Very tasty eel spot for what I understand is a very reasonable price. Extremely friendly service. The interior isn't much but it's kind of charming in a shabby way. Would recommend!


save the day
in a lacquer box..


I was impressed by how fluffy the meat was🥺💓
The sauce soaks into the rice just right!

Some women may feel that the portion size is a bit much, but it seems that you can eat less rice.
