Maruya’s mix of sophisticated dining and simple traditional meals has seen it grow in popularity in recent years. They pride themselves on seven base aspects, or as they put it, “obsessions” that make them unique; the best quality eel available farmed from pristine government-protected waterways; traditional soy sauce that is fermented in giant wooden vats; A-ranked rice; Aichi Prefecture pickles, and green tea from Mie Prefecture. All this adds up to some of the best eel that you can buy, for an extremely affordable price, they also serve hitsumabushi, which is Nagoya’s unique way of serving eel, crumbled on top of rice in a round container.
