Eel Maehara Reviews

All the eel dishes were delicious in a clean restaurant.
I received the ``Ainoseju'', which is both shirayaki and kabayaki.
Kabayaki had a light sauce, which I liked.
Shirayaki was also refreshing and delicious with green onions on top.
The drinks were delicious and I was very satisfied.
It's a good place for a date as it has a nice atmosphere.


Visited for lunch.
It was an eel restaurant in Kyoto, and I thought it was a Kansai-style eel, but it was a Kanto-style grill.
I dipped it in the sauce four times over charcoal and grilled it, but the sweetness and soy sauce flavor were refreshing.
There is an eel sauce on the table, and I am somewhat convinced.

I ordered a crane and received additional liver soup.
It was just the right amount for me as a light eater, but men may feel the amount of rice is a little less.
