A well-known, long-established restaurant founded in 1868. We serve delicious grilled conger eel with rice using a special sauce.
We are a long-established “anago meshi” (grilled conger eel rice bowl) restaurant founded in 1868. With a long history spanning over a century, we have become a famous and integral part of Hiroshima's food culture.
When you enter our old folk house restaurant, it takes you back in history.
We use the highest quality fatty eel in its peak condition which we thoroughly marinade in our special “tare” (Japanese dipping sauce) to soak in as much flavor as possible. We have been making this special tare since our restaurant’s founding which perfectly complements our plump and perfectly cooked conger eel with a mellow richness that is not overly thick yet full of flavor and has a great aroma.
Our rice is delicious even when cooled because we cook our rice in soup stock made from conger eel bones making every grain full of flavor.
Our food will surely be appreciated in a banquet to celebrate special occasions or as a souvenir.
Enjoy it freshly-cooked at our restaurant or let us pack it in a traditional Japanese bento box for you to enjoy later.
We are beloved by both locals and international guests, so much so that it is often said, "If it’s anago meshi, it’s got to be Ueno."
