for something extra, try their steamed unagi. The refreshing kimosui is made with katsuo stock. 🤤

If you are able to get a seat, just go all out with their course meals. The recommendation will be Course A (💴¥3,900/💵S$48) If you are feeling adventurous & generous go for Course D that will set you back (💴¥9,600/💵S$120) 🖖🏻

If you are an Unagi enthusiast, this is it. This is where you come, this is an institution, this is your temple, a Pilgrimage here is a Must for all Unagi Lovers. 😋
