SEIROMUSHI

Distinctive Characteristics of Wakamatsuya SEIROMUSHI

Hot rice, which has been mixed with our secret sauce and carefully steamed, is placed within a bamboo steaming basket and covered in KABAYAKI pieces and shaved omelet garnish, which are then allowed to steam within the basket.

For unseasoned KABAYAKI, the most common way to prepare it in the Kanto region is to first steam the eel and then broil it; however, in Yanagawa the eel is directly broiled over a charcoal fire. This method more resembles that found in the Kansai region.

The unseasoned eel is carefully broiled for around 20 minutes until that distinctive eel odor – somewhere between flesh and skin – disappears.
After the unseasoned eel is finished broiling, it is usually basted twice with sauce and then grilled; however, since no two pieces of eel are the same, each receives exactly the amount of turning and basting that it requires.

KABAYAKI Set

Distinctive Characteristics of Wakamatsuya KABAYAKI

Choice pieces of eel are meticulously grilled over a charcoal fire until plump and without odor; they are then generously basted in a sauce made from a secret recipe passed down for generations; and, finally, they are broiled until perfectly done.

For unseasoned KABAYAKI, the same charcoal fire direct grilling method used with SEIROMUSHI is applied.
The unseasoned eel is carefully broiled for around 20 minutes until that distinctive eel odor – somewhere between flesh and skin – disappears.
After the unseasoned eel is finished broiling, it is usually basted twice with sauce and then grilled; however, since no two pieces of eel are the same, each receives exactly the amount of turning and basting that it requires.

Finally, the eel is laid atop rice coated in sauce and served.
