Unagi Nara Singapore is situated in the heart of Tanjong Pagar, right next to the hub of museums in the Downtown Core. Famous for specialising in unagi, which translates to freshwater eel in Korean, you’ll find this delicacy cooked to perfection in a variety of ways. While this stylish, modern Korean restaurant is located along Tanjong Pagar Road in Singapore, as soon as you enter, the interior transports you straight to the centre of Tokyo. The space itself features cute eel characters adorning the natural wooden walls, which creates an easy-going and relaxed atmosphere. One of Singapore’s most sought-after Korean restaurants, Unagi Nara is an absolute pleasure to visit.
As we mentioned above, Unagi Nara Singapore on Tanjong Pagar Road is centered around dishes featuring Korean freshwater unagi. You’ll find this unique delicacy prepared in a variety of ways, including served in a flavoursome broth, grilled on the charcoal BBQ or slow-cooked and served on a bed of jasmine rice. While this isn’t the only thing Unagi Nara serves, sampling the freshwater eel here is one of our favourite things to do in this charming Korean restaurant in Tanjong Pagar.
Alongside freshwater eel, Unagi Nara also serves many of the dishes that you’d come to expect from a Korean restaurant. You’ll find Korean classics as well as Korean bibimbap, stir fries with meat or seafood, marinated octopus and plenty more besides. You could be forgiven if your first thought when you read that this restaurant is all about eel, was that it would be a slimy, gelatinous mass. But the chefs at Unagi Nara are expert in cooking this interesting item and whether it’s grilled, baked or served in a soup, it’s all damn delicious. So whether you love unagi already, or simply adore Korean cuisine, this is one of the most exciting restaurants in Singapore. So book a table at Unagi Nara and make your way to Tanjong Pagar for a meal you won’t be forgetting.
The live octopus was chewy and experience.... unagi is bbq in the original flavour which was good... however, service was tad slow as there was only 1 waitress
