    What sets Unakichi apart is its commitment to delivering fresh and high-quality eel dishes, reminiscent of those found in Japan. The secret lies in their use of fresh eel directly sourced from farms in Japan, ensuring authentic flavors that transport diners to the bustling streets of Japan.

    What’s more, they incorporate a special unagi sauce recipe from a 100-year-old unagi restaurant in Tsukiji, giving diners the best-tasting unagi dishes in the metro. Paired with Japanese Koshihikari rice, their unagi dishes achieve an ensemble of fresh and perfectly seasoned flavors, capturing the delicate flavors of Japanese cuisine.

    All these efforts are elevated by the expertise of the shop owner, Mr. Terashima, who has garnered his knowledge from a high-class tempura specialty store in Ginza. Behind the scenes, three skilled Japanese chefs meticulously craft each dish, ensuring that the essence of Japanese culinary artistry is preserved.

    The main menu boasts an array of eel delights, including the signature eel bowls, Unajyu Jyo (Php 980), and Unajyu Gokujyo (Php 1,580), which feature grilled fine eel in unagi sauce with rice.

    Beyond the unagi menu, Unakichi also offers a selection of traditional Japanese dishes, from heartwarming hotpot options like shabu-shabu, sukiyaki, and yosenabe, to the delightful chicken mizutaki.
