You can make it fancy but it's still an eel.

Unagi is a Meat Food item cooked in the Crock Pot by adding 1 Eel and 1 Lichen. It takes 10 seconds to cook.

Unagi has the highest Crock Pot Priority (20) in Don't Starve base game. This means that placing an Eel and Lichen into any recipe will always result in Unagi.

It restores less Hunger than the Eel and Lichen combined, but heals 20 Health Meter.png and 5 Sanity Meter.png, so it can be useful whenever player's health is low. However, it spoils in 10 days (which is also affected by the Lichen's fast spoil time), so it is recommended to only cook it when needed or put it in an Ice Box.

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • If the player has easy access to Monster Meat, making a Surf 'n' Turf can be a better alternative than the Unagi.
  • Since Unagi has no filler restrictions, it can be used to regain Health and Sanity quickly in the Ruins by using either the naturally spawning Blue Caps or dropped Monster Meat as filler.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Unagi in Japanese means eel.
    • The Unagi as shown in the game depicts an Unakyu, which is eel used to prepare sushi.
