Hamamatsu Station 

[Shibuki Eel Specialty Restaurant]

Crispy, yet soft. The subtly sweet sauce made to a secret recipe is the key to the taste

Shibuki is a long-established eel restaurant with 60 years of history, situated on the street in front of the Kanzanji Temple. After the eel has been grilled until the skin is golden brown, excess fat is removed through steaming, before the eel is dipped in the secret sauce and then carefully grilled again. This is what makes Shibuki's grilled eel crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The popular "Hitsumabushi" is first eaten as it is; the second serving includes plum, green perilla leaf, sesame, chives etc.; and lastly, a special kelp broth is poured on and it is eaten as a rice soup. The eels used are Japanese, mainly from Lake Hamana.
