Uya 四代目菊川 aims to offer affordable and authentic Japanese traditional unagi cuisine to the masses in Singapore. Our eels are carefully selected to ensure the ideal quality (colour, plumbness and tenderness) to match our own tare (sauce). The tare used in Uya 四代目菊川 is made using a sauce base that has been a family secret for over 4 generations and was specially brought over from Japan to Singapore.

We loved the food here. The Unagi was charred nicely and the portions were huge. We celebrated my mom’s birthday here and the staff were so warm and friendly. Highly recommended.

The unagi is delightfully smoky, crunchy and flavourful. I’d eat it every week if it were not so pricey. They use all parts of the eel here. Not all dishes are successful: The crispy bones are delectable; the grilled liver is interesting; the deep fried liver a bit too heavy; the liver ponzu is less good than ankimo. Avoid the fish skin salad; when we were there, the fish skin is so chewy it’s almost disgusting.

Uya Japanese Unagi Restaurant 四代目菊川 on level 2 of Wheelock Place is known for its unagi hitsumabushi.
The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the unagi is crispy on the outside and tender inside.

Always wanted to try out uya bc I really love unagi and wanted to see how it compares to manman 🤪 There was no queue during dinner time on a weekday hence everything was pretty speedy.
.
Hitsumabushi M (~$35) was slightly pricier than ManMan. There was a generous portion of meaty unagi, grilled well and crispy (esp the skin)! Rice was sticky and moist, but imo the sauce wasn’t tasty enough (or maybe it simply wasn’t enough) bc some parts of the rice didn’t have much taste.
.
Dashi broth was really good and I liked how it wasn’t too salty Nor take away the sweetness of the unagi sauce. Overall I’d say uya’s unagi was less smoky than ManMan’s and I personally prefer ManMan but Uya is still really good.

🍣Talking about Wagyu Bowls makes me reminisce our many trips to Japan🇯🇵 where exploring food gems formed the bulk of our itinerary. We practically 🚶🏼‍♀️ walked from morning to night, hoping to burn off some calories since we were almost eating something every hour.
.
Got a little excited with Uya’s Rare Wagyu Rice Bowl ($27) which comes with thinly sliced wagyu- a little fatty but not too overpowering, onsen egg and fried garlic chips ( My fav!). Wish there was more beef though haha
