Nagoya Station 

[Hitsumabushi (Atsuta Horaiken Jingu Branch)]

Sample the wonders of "hitsumabushi", one of the most popular Nagoya specialties

Tender, aromatic grilled eel, thinly sliced and placed on top of hot rice in a wooden tub. Take the first portion in a bowl and enjoy it as it is, then have the second portion with seasonings, and the third portion with soup stock poured over it. The "hitsumabushi", which can be eaten in three different ways, is an iconic Nagoya specialty. The long-established Atsuta Horaiken founded in 1873, uses a secret sauce that has been continually topped up since the days of the restaurant's foundation and which is full of the rich flavors that have melted into it. The Jingu Branch, which is near Atsuta Jingu Shrine, is visited by droves of people in search of a taste of the restaurant’s unique flavors.
