For the "Eel Nigiri," the chef use the tasty eel with fat from Miyagi. Because he boils it after grilling it perfectly, it comes out fluffy and tender. He makes his own sauce, which is added to the original sauce created when the restaurant opened. It is slightly sweet and goes well with eel. Liver of monkfish, which is local from Otaru, is soaked in salt water for half a day. Following that, I carefully remove the blood and other excess parts, and then steam it. Please enjoy it dipped in homemade ponzu sauce with seaweed, ginger, grated radish with chili, or kabosu (citrus fruit).

Although the Genghis Khan (grilled mutton) served in the all-you-can-eat-and-drink course is delicious, they also have an array of superb single dishes.
