Love the unagi here! There was a nice chargrilled exterior and relatively soft eel fillet underneath. Although I did wish it could be a bit thicker? This dish is to be eaten in 3 ways - first with the unagi and rice, second with the condiments like the wasabi and green onions, and third is with the lightly flavoured dashi broth! This set also comes with unagi chawanmushi which was delicious too!

Was really craving for some unagi and after reading and comparing online reviews on several unagi specialty shops such as Man man unagi (which was said to have a sweet sauce) and Uya (which was said to be less crispy and had more bones), i decided to choose Unagiya ichinoji. Especially after reading @sethluicious review on the Unagi showdown, comparing these 3 shops.

Had the unagi hitsumabushi (L) $38.80 which i shared with my mum. WOW I AM SOLD😍😍 we opted for the tokyo sauce which was more savoury as compared to the singapore sauce (sweeter as it was tailored to the local tastebud i guess). Love that the sauce had the right amount of savoury and sweetness and did not overpower the taste of the unagi. Also the unagi was plump and had a slight nice charred crispy texture😍. The rice was soft and slightly chewy, complementing well with the softness of the unagi. The dashi stock had this unami taste which we like😊

Taste: 4/5 (really love that the sauce wasnt too sweet and love the unagi's slightly crisp exterior with soft interior)
Worth it: 3.75/5 (the L size was just nice for 2pax, plus there was decent amount of unagi)
Ambience: 3.5/5 (we went at lunch time and weekday, hence there were lesser people perhaps)
Overall: 7.75/10

No go
Can go
Must go😊 try it if you crave for unagi and feel lazy to queue for Man man unagi.

They have 2 outlets in Singapore. One at suntec and one at robertson quay!


Unagiya Ichinoji 鳗家一の字 in Singapore is the first overseas outlet of the 125-years-old unagi specialist restaurant in Tokyo. Unagiya Ichinoji serves unagi in 3 forms - hitsumabushi, seiro mushi and mamushi donburi.

Approx $32/pax
Slightly charred unagi that melts in your mouth. Its cooked perfectly, charred on the outside and soft on the inside. The set was great, the soups brings a diff experience. Its worth a try! Defo going back again!

My new favourite unagi place. This set cost $12 with a Klook deal (originally about ~$35). Go and try for yourself!

Seize the promotion on klook and i get to enjoy this pot of goddness for just 10 over bucks! It was a set in M size with the unagi rice, chawamushi and soup. The unagi was grilled to charred, crispy on the outside but i can’t taste much of the unagi itself. The tokoyo sauce that he recommend was very light.
