Unagi – Japanese eel
“Unagi” (Freshwater eel – うなぎ) is one of my favorite Japanese dishes. Before coming to Japan I didn’t really like any kind of eel, but the way it is prepared here and the softness of the species Anguilla japonica changed my mind. It is usually grilled with soy sauce (Kabayaki) and served on a bed of rice (Kabayaki-don).
If you have the opportunity, try it!
