Increase Your Stamina with Eel at Unatetsu.
Unatetsu was established in 1957. It was originally located under the girder of a railway in Shibuya. The aim of the founder was to offer eel (which is considered luxury food) at reasonable prices, and the idea hasn’t changed since then. That’s why this place has been loved by salarymen who get an allowance from their wives.
The course B includes 8 eel skewers, their full line-up of grilled eel skewers (1790 yen). Today ‘Kimo’ (liver) and ‘Hire’ (fin) are sold out, so another kinds ‘Tanzaku’ and ‘Kushimaki’ are added instead. (1. ‘Tanzaku’, a skewer of small broiled eel, 2. ‘Kushimaki’, a grilled thin eel wrapped around the skewers. 3. ‘Kabuto’, steamed eel head.)
‘Kurikara’, grilled eel meat called ‘Hara-mi’ with wasabi soy sauce (260 yen).
‘Barami’, grilled eel meat called ‘Abara-mi’ with salt (220 yen). The set menu called ‘A set’ consists of the ‘Barami’ with vegetable skewers including gingko nuts, shiitake mushrooms, green peppers, and ‘wakegi’ scallion. (Usually 130 yen for each.) They are so reasonable!
Eel and spinach salad with their original non-oil dressing (400 yen). We need to eat vegetables, too.
At the checking counter is a huge talisman mask!
Thank you! I’ve regained energy now!
Let’s Enjoy Beer from All over the World at Cataratas.
Cataratas is a beer bar that offers various beers from all over the world. The owner opened this bar after finishing his ‘beer journey’ throughout the world. Though my buddy can’t drink beer, I persuade him to come with me. The bar is decorated with beer bottles, coasters, posters, and stickers. This is absolutely a beer heaven!
For my buddy, I ask the staff if they have something that has citrus-flavor and is non-bitter. Then he recommends a Belgian beer called TIMMERMANS, which is not on the menu. This has peach flavor, and tastes a little sour. It’s tasty beyond description! This light beer is recommended for anyone who is not a huge fan of beer. The profound flavor of Belgian beer is amazing!
This is another Belgian beer, Delirium Tremens (meaning alcoholic in Latin). The Shinjuku Southern Terrace has a café called ‘Little Delirium Café’, and the name comes from this beer. Unlike the cute elephants printed on the beer glass, this beer seems dangerous, haha!
I fully enjoy the world’s best beers with dried fruit. I’m sure I’ve restored my energy for tomorrow!
