Having opened in Meiji 32 (1899), and serving its signature yakitori (grilled chicken), unagi (eel) and nabe (hot pot) for over 110 years, Miyakagi is one of Nagoya’s longest-running restaurants.

The first floor is for those wanting to try the grilled food, with a kitchen that pumps out a smoky aroma onto one of Nagoya’s busiest roads, the bustling Hirokoji-dori, enticing customers to venture inside. But with winter just around the corner, I chose to eat upstairs to try one of its famous nabe. Although there is a wide range of side dishes to choose from, there are just three main nabe on the menu: sukiyaki (¥3,500), miso-suki (¥3,800) and its regular chicken nabe, shirataki (¥3,750).
