hamo (pike eel?) - summer in japan!

mrock | Jun 15, 2006 10:57 AM

it's almost summer, and in the hot weather, nothing tastes as delicious as cold hamo with plum sauce. i just looked this up and apparently it translates to "pike eel" in english. i'm from the kansai area (outside of osaka) and i love love love getting this dish whenever i am in japan in the summer.

i was wondering if anyone has come across a japanese restaurant here in the city serving this? and about how much are these dishes going for here?
