    Miyagi Pref. Sendaishi Aoba-ku Chuou 2-3-18
    The main store of Abe Kamaboko-ten is said to be where the name of the Sendai specialty, Sasa (bamboo) kamaboko, originated from. As well as selling all kinds of kamaboko (fish cake) including the bamboo kamaboko (fish cakes in the shape of bamboo leaves), visitors can also have a go at grilling their own bamboo kamaboko in the shop and of course taste it too.

    Looks like a gourd and cost 200 yen. However it is just alright. Pretty ordinary as the coat of battery is thick but then it is well fried. Buy to share. Have a try if you happen to walk past.
