Unagi Marutomi


Restaurants & Cafés


Located about a five-minute walk from Aomono-yokocho Station, the interior of Marutomi is divided into two halves: the kitchen, and a row of counter seats. The dish to try here is the unadon, which comes in two sizes – regular (¥1,800) and double (¥3,350). Plus, for an extra ¥50 you can also opt for extra rice with either size. Many customers drop by for takeout; however, since the shop is continuously grilling eels throughout the day it takes almost no time to be served should you choose to eat in. The eels here are fat and soft, and come grilled in a thick, particularly sweet sauce – and the rice is just the right consistency. If you’re looking for eel better than this, at a price and service time that’s comparable to here then you’ll be hard pushed to find it. Judging by the shop’s appearance alone, you might think the place appears a bit rough at first; don’t let this put you off – the staff here are warm, friendly and courteous.
