Did I mention that I LOVE UNAGI?
And I love that Japan has an abundance of unagi shops specialising in one thing: eel.
Just a few steps east of the Minamiza kabuki theater, Matsuno is a popular and reliable family-run restaurant to satisfy the ultimate unagi craving.
Minamiza-higashi 4-ken-me, Shijo-dori, Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto
All 4 of us ordered the same thing: an exquisite lacquered box of warm rice topped with two beautifully grilled slices of fatty unagi sandwiching a layer of fluffy soft tamago.
