If there’s one thing that I would pick from time to time whenever I’m in a Japanese restaurant, that would be unagi Yanagawa.
It was by fate that I met Chef Tomohiko Omori, a native Kyushu citizen who is proud to promote the locality of his cuisine. Not only that he shared me a story about his favorite dish of all time – ramen and particularly the tonkotsu version coming from this region. He also shows his pride and joy that I found from this dish!
The small town of Yanagawa in Kyushu is represented by the unagi hot pot that I love so much. If you haven’t tried this one, then you should. The eels are in abundant and there’s a whole egg covering it. Perfect for lunch and dinner, unagi Yanagawa is best served hot with rice and soup.
Now imagine yourself digging this awesomeness!
