Search for and visit a nearby eel restaurant. An eel restaurant along Kotakibashi Street. Next to it is a yakitori restaurant and a large ramen shop.

A friendly greeting from the proprietress at the same time as entering the store.
Expectations are high for the Showa-chic atmosphere inside the store.
I asked
・grilled liver
・Fish grilled
Grilled fins have a very soft taste. After that, the table top sauce was good.
Waiting for the eel while drinking beer while snacking.
The eel, which is the key, was plump and delicious, and it seems to be slightly thick, but it is well-baked, and the eel that can be cut with chopsticks, and the sauce is slightly sweet, and the rice goes well.
While adding the sauce, I instinctively grabbed the bowl and shoveled in the rice.

I was very satisfied, but the amount of Kasaneju I ordered was large, so next time it would be better to simply enjoy a lot of eel at a special price.

Next time, I would like to drink sake with Kabayaki and Shirayaki.
Revisit Ali.


I stopped by when I was nearby.
It was delicious. I like piping hot eel, so I was a little disappointed.
The eel was 4200 yen.
I'll stop by again.


We recommend the highest jumbo size. A locally famous old-fashioned eel restaurant with many young customers. The tableware also has a luxurious feel.


Translated from Japanese:

Anyway, the eel is fluffy, fragrant and very delicious. And even if you order the most expensive eel of this quality, it will only cost you 5,600 yen! In a good sense, the price and taste don't go hand in hand. If you want to eat eel, go to the beach...


Translated from Japanese:

I went there for the first time in a long time. A delicious eel restaurant that I can easily go to because it's close to my house. It is a 5 minute walk from Okubo Station. It's a very nice store with a nice atmosphere and the staff. It was a pity that there was no grilled liver on this day. ...


Translated from Japanese:

An eel restaurant that also offers delivery services. Beyond the delicious food, the atmosphere inside the restaurant and the hostess and employees provide pleasant customer service. Kimoyaki is also delicious. But it seems like there are more small bones than other eel restaurants, so it's just my imagination...
