“Eel Specialist”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Dined in Hitsumabushi in LaChic 7/F and Fukuoka, the quality was consistently good.
High quality eel would always be sourced around Japan. Charcoal grilling made the eel skin crispy while the meat was juicy and tender.
To uphold the spirit of Nagoya in treasuring food and discouraged wastage, the signature ‘Hitsumabushi Rice’ bowl was designed to be eaten in 3 steps
Octopus sashimi as side-dish was fresh and crunchy.

Highly recommeneded if you enjoy grilled unagi.

“Hitsumabushi - best eel food”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

I don't like eel food very much, but the first time I ate Hitsumabushi (grilled eel with rice) at Nagoya, I loved it.
Eels are grilled perfectly and very delicious.
I loved the way to enjoy it like a story.
I really recommend visitors should try it when come to Nagoya.

Until now I still miss its delicious smell :)
I will come back here when I next visit Nagoya.

“Very good eel”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

This is more of an upscale restaurant. Eels are barbequed to perfection and very delicious. There is also a very nice view esp from the windows seating. Worth the try when one is around nagoya.

“Best Eel I have ever eaten”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

The eel here is fantastic. Nice, firm and fresh, not soft and squishy. I ordered the extra large portion with of eel with rice and along with the Eel salad. Wife and I loved it and will definitely bring our kids when they next visit Nagoya with us.
