Eiji's anago ...

"i can't believe I typed that whole name"
Well, simply click through.
Fortunately, the techs overseeing this board don't know how to hash.
My original moniker was TheDescendedYetNotFullyArticulatedLefticleOfAramis ... now that's typing.

And no.
No proper nouns.

BTW, I'd hit the streets w/ "a" Jonkyo any day of the fuck'n week.

Eiji's anago ...

Rather far from oblique for it's intended audience.
All too often threads on this cuisine wither into little more than acri/sancti-monious hand waving ...
behold tedium: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/822153

I find the tako at 15 East stands as a signature offering; we simply have differing tastes /w respect to anago.
Another favorable aspect of that locale is the patron's affinities are being distinctly scoped.
I've seen individual, specific, unsolicited courses presented which lends the service a tailored/personal touch lacking in venues w/ set platings.
Hideo also goes to such lengths.

Eiji's anago ...

... on a recent visit glowed.
A light touch ... savory nitsume w/ a hint of sweetness.

AZ on tarantulas ... remember to double fry!

I'm sure this isn't "academic", so I'll leave you w/ more questions than, perhaps, solutions.

I guess it's no suprise, given a broader view, that insects provide so much protein.
But, I simply can't get over the image ... "Let Mikie eat it!"

Best Late Night Japanese

If you wander beyond the EV/LES perhaps Shigure on Churh off White is an option.
An izakaya w/ a smooth vibe and respectable selection of potables.
The dishes here are well executed but not forward.
The 'toro fugu hire' and 'kajika' hot sake selections here shoulder a brisk chill.

I'm curious.
Your abalone was served as sashimi.
Was the raw liver offered w/ yuzu as a side?

Hidden Japanese restaurant in East Village

I'm intrigued.
How did the shako stack up against other preps you've enjoyed?
Your mention of aka uni and awabi are a definite draw.
I'd recommend the hiramasa sashimi, yariika tempura and anago currently offered at Kanoyama.
Have you ever come across shinko during spring/early summer in nyc?
