Unagiya Ichinoji: Miyagawa Honten’s First Unagi Restaurant in Singapore
If you recall, in my previous story of Singapore's love affair with the unagi, I talked about the impending shortage of unagi next year as fishermen reported a 80% decline in the catch rate for baby eels this season. The owners of Uya were just lamenting about the bad timing of the opening of their restaurant earlier this year. The last thing you would expect is for yet another new unagi restaurant to open in Singapore, right?
I've got good news and bad news. The good news is that if you love unagi and have been intimidated by the queues at Man Man, then there is a new place where you can satiate your craving for char-grilled live eels!
Man Man Unagi Restaurant: Live Eels Grilled over Charcoal!
I never used to enjoy unagi (fresh water eels) until I came across one which was live-killed and freshly grilled over charcoal. It was that moment of epiphany when I suddenly realized what the fuss was all about!
