Best Eel / Unagi in GTA
Alright I'm so fairly addicted to this video right now..
Must acquire. Whose got the goods.
Oh man, you did not just post a Ryugin video and ask where to get it in TO. I might have to go all Charles Yu and scold you for being so foolish.
Also, I am now starving. Geez.
The best Anago ( sea eel ) and Unagi ( fresh water eel ) I have tasted outside of Japan was at Sushi Yasuda in NYC. Yasuda San actually told us ( me and fellow chowhounder Fourseason ) he bought live ones from both China town and other fish markets and make the products himself. Still, similar to NPIG's experience, IMHO, they were nothing near the Michelin 3* Ryugin in Tokyo or their 2* offshoot in Hong Kong!!
Best eel I had in Toronto was at Sushi Kaji where he too made the product using live ones from scratch ( see photo ). It was OK!
But then, its hard for one NOT to compare any Japanese food outside of Japan with the real Mc-Coy??!!
You are torturing us! Looks so delicious. No chance finding that level of excellence in Toronto.
If you are up for a different experience, Fisherman Clubhouse (Chinese) is known for their braised eel in black bean sauce.
