    Miyagi Pref. Motoyoshigunminamisanrikuchou Shidugawa Kurosaki 99-17
    A restaurant located inside the Minami Sanriku Hotel Kanyo. Non-guests are also free to make use of the establishment. The restaurant's signature dish is the Minami Sanriku Kirakira-don, invented by the proprietress to help aid the recovery of areas stricken by the Great East Japan Earthquake. This tasty rice bowl is topped with local ingredients which are changed depending on what's in season, such as sea urchin and ikura salted salmon roe. This dish was awarded the 2014 Judge's Special Prize by Food Action Nippon for its role in speeding disaster recovery.

    Be prepared for a huge, touristy hotel. If you prefer small ryokans with personal touch services, this place isnt for you. Most of their customers come from tour groups. Service was very good and we...

    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....

    Shiogama-shi, Miyagi-ken 2-22
    A popular local sushi restaurant located in front of Hon-Shiogama Station. Shiogama City boasts one of the largest catches of tuna in the country, and accordingly it is quite a large number of sushi restaurants in respect to its population. It is in this hotly contested market that Sushi Tetsu has maintained its popularity for many years thanks to its use of carefully selected local ingredients and superb technique. 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...

    車で行くとわからなくなる位、小さいお店です。駐車場も有りませんから近くのコインパーキングへ停めて店内に、イートインできる場所も有ります。メニューはすでに決めており、ずんだ餅一点狙いです!!ここのずんだ餅は非常にずんだがなめらかで、口残りが無くフワフワ、食べ始めるとツルリツルリと消えていきます。甘さも抑えて有り非常に美味しいお菓子です。お土産用にも購入して帰りましたが自分達で食べてしまいました。

    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.

    Miyagi Pref. Shiogamashi Shintomichou 6-12
    Located a 10 minute walk from Hon-Shiogama Station, Kameki-Sushi is a popular sushi restaurant in Shiogama City, which boasts an abundance of sushi restaurants. Diners can enjoy Sanriku seafood brought in that morning into Shiogama Port flavored with moshio seaweed salt, a Shiogama specialty product. The seasonal assortment is particularly popular, and gives diners the chance to enjoy a variety of seasonal nigiri sushi pieces at a reasonable price. Kameki Sushi’s tamago-yaki rolled omelets made with surimi minced fish are also very popular. Due to the cheesecake-like appearance and elegant sweetness, many people order one to enjoy almost like a dessert.

    I lived about 3 minutes walk from Kamekizushi and became a regular, so much so that the head sushi chef taught me all about good sushi. He introduced me to aburi toro sushi(lightly fired tuna) and...

    This shop specializing in beef tongue is about a seven-minute drive from Miyaginohara Station on the JR Senseki Line. Sendai is the birthplace of beef tongue in Japan, and this shop has carefully preserved the traditional flavor since its founding. The chefs quickly sear the meticulously selected, high quality beef tongue over a charcoal fire. Their set meal comes highly recommended, featuring juicy beef tongue carefully seasoned piece by piece paired perfectly with oxtail soup. They also offer a wealth of other dishes packed with beef tongue such as curry, stew, and boiled beef with cream.

    A pizzeria located close to Akiu Onsen, one of the three most renowned hot spring hotel and bathhouses in the Oshu region. The restaurant is located in a lush, naturally beautiful location surrounded by the Akiu Forest. The restaurant has a tile-covered oven used to bake its thick, pan-style pizzas at high temperature.

    Excellent pizza - Japanese always do Italian food well. The building used to be the community clinic and theres some witty and interesting decorations that reflect this. Lunch prices are reasonable.
