    Miyagi Pref. Sendaishi Aoba-ku Kokubunchou 2-11-11 One thousand Matsushima building 1F
    A renowned beef tongue Japanese-style barbecue restaurant located in Sendai City. Legend has it that the original owner was the first chef in Sendai to make beef tongue barbecue. The original owner believed that salt was the key to maximizing the flavor of beef tongue, and today the restaurant continues to flavor its beef tongue using only salt. Most of the restaurant's menu selections are accordingly simple and served with mugimeshi boiled barley and rice. The tail soup, made by slow-stewing beef tail, is a secret yet highly popular dish the restaurant serves. This hearty dish is sure to satisfy.

    Delicious food, fair prices - awesome place ! I recomend this place for a dinner with friends. Best beef in Sendai in my honest opinion....

    Date no Gyutan is a beef tongue (gyutan) shop and restaurant about three minutes on foot from Sendai Station. The shop sells lots of beef tongue products starting with their thickly cut shintan made from the most tender part of the tongue. The restaurant serves an extra thick shintan set meal, and lots of other dishes off the a la carte menu.

    Very delicious. You must try!! You can even buy ox younger package back home but it will expire in a day, so the best way is to have it within a day.

    A popular local sushi restaurant located in front of Hon-Shiogama Station.

The restaurant’s most popular menu selection is its “tokujo” top class nigiri sushi. Sushi Tetsu offers high class sushi such as toro, uni, and abalone at reasonable prices. The reason is the owner’s desire to help people know what real, proper sushi tastes like by offering it as prices that are affordable.

    Pop into Sushitetsu on the way back from Matsushima Bay to Sendai after seeing the great reviews. Short queue to get in (about five mins) at around 1300 on a Monday. A family run enterprise led by a...

    店内は狭めであまり人数入らないので、外でちょっと待ってからの入店。 ずんだ餅、イチゴミルクの大福、おはぎ、焼き団子。などなど。 ずんだ餅は、とてもなめらかでスルリと口の中に入っていくような食感。あまり甘くないずんだ。 美味しいですね。 イチゴミルク大福も美味しかったです。
