As soon as you place an order, they prepare the eel that they keep in freshwater tanks and put it on the grill right away. The eel's tail still squirming over the flame is quite the sight! Afterwards, it takes about 20 minutes for it to cook. While you wait for the food to cook, try some of their greenish alcohol made from the eel's gall bladder. The staff, most of who have been here for more than a decade, grills the eel for you until it turns brownish gold. Although their salt-grilled eel is good, their grilled eel marinated in soy sauce is their signature dish.
