Unagi Seiro Mushi (Steamed Eel)
When it comes to eel cuisine, “unaju” (grilled eel with rice) and grilled eel rice bowls are quite common, but in Yanagawa City, the first dish that comes to mind is “unagi seiro mushi”, or steamed eel. Steamed eel is one of Yanagawa’s famous local dishes. It is so famous in Fukuoka that people associate eel with Yanagawa!
Steamed eel is made by placing grilled eel and fried, thin-sliced egg over rice covered in sauce, seasoning it, and steaming it in a bamboo steamer. The dish is said to be steamed so that diners can enjoy it piping hot to the last bite, and also so that the eel’s flavorful taste is better soaked into the rice.
In Yanagawa City, there are many long-established eel restaurants, and each one has preserved its own traditional sauce and reputation. Most restaurants serve their seiro mushi in a vermilion steamer with the restaurant’s name written on the side.
