    A venerable traditional ryotei restaurant which was founded in 1873. The restaurant serves eel cuisine, including hitsumabushi eel on rice, a Nagoya specialty. The restaurant’s a la carte menu includes many dishes made with Aichi seafood. The unagi kaiseki eel course meal requires a reservation. The restaurant also offers a menu of takeout items which can be brought home to enjoy.

    I had a try at 3 out of the top 5 eel restaurants. This restaurant beats them all. Firstly order their classic Eel Bowl then Try the white unsauced eel and the liver if you have a bigger crowd. I am...

    Aichi Pref. Nagoyashi Naka-ku Sakae 3-30-8 Matsuzakaya Nagoya store South Front 10F
    This eel restaurant is located on the 10th floor of the South Building of Matsuzakaya department store in Naka Ward, Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture. The main location which registered the trademark for the “hitsumabushi” eel dish, has been around since 1873. They use specially selected high-quality eel and grill each one carefully over Kishu Bincho charcoal with their secret sauce that has been passed down over the years. The first bowl is usually eaten as-is; the second with spices; the third with tea poured over it; and the fourth however one pleases. The “unagi kaiseki” (eel banquet) is great for special gatherings.

    It was my first experience in Japan but no with the “Japanese food”. I wanted to try the real and best food and I can ensure it was the best donburi eel i hace never eaten before.

    Aichi Pref. Nagoyashi Naka-ku Osu 3-6-18
    A long standing restaurant dedicated to miso katsu cutlets, a Nagoya specialty. Since Yabaton was founded in 1947, it has continued to use only select ingredients and the same favorite recipes. Yabaton uses high quality pork with a focus on pork from southern Kyushu. The restaurant’s secret miso sauce is carefully prepared with soybean miso naturally fermented for a year and a half. Yabaton also takes care to keep the frying oil from getting too heavy and causing upset stomachs. In addition to eating in, the restaurant also sells popular take-home bento box lunches and tenderloin cutlet sandwiches. Yabaton also sells merchandise featuring the restaurant’s mascot, Bu-chan.

    I call it lunch but we actually had it at about 4pm. Fried pork with red miso sauce doesn’t sound like much but the taste grows on you as you bite into the second piece. There is a queue forming on...

    Aichi Pref. Nagoyashi Nishi-ku Jousai 4-20-12
    A restaurant which orders select eel from various areas depending on the season. Shirakawa’s hitsumabushi eel over rice is prepared with particular care and is extraordinary. Rich and flavorful, the hitsumabushi is made with a secret sauce which has been fermented, used, and topped off for decades; domestic brand-name rice; and a thin dashi stock. Pour hot tea over your rice leftovers to enjoy them chazuke style. The chef’s eye for quality ingredients, knife mastery, and intuition for when the eel is perfectly grilled all contribute to an overwhelming sense of craftsmanship (and flavor) that delights even the most discerning eel-lover. Located a two minute walk from Joshin Station on the Tsurumai Line.

    The restaurant is located on the 9th floor of Meitetsu Building along side with 8-10 other restaurants. Waiting time as displayed outside is about 20-30 mins. At about 4+, there is no queue but you...

    Aichi Pref. Nagoyashi Naka-ku Nishiki 3-13-22
    Ibasho serves one of Nagoya’s famous specialties: Hitsumabushi, a dish of chopped kabayaki (slow grilled with a special sauce) eel on rice said to go all the way back to the Taisho period (1912–1926). At Ibasho, when 2 or more customers order the Hitsumabushi it comes out in one big “hitsu” dish, which is apparently the traditional way of serving it. In addition to Hitsumabushi they have other kabayaki eel dishes including rice bowls, and whole long eels. It’s located about five minutes’ walk from subway Higashiyama Line Sakae Station.

    We were looking forward to having Nagoya-style eel at the branch of a well known ‘hitsumabushi’ restaurant in downtown Sakae but unfortunately it was closed that day so we ended up at Ibasho instead...

    The famous dish at Sekai-no-Yamachan is Maboroshi-no-Tebasaki, chicken wings with a taste that has not changed since its founding, and one of the popular aspects of this store is that all of the courses require three hours. Guests can relax and savor their dishes that come with a reasonable price and are very filling. The Miso Kushi Katsu and Miso Uzura (quail) Tamago Fry on the grand menu are also popular and many repeaters come back for them. It is approximately 10 minutes from Sakaemachi Station on the underground Meijo Line.

    Great fun family style restaurant. Economic prices and food full of flavor. They are famous for their chicken wings. These are a must try. Drinks were also good value. They become busy at dinnertime.

    Matsuno-ya is a long-established shop specializing in dengaku (bean curd baked and coated with miso) that was founded in the Meiji period and has carried on its traditions ever since it was established. The unchanging taste since the old days that is loved by the locals is available in four types of tofu, taro, pond snail and pork. The recommended dengaku set meal is Matsuno-ya’s standard menu of na-meshi (rice with greens) with dengaku and they go extremely well together. It is approximately three minutes on foot from Inuyama Station on the Meitetsu Inuyama Line.

    田楽が有名ですが、田楽しかない感じでした。 でんがく定食は豆腐の田楽と菜飯、お吸い物のセットですが、量的に物足りないです。 味も単調で飽きます。 メニューとしては芋田楽、肉田楽、タニシ田楽というのもあるようなので、 定食では何種類か、まぜた方が良いのかなーと思いました。 知っていたら初めからいろいろまぜて頼んだと思います。

    This famous restaurant in Miya-cho, Gamagori City in Aichi Prefecture has been frequently featured on TV. Try individual dishes, set-meals, and kaiseki (tradition multi-course Japanese food), all of which use fresh seafood from Mikawa Bay, so fresh that you can find them swimming in tanks in the store. One popular menu item is the Mikawa Seafood Rice Bowl which overflows with 10 different kinds of seafood. Another popular choice is Mikawa Shrimp Tempura made with large deep-fried prawns and fresh fish. The relaxed pure Japanese interior is rich with the scent of wood.

    About two minutes walk from Nakamura Koen Station is this eel and formal dining restaurant. The restaurant is proud to use fresh eels purchased alive from eel farms across the country. Its specialty is the Kyosui eel, a premium brand of eel raised carefully over time. The deliciously cooked eel is meaty with a crispy skin in the Kansai style. Guests can try the eel in their preferred dish such as Nagoya specialty, eel hitsumabushi, eel kamameshi (served in a small pot), or eel served on a bowl of rice. As well as seating at tables, private rooms with sunken kotatsu seating and tatami mats are also available. The restaurant will also happily accommodate larger groups for parties.

    看 table log 3.5分而來,附近沒什麼人,餐廳很多都有附設停車場,感覺是個不熱鬧的地方,但這家餐廳中午停車場全滿,裡面人聲鼎沸,想必在當地是蠻受歡迎的,共水的鰻魚是他的主打食材,從外面就一直在廣告,等餐的時間有點久,鰻魚跟釜飯都需要比較長的料理時間。

Aichi Main Areas

around-area-map

Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
