Unagiya Hirokawa is a unagi-specialty restaurant located in Arashiyama, steps away from the famed Tenryu-ji Temple. There is a perpetual line outside this one-Michelin starred restaurant – we arrived just after 11:30am to find ourselves behind a long queue, and eventually waited 1.5 hours before we got seated. Was it worth the wait? Yes, but I think next time I will book in advance by paying a 1,000 yen reservation fee…

中午,到うなぎ屋廣川吃鳗魚飯。才剛過11:30,門口卻已大排長龍,最後我們等了一個半小時才得以入內。值得嗎?太值得了(反正也熱到無法在外走動)。廣川人氣居高不下的原因,除了它有米其林一星以及食べログ關西區鳗魚飯第一名的評價之外,位于天龍寺旁的地點非常方便,很多遊客都會慕名而來。其實後來發現只要支付1000日元的預約費就可以事先訂位,大家可以參考一下。

Here’s the Unagyu Set (3,900 yen), composed of the unagi rice plus a few side dishes. Hirokawa uses eels farmed in Japan, which are priced for their superior texture and flavor, and grills them with a secrete recipe sauce passed down from over 170 years ago. The eel is delicate, fatty just to the right extent, in combination with the sweet and savory sauce and  perfectly cooked rice…just wow.

總而言之,我們等了一個半小時後坐了下來,二話不說點了うな重定食(3,900日幣)。先來說說鳗魚飯本身。廣川采用的是日本國産養殖鳗魚,相較台灣或著菲律賓産的鳗魚價格較高,而且搭配的醬料配方據說已經有170年的曆史。細嫩肥美的鳗魚、甘甜不膩的醬汁、搭配粒粒分明的米飯,完美融合的實在太、好、吃、了。雖然我平時非常討厭等位,不過一口鳗魚飯下去後,立刻覺得剛才的等待都是值得的。

Included in the set are uzaku (grilled eel strips with pickled cucumber), soup (miso or clear), uo no arai (sashimi), and pickles. A la carte is also available, as are bigger sets (the most expensive being 9,400 yen).

套餐裏面除了鰻魚飯,還有還有うざく(鰻魚醋物)、吸物(湯)、鯉の洗い(冰鎮川燙鯉魚),以及漬菜。另外也可以單點,或著選擇更大份的鳗魚飯套餐(最高9,600日幣)。稍微解釋下:うざく是將蒲燒鳗魚切細,再加入黃瓜片和醋的關西地方料理,非常爽口。

Uo no arai.

“鯉の洗い” 看似生魚片,其實是將生魚去皮去骨後片薄,涮熱水,再放入冰水裏 “洗” 過,肉質緊致彈牙。

Pickles.

清爽的漬菜,搭配口味偏重的蒲燒鳗魚,剛剛好。沒有入鏡的味增湯(還有朋友選擇的清湯)也都非常美味,喝得出是下過功夫的湯。

If you come to Arashiyama, do not miss the opportunity to taste this delicacy – and remember to either reserve in advance, or come VERY early to avoid the wait.

據說廣川雖然身處於京都,但鰻魚採關東做法,不但從背部剖開,也多了 “蒸” 這道手續,比關西風的炭火直烤比起來更滑腴,是好吃的無話可說的鳗魚飯。有機會來嵐山,一定要嚐嚐(不過別忘了事先訂位,或著早點抵達避開人潮)。
