Horaiken, Atsuta, Nagoya(熱田 蓬莱軒 名古屋), Japan


There are a lot of special foods or dishes in Nagoya. Those are very different from the taste of Tokyo area or Western part of Japan. All food has strong taste in Nagoya.

 
Hitsumabushi (ひつまぶし) is one of the most luxury and famous food in Nagoya. The eels are dip and braised with sweet soy source based source. The chef braised the eels with crispy outside and soft inside of that meat. The eels are decorated on the rice and sweet soy source based source are topped on the eels and rice. The sweet and soy source taste are dripped into the rice. Braised soy source smell is one of the best smell for Japanese to remind the delicious white rice.




How to eat the Hitsumabushi

1. Cut and divide the eels on rice in the bowl into four parts with a rice scoop.

2. Serve one part of Hitsumabushi in a rice bowl

3. 1st, taste the plain style

4. 2nd, taste with condiments, like Wasabi, Nori (seaweed) or semami

5. 3rd, taste with Japanese Dashi soup; pour the Dashi soup stock into Hitsumabushi served in your rive bowl

6. 4th, taste with the style as you like it

 
 
 
I preferred the taste only with Wasabi. The flavour of Wasabi has nicely matched into the Hitsumabushi. The flesh and cool flavour of real Wasabi is lovely. Once the dry flavour and taste of Wasabi was come through nose from mouth, it was also tasted as dry, cool, tangy (I do not like this word for wasabi) and refresh on your tongue.
