Yesterday, I ate “hitsumabushi”that is a regional dish of Nagoya city.
I will eat hitsumabushi again tonight.
Hitsumabushi is a dish that is made by dusting rice with finely chopped eels.
This dish is famous for enjoying three different tastes by scooping rice and eels into a bowl three times.
You eat it as normal for the first time, eat it with seasonings such as green onions or wasabi for the second time, and eat it with green tea or soup stock for the third time.
It is said that it came to be known as hitsumabushi because it was made by dusting (called “mabusu” in Japanese) rice in a pot (called “hitsu” in Japanese) with eels.
