The most popular menu is “Unagi-donburi (eel bowl)”. The steamed and broiled eels are seasoned with original sauce using soy sauce cover the bowl of rice, and eel liver soup comes together as a set. The large eels are soft and plump, and the sauce is of light taste and not too sweet, so you will not feel it a heavy meal.

Another recommendation is “Tai Chazuke (sea bream rice porridge)”. Sea bream dressed with original thick sesame sauce, rice in a rice tub and a pot of hot roasted green tea (houji-cha) are delivered, and you can ask for another helping of rice. You scoop the rice into the bowl, put sea bream, toasted laver, Japanese horseradish on top, and pour the roasted green tea. The fresh sea bream matches with the sesame sauce, and the tea will make the taste mild. You can first eat the sea bream with rice without adding tea, although you may feel it a little salty.

There are many other set meals and side dishes, but “Unagi-donburi” and “Tai Chazuke” are the popular menus which you can order both lunch and dinner time.
