Eating eel on midsummer day of the ox

Tonight, I ate eel (unagi) at a sushi restaurant called Sushi Sams. In America, it is July 27, but in Japan it is already July 28, which to them is midsummer days of the Ox. On this day, it is supposed to be good to eat unagi. Foods that start with the "u" sound are supposed to help you deal with the heat of the summer.

今晩Sushi Samと言う寿司屋で鰻を食べた。アメリカの今晩は7月27日だ、でも同じ時は日本に7月28日(土用の丑の日)だ。 その日は鰻を食べることがいいだろうね。

同じ味と思います。 寿司シェフは日本人です。 愛知県から来ました。魚を築地から空輸貨物です。
I think it is the same taste. The sushi chef is Japanese. He came from Aichi. They also get much of their fish from the Tsukiji fish market by air freight.
