Chef Kanejiro Kanemoto Is Japan’s Grilled Eel Master — Omakase


Here’s another great video from the Eater Channel on YouTube. Check it out.


Nodaiwa in the Higashi Azabu area of Tokyo is a 200 year old restaurant that has focused on various preparations of unagi through five generations of chefs.

At its helm today is chef and owner Kanejiro Kanemato, a master of kabayaki (butterflied unagi that is dipped in a sweet sauce and then broiled) who is 90 years old and shows no signs of stopping. “Right now I say that I’ll stay in the business until I’m 100,” says Kanemato. “But 10 years later I might reach for another 10 years, and so on.”
