Hitsumabushi is a specialty dish from Nagoya, consisting of steamed Japanese rice, barbecue grilled thick, chewy eel fillet, a beautifully thick, sticky, sweet/savoury sauce, and assorted condiments and garnishes. One of the most unique qualities this dish has to offer lies in how it is eaten. The dish must be divided into quarters, with the first quarter eaten as it is, the second with assorted seasonings, and the third served with plenty of dashi stock (almost like a soup). The fourth quarter can be enjoyed in rice porridge with reheating the remaining dashi with the burned rice at the bottom of the pot.
