So I read an article about this place, and how it was like the best thing that happened to eel. Well f that. Not true at all.

Basically I wasted 490PHP of my hard earned money, alam mo yung parang winithdraw ko siya tapos pinunit ko yung pera ng walang dahilan. Seryoso.

I was famished and expecting a good meal because of what I read, and I was not satisfied one bit.

I ordered their lunch set meal, parang Yayoi setting kasi naka tray na siya may soup and salad na kasama. Kung sa Yayoi, masarap lahat ng nakalagay sa tray, dito walang masarap. Haha! Promise.

Yung eel lasang damo. Di ko alam bakit ganun? As in itsura niya eel pero pag kain mo para kang kumuha ng damo sa kalye tapos sinubo mo. Kambing hits. #SheepLife

Actually irrelevant na na idescribe ko yung iba kasi yung eel yung binabayaran mo dun e tapos yun di masarap? Tsaka mag aaksaya pa ko ng effort mag type e inaksaya ko na nga pera ko.

Ngayon lang ulit ako nbadtrip ng ganito about food.

Maganda yung interiors though, at ang bait ng mga servers.

Let me just say it- It's overhyped & overpriced.

When I go to Japan, I always make it to a point I get to have good eel as bf & I love it. So when I read that Unakichi was served by a Jap chef, we headed to Makati as soon as we can. The experience?

My order was the fine Unagi, half size at Php980, it comes with a miso soup. The excellent unagi was around Php 1,500. We also had tempura & my all time fave chawanmushi. We waited a short 10mins before the eel was served and what I got was an average eel. It was said to be sourced locally from an eel exporter to Japan and local did it taste. The sad part is that, some of the skin had burnt parts and half of it was thick & rubbery but the other half was ok. The rice was delicious but lacked sauce. it was pale I tell you.

The tempura was just na-uh128553128553128553. It tasted floury and had terrible batter with tiny shrimp. The chawan that came in last which is a bit annoying was the saving grace though. It was really yummy. Not too salty from the dashi powder too & filled with chicken chunk but the eel on top was cloying for me at that point but could have been good if It have been served first.

The ambience? There was a super, extra "tipsy pig kind" of loud group of boys having a drinking sesh. They were super noisy even the chef was eyeing them. So, maybe not the best experience but worth a try.
