Anago from Kassui-ken, Himeji
Saltwater eel is apparently a local specialty in Himeji. So we grabbed a couple anago lunches today at this shop in Himeji Koko-en (0792-89-4131). It was definitely leaner (and hence less tasty) than its freshwater counterpart, unagi, but I suppose that it still did the job on its own. I'll probably opt for the freshwater version if confronted with the choice though.
