Unagi Staying Power
17 July – 6 August 2017
Unagi, or fresh water eel, is consumed throughout the year but it is usually eaten during the hottest part of Japan’s summer – between mid-July to early August – to provide strength and stamina for the rest of the year. The unagi is popular for its unique flavor and contrasting texture – crunchy and sweet on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. This delectable contrast makes it a mouthwatering perfect choice.
