The Best Freshwater Eels @ Makoto Japanese Cuisine Desa Sri Hartamas

My family and I love Unagi, which is the Japanese eels that normally served with rice. However, we have not tried freshwater eels until recently at Makoto Japanese Cuisine Desa Sri Hartamas.
Located at the busy district at Desa Sri Hartamas, Makoto Japanese Cuisine is a lovely Japanese restaurant that has cosy interior and 2 VIP rooms. 
What is interesting is that Makoto imported fresh eels that are from Shizuoka, Japan weekly and serve upon order. Their experienced Japanese Unagi Chef will keep the fresh eels in cold temperature to keep it calm, it will be freshly prepared and cooked upon order. Hence, it takes around 25 minutes for them to prepare and serve the eel dishes. Best to call for reservations before going to eliminate the waiting time.
If you want to see how the Japanese Unagi Chef to prepare the live eel at the kitchen, please click on the video below.

It was my first time seeing eel preparation in live, they had the tiny bones which could be cook and eaten too. The eels were normally served in the form of Japan Hitsumabushi.

Japan Hitsumabushi (unagi kabayaki with rice set, small | RM100)
Japan Hitsumabushi is unagi kabayaki with rice set, like unagi don. We like the freshly prepared unagi as the texture is tender and juicy, crispy outside and soft inside. We get to taste the original, most natural taste of fresh water eel in this dish. No wonder it’s popular among the diners at Makoto.

You can eat a last portion of kamamabushi by pouring Sencha tea on rice (chazuke), and also add some pickles to flavor chazuke as you wish. It gives a different sensation while eating with the tea.

Hone Senbei (eel bone cracker | RM 8)
The eel bones removed from the freshwater eels are deep-fried to cracker. It’s very crispy, and taste best with a little bit of saesalt.

Special Sashimi Platter (Chef Choice | RM 138)
Great for sashimi lover like me, the sashimi patter at Makoto is fresh, well cut and truly enjoyable. We don’t mind having more of this.

Warabimochi (traditional Japanese dessert | RM 15)

Warabimochi (warabi-mochi) is a jelly-like confection made from bracken starch and covered or dipped in kinako (sweet toasted soybean flour). We like the sweet and savory desserts a lot. We would strongly recommend to all the diners at.

Good news people, you could enjoy special Executive Bento Set Lunch available on weekdays, from 12pm – 2:30pm at great value.
