The eel is the real deal at Kokoro

Eel is my favorite protein, in an "if-I-had-a-last-meal-request-on-death-row" kind of way. I was very disappointed in the eel I tried at Tokyo Joe's, but at least my review of that sad meal inspired an insightful Westword reader to steer me toward local mini-chain Kokoro. And as it turns out, the unagi bowl there is the best and least expensive eel I've found in Denver.

Random Cafe Society fan: your next unagi bowl at Kokoro is on me.
