I liked here! Very nice. You can taste various kinds of see eal part.
You also can take as to go!


Eel (Unagi) becomes more and more expensive these days, but this restaurant servces unagi quite reasonably. Atmosphere is more like Izaka-ya rather than authentic unagi restaurant, but you can expect decent quality unagi at nice price. Will come back.


Mahoroba's first visit. It is located about 5 minutes walk from Shinbashi Station. This is an irresistible restaurant for eel lovers.
The menu includes not only unaju, but also eel menus such as shirayaki, salt-grilled, soy sauce-grilled, and liver-grilled, as well as side menus such as salads and toriwaza. They have a variety of alcoholic beverages, but their favorite is potato shochu.
As for the eel I received, all of the menu items are simply delicious! First of all, I was waiting for the eel with bone crackers and beer, but first of all, I couldn't stop eating this bone cracker (lol)
While enjoying grilled liver and fillet skewers, grilled soy sauce appeared at just the right time. This is the best match for snacks with alcohol. There is no doubt that it will go well with potato shochu.
Finally, one and a half eel. A little less rice? I thought, but by the time I finished eating, this was just the right amount. The way the eel is grilled, the rice cooked, and the sauce coated is all exquisite!
Even though we ate and drank so much eel, the CP for each person did not exceed 10,000 yen. The BGM has a Showa feel and is very comfortable. It was a blissful moment.
