Time Out says

One thing and one thing only goes on the grill at Kabuto, and while freshwater eel might not appeal to less adventurous eaters, it’s impossible not to be intrigued by what this no-frills street stall has to offer when you see salarymen hunched over the counter with their small blue plates of unagi on skewers. You can order skewers consisting of your chosen eel part, or go straight for theset which will give you a taste of just about every part of eel anatomy, head, bones and all. You can order beer to accompany your snack, or get a glass of nihonshu (Japanese sake) and sweeten it to your liking with the flask of plum syrup on the counter.
