Kadoya (かど屋)| Eel Restaurant | Susukino in Sapporo

Yesterday was Doyo-no-Ushinohi. Doyo means midsummer and Ushinohi means the day of the ox, which is named after one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac.
Japanese have a custom of eating eel on the day to get stamina and survive the hottest season. Restaurants specializing in eel dishes enjoy good sales.

I went to "Kadoya", one of the famous eel restaurants in Sapporo. The location is very good, only 1 min from the Subway Susukino Station!

Yesterday was the special day and they sold special eel lunch boxes in front of the restaurant. Wow! Wow! Wow!

The restaurant has three kinds of seat; table seats,

horigotatu seats; low, covered tables placed over a hole in the floor of a Japanese-style room,

and seats at the bar.

You can choose several kinds of set menus depending on the eel's amount or side dishes.

I ordered "Unajyu"; charcoal grilled eel on rice in a lacquered box. 

They use a whole body of eel. Looks delicious!!!!

It's very tender!!!!

I like the soy sauce-flavored special sauce!!

Do you want to have a bite???

This is kimosui; an eel-liver soup, which is a must when we, Japanese, eat charcoal grilled eel.

We really enjoyed the special lunch!
