It has been some time since I last had unagi at Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant.
I have been craving for unagi and I found out on the Burpple app that a new unagi restaurant has opened in Bugis+.
I can’t wait to try it out. Let’s go!
Una Una is located besides Ramen Champion on level 4 of Bugis+.
There is a glass tank at the entrance of the restaurant where live freshwater eel is kept. The eels are flown in from Japan, which shows the restaurant’s dedication to quality which is commendable.
Someone recommended this Unagi Omelette (3 pieces) [S$9.80] on Burpple so I got a portion. I would never have thought to combine unagi and omelette together, but it actually works. There is way more omelette than unagi in each piece, but you can defiantly taste the unagi.
Hitsumabushi is Nagoya style of cooking freshwater eel. The eel are coated with a special basting tare that is flown in from Japan and grilled over charcoal. The grilled eel is chopped, layered and served with an array of condiments.
This is what I came for, Unagi Hitsumabushi [S$9.80 for Small, S$14.80 for Regular, S$19.80 for Double]. This definitely one of, if not the cheapest hitsumabushi in Singapore. However, you get what you pay for. The rice was slightly undercooked. The underside of the unagi is also undercooked, I had a hard time cutting up the unagi. The unagi is also one of the sweetest I have tasted.
Besides hitsumabushi, you can also enjoy unagi in the form of unaju (unagi bento box), gozen (set meals), unagi sushi rolls, grilled unagi kabayaki sets and unagi maze don.
There are also non-unagi items on the menu to cater to please all Japanese food lovers.
