Atsuta Houraiken Main Store
This shop originated ‟Hitsu-mabushi”, Nagoya's famous eel dish which can be enjoyed in three different ways.
Founded in 1873 in front of Atsuta Jingu Shrine, this restaurant is the birthplace of "Hitsumabushi", Nagoya's famous eel dish. Hitsumabushi, which is a registered trademark of Atsuta Horaiiken, is a dish of broiled eel chopped into small pieces and served on a bed of rice in a container called an "o-hitsu".
The fresh eel is grilled over binchotan charcoal to make the skin crispy and the meat fluffy. The secret sauce that has been handed down from generation to generation is also the secret to its deliciousness.
The mainstream of "Hitsumabushi" is to enjoy it in three ways. The first is to enjoy the savoury eel with rice, the second is to serve it with condiments such as spring onions and wasabi and the third is to add dashi-tsuyu(dashi broth). You can enjoy the deliciousness of eel all the way to the end by gradually changing the taste.
There is also "Jingu store" near the main store as well as “Matsuzakaya Nagoya store”which is close to Sakae, Nagoya's central business district.
