Comments from SHACHIme
In addition, I am excited to also recommend Atsuta Houraiken for its wonderful atmosphere.
Its Japanese-style façade, both exterior and a stylish interior, contributes to a most pleasurable dining experience!
Hitsumabushi - ¥3,990 (including tax)
Atsuta Houraiken's famous "Hitsumabushi"
Hitsumabushi is made by artisans who have perfected the art of handling high-quality eels.
They have mastered the style of grilling this type of eel over binchotan charcoal.
The flavourful sauce with a 140-year history completes the lovely meal.
Today, the immense popularity of Atsuta Houraiken is testament to the legacy of its exceptional Hitsumabushi, unrivalled and inimatable.
The charm of Atsuta Houraiken
The secret sauce that has been preserved for 140 years
The secret sauce
The secret recipe has been passed down from generation to generation, since the establishment of the company.
It is impossible to imitate this legendary sauce with its long historical background.
The skill of grilling high-quality eel to perfection
This skill of handling an eel, of grilling it to its perfection is key to the chef who would have mastered the craft of creating the ideal Hitsumabushi.
In the absence of a well-trained chef, the ideal Hitsumabushi will be elusive, regardless of its sauce or quality of the eel.
At Atsuta Houraiken, only the best eels are served of course, each individually grilled to its supreme perfection.
A bowl of Hitsumabushi is served up flawlessly, even to the most notable critics!
A calming and cosy Japanese atmosphere
Please take a closer look at this restaurant.
I am so thrilled to be able to enjoy my very own exclusive Hiitsu-Mabushi in such a beautiful space.
