In fact, Allie has several experiences of eating eel rice, but he may never come across a delicious eel rice, so he doesn't particularly like eel. but! This time, the eel rice in Mikawa Nakagawaya is really amazing. Not only is the eel as fresh and delicious as the legend, but there are also three authentic Japanese Kansai ways to eat it, which opened our taste buds who like eel ❤️

Hsinchu Sanhe Nakagawa House|Environment

As soon as you enter the restaurant, you are greeted with great enthusiasm, accompanied by the Japanese background music of the restaurant, and the whole dining atmosphere is very happy and joyful. The restaurant is divided into two floors. We only opened the first floor because we just opened at noon. The waiter asked us if we wanted hot tea or iced tea, and we immediately answered the hot tea when it was frozen by the weather outside!

Three Eels

The service staff enthusiastically shared with us the unique way of eating eel rice, which was so richThree ways to eat, One meal and three meals? First cut the eel rice into four equal portions with a tablespoon, and attach an empty bowl next to us. First eat it directly and put it in a small bowl to taste the original flavor of the eel. The eel's skin is grilled and crispy, and the inside is soft and plump. The original flavor is delicious to explosion, and I am looking forward to how I can eat it next time!

▲One Eel: Taste its original flavor

The second meal is accompanied by seasonings.Washami and white onions, To mix evenly, a concept of bibimbap! Because of the addition of mustard, it tastes a bit spicy, but it is still acceptable. Allie usually doesn't eat spicy food, but he thinks the second food is very delicious. The two ingredients make the eel taste more layered. The greasy taste of the eel sauce also creates a new flavor, which is quite a surprise.

As for why it is divided into four parts? Because the fourth portion can be eaten whatever you want, just eat it according to your favorite taste! After eating, I really like the eel rice. The secret sauce of the eel is very sweet, and you can't taste the fishy smell of the eel at all. Change your mind and fall in love with eating eel?
