    Mie Pref. Matsusakashi Okawachichou 612-1
    You can pick out this yakiniku BBQ restaurant on Route 166 in Matsusaka City, Mie Prefecture by its sign with the Japanese characters for grilled meat, chicken, and vegetables. They offer soft and juicy Matsusaka raised chicken marinated in their secret recipe miso sauce, chicken liver, and more that you eat right off the grill. Their stew packed with Chinese cabbage and chicken and their savory chicken and vegetable soup with white miso also comes recommended. They also have white rice, regular miso soup, and palate-cleansing side dishes like cabbage and kimchi. They close as soon as they sell out, and depending on the menu of the day, this sometimes happens in the morning.

    早い美味い安いの見本みたいな店です。 日曜日の午前11時半に入店したら既にテーブルはいっぱいでしたが、5分程度の待ち時間で座れました。 注文したら3分も待たずに肉が出てきてビックリ。すべての肉メニューを頼みましたが、どれも美味しかった。松阪のソウルフードを名乗る資格十分です。

    This shop is a very old shop in the shopping street. It has lots of customers so you might have to queue to get a space. Price is really reasonable to get two pieces of akafuku mochi which is mochi...

    Booked on their web site and got a confirmation within 1 hour. It is convenient for foreigners. Their staff speak little English. Yet the quality of steaks does the talking. Sukiyaki is also...

    This seafood restaurant with a focus on oysters is in Uramuracho, Toba City, Mie Prefecture. They offer all-you-can-eat oysters baked in their own steel drum from November to March. Grown in a short one-year period, the rich environment means they taste great with little astringency. In other seasons they offer fare such as rock oyster and assorted fried seafood set meals, seafood rice bowls and wild conger eel rice bowls, rice with Uramura caught octopus, and more.

    目当てのお店が混んでいたので、急遽こちらのお店に。 焼き牡蠣食べ放題ではなく単品で色々食べたいと思い入ったのですが…なんだか食べ放題以外のお客は隅の席で食べてって感じで。 女将さん?の態度も横柄で気分悪かったですね。 牡蠣フライは作り置きで、牡蠣も小さく固くなってしまっていて美味しくなかったです。 もう行くことは無いですね。

They put a lot of work in their sashimi, and their set meals with them are also popular. They also offer set menus like their Akoya Gozen where you can eat both their deep-fried and sashimi dishes.

    Very delicious food. One of my best meals in this trip. Had a big lobster, row (sashimi) and it was so good. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

    Mie Pref. Shimashi Agochougata 4032
    This unagi eel restaurant with a lantern marked with the characters for charcoal grilled is located in the Ugata, Ago-cho area of Shima City, Mie Prefecture. Every morning, they slowly grill a fresh Japanese eel cut open that day over high-grade charcoal to seal in the savoriness, and the surface becomes crisp while the inside is soft and fluffy. The chemistry between it and the slightly sweet secret sauce is amazing. The chef's recommendation is the unagi-don joju (high class bowl of rice topped with grilled eel). This dish consists of four pieces of plump and savory eel that are large enough together to completely cover the rice it is placed on. With a spacious Japanese style tatami room, the restaurant is recommended for eating with families.

    What a nice quality of taste for budget. I paid 2500yen for my Unagi rice though I thought average were double price. Incredible tasty...

    Mie Pref. Iseshi Nishitoyohamachou 342-1
    This long-established Japanese confectionery shop sells one of Ise's specialties, henba mochi (rice cake filled with bean paste and lightly grilled on both side). It has a dine-in space, and you can enjoy traditional Japanese sweets such as the famous henba mochi with tea. The store also has a parking lot where large buses can park and bathrooms, making it the perfect place to rest from a drive. By the way, there used to be a henba-jo to send back horses when worshippers crossed the Miyagawa River to head towards Ise Jingu Shine in the Edo period (1603-1868). It is said the henba mochi came from the sweets given there.

    毎年1月は恒例の伊勢参り。初めてへんば餅を買ったのはおはらい町でした。外宮の参道にも店があって、近鉄特急に乗るまでに、時間が30分ほどあったので、今回はここで買いました。上新粉で出来た餡餅で、日持ちが2日ほどだけど、時間が経ってるせいか、少し硬くなってましたね。餡はあっさりしたこし餡で美味しいですが、焼かずに食べたので、焼いたほうがもっと美味しかったかもしれません。

    Shintamatei is a long-standing restaurant, founded in 1890, that specializes in charcoal-broiled eel. It is located about an 11-minute walk from Tsu-Shinmachi Station on the Kintetsu Nagoya Line. The eel is basted with a traditional sauce made of boiled soy sauce, mirin, and rock sugar that is allowed to sit for a wake before being used. Customers can enjoy broiled eel that is crispy on the outside and soft and light on the inside. The live eels are kept in natural well water, which reduces any stress that might have a negative influence on their flavor. The rice is locally sourced, and the restaurant takes great care to ensure that customers can feel that their food is safe and of high quality. Customers can become members of the Unachan program, which entitles them to occasional e-mail announcements from Shintamatei and hidden menu items that are available to members only.

    外はカリッとよく焼けていて香ばしいです。 ふわふわより、よく焼いてたっぷりのタレがかかっている鰻が好きなので、ここはお気に入りです。 一階た二階があり、席数はたくさんありますが、すぐに満席になるので、予約してからがおすすめです。

    Yamaguchiya is a well-known udon restaurant offering the famous soft and super thick Ise Udon noodles in a rich broth. It is a long-established udon shop that continues to make the much loved udon, unchanged since it was founded in the early Showa period. The flour used for making these superb homemade noodles comes from the ayahikari wheat from Mie Prefecture. Every morning the flour is kneaded to create enough noodles for the day and then slowly boiled for an hour until they are done. The secret sauce is made with Niboshi (dried sardines), dried mackerel or dried bonito shavings, tamari soy sauce, and brown sugar to create a delicately sweet sauce that goes perfectly with the noodles. Their most popular bowl of noodles is the “gocha ise udon” with plenty of ingredients. The nearest station is Iseshi Station.

    Yamaguchiya is my favorite Ise udon restaurant. Ive been there 5 times. It is casual atmosphere and quite old building.People work there are very friendly. If you go to Ise, you should eat Ise Udon...
