Eel alert #2

KabayakiThis is the second and (I believe) last eel alert for this year. Please see Eel Alert #1 for details.

According to the Japanese calendar, Tuesday, August 5, 2008 is the second Doyo No Ushi No Hi for this year.

When I visited Don Quijote, they were amply supplied with frozen 9.5 ounce imported eels. So no excuses. You’ll also need a little bottle of unagi no tare (eel sauce) if you’re out.

Or, of course, you could grab your eels at any fine Japanese eatery in town. Since only a few of us know about Doyo No Ushi No Hi, there won’t be a mad rush for reservations, as there is in Japan.
