Customers are able to enjoy "dream eel" in a high class and relaxing space

Kyosui eel is known as the Maboroshi eel ("dream eel") of Shizuoka Yaizu. It is characterized by its lack of smell, good quality fat and its unique taste when it melts in mouth. This special rare brand of eel is only available in certain restaurants and Ebisu Unagi Matsukawa is popular for its 100% Kyosui eel menu.

Ebisu Unagi Matsukawa was founded in 1971 (Showa 46), it was relocated twice and reopened in a quiet residential area in Ebisu, Tokyo. Formerly, it was a small eel restaurant by the street which focused on a la carte menu, but now, it mainly offers high-class, luxurious courses in a relaxing setting where you can forget about the hustle and bustle city life. The owner is the second generation, Koji Ando. From his childhood, he grew up watching and learning from his father who ran the eel restaurant. After training for 7 to 8 years at an eel store in Tokyo, he joined Ebisu Unagi Matsukawa in 1989 at the age of 25. Since then, 30 years have passed and he continues to maintain the restaurant's high class reputation. The Kyosui eel is delivered directly from the pond to the wholesaler, and is stored in a circulating fish tank in the restaurant before serving. The charcoal used to grill the eel is Tosa high-grade charcoal, which has strong heating power and lasts for a long time. In addition, they also focus on the compatibility of rice with eel, with a blend of 3 different kinds, Akitakomachi, Koshihikari and Sasanishiki rice. The main dish for lunch is broiled eel and for dinner the main course is the recommended course. The recommended course consists of seasonal appetizers, eel dumplings, eel and cucumber salad, steamed savory custard, tempura, as well as broiled eel and other eel dishes. There are 2 eels per serving. There are also 7 kinds of sake such as Kuheiji, Kudzuryu, Kubota Senju and Masumi etc., along with 3 types of red and white wine from Italy and France, which were purchased and suggested from the sommeliers.

There are 8 seats with a counter made from a 300 year old cypress board, and 2 complete private rooms for 4 people. The private rooms can be joined together by removing the central partition. Customers can also enjoy their meals with the view of a Japanese garden and the colored leaves in autumn. Customers can also use Wajimanuri (lacquer ware boxes) to enjoy the high-class setting and use the establishments for entertainment, dates, anniversaries and family meals, etc. Why not enjoy the "dream eel" in a relaxing restaurant?

    素晴らしいお料理でした! いろいろ鰻店は伺いましたが、 お料理のクオリティはとても高く、 料理をする者からすると 一切の誤魔化しない丁寧な内容でした! 初めての鰻のしんじょうでしたが、 なかに半熟の鶉の卵が射込まれていたり、 鰻の天麩羅は歯応えの為に長芋を忍ばせてあったり、お吸物は勿論インスタントの肝吸いではなくて 血合い抜きの上質な本枯鰹節からとったお出汁でした。 肝焼きもそれだけではなくて、心臓やヒレもあり 食べていて楽しかったです。 なんと言っても鰻の蒸しと焼き加減が素晴らしかったです。 ビチャビチャ感はゼロ、身はフワフワで皮は香ばしく焼かれていました。 是非是非またお伺いします
