This is a hidden eel restaurant just off Platinum Street.
Order domestic eel ju (special) 4100 yen
Edo style, steamed and then baked.
It was served in about 25 minutes.

Rice was spread out in a shallow layer in a large box, and there was one eel.
Elegant and moist eel.
I felt the breeze of Platinum Street. wonderful.


Kyosui eel exhaustion course. Excited from the appetizer. The shirayaki is delicious, and the Kanto-style eel is soft. The sauce is not too thick so you can enjoy the eel flavor. I want to eat the course again!


I had it for lunch. The eel was extremely soft and delicious.
Is the sauce thin? Although the inherent sweetness of the sauce is weak, the eel itself has a strong flavor, which is good! The grilled eyes were also very flavorful.
I can't say it's cool inside because of the heat near the counter, but I think it's nice to eat while sweating a little.

This time I had normal eel, but next time I would like to try the branded eel.
