Travelling to Miyajima, one thing that is a MUST EAT:
Anago Meishi (Sharp toothed eel steamed rice)
After Taking the JR train, on the way to catch the Ferry to Miyajima, we stopped by this place that my bro highly recommended :
Uneo Anago Meishi
two main choices: either salted or sauced flavoured
Verdict: 5/5 will return (and we did return on the way back to Osaka)
The texture of the eel is so different from unagi – its bouncier, and tastes almost similar to the Chinese red grouper (hong ban) kind of firmness.
Although both looks the same, but i think we liked the sauce one better
Ueno Anago Meishi
1-5-11 Miyajimaguchi, Hatsukaichi,
Hiroshima Prefecture 739-0411, Japan
Heading towards the direction of the ferry, chanced upon this quaint cafe and had coffee
Verdict: 5/5 return will return (not on a full belly)
The staff was very friendly in engaging in conversation with us. Setting was very much like a localised coffee shop that neighbours just freely came in and had a cuppa 🙂 if you like to look at potteries and cups etc, this is a very nice place that sell pretty artistic unique kind of cups ..
alrighties onward Miyajima!!!
