What is Hitsumabushi

Hitsumabushi is grilled eel served over rice and one of the more popular dishes of Nagoya. The term ‘hitsu’ is the wooden container it’s served in and ‘mabushi refers to the act of mixing the eel in with the rice.

History of Hitsumabushi

Though eel may be instantly associated with Hamana-ko Lake, Shizuoka Prefecture, its top production area is actually Aichi Prefecture. Eel is slit open along the belly and grilled whole without steaming – that’s the Nagoya style of cooking eel. Hitsumabushi is a local eel dish, which is said to have originated at the end of Meiji Era as waitresses dished up each serving of chopped grilled eel on rice from a large wooden tub for keeping cooked rice (o-hitsu) into individual bowls of customers in a tatami-mat room.

Hitsumabushi is eaten in a three-step process. First, 1/3rd of the dish is spooned out onto a plate and is enjoyed as is. Secondly, another 1/3rd is taken and seasoned with condiments such as wasabi, herbs, green onions, and dried seaweed (nori). The last portion is eaten with tea poured over it, often referred to asocha-zuke.’
