Anago, the Long and the Short of It

12 11 2014

Some sushi restaurants serve anago, the conger eel, long, I believe, mostly for show, as below from a sushi place in a big shopping mall in the northern part of Tokyo I went to this past weekend.

Sitting right in the middle of my lunch special.

My regular sushi joint serves it like below although the portion is actually twice what you see as you do use the whole of the eel.  I was sharing with a friend.  From earlier in the year.


Either way works for me…
