The Unagi eating day - doyooz ushino hi
Yesterday was “Doyoo Ushino Hi”, the hottest day of the season according to the traditional Japanese calendar. On this day in Japan, people eat Unagi (eel). The vitamin A content of Unagi is supposed to help people survive rest of the summer season.
At a Japanese supermarket in Singapore, we tried this dish called unagi omu rice: A slice of unagi with some seaweed dressing placed on a serving of omu rice (flavoured rice wrapped in egg omelette).
