    Begin your evening adventure by visiting Aji Tasuke Honten for gyutan dinner. There are essentially as many places in Sendai serving beef younger as there are people who it it, so it can be difficult deciding where to start, but Aji Tasuke is always a fail safe option. All about quality over flamboyance, there isn't a lot of choice when it comes to beef tongue cooking options, however it's best to keep it simple just as the chef recommends. Simply seasoned with salt and cooked over a hot flame the dish is straightforward, simple and delicious. This unique beer dish came to be during the post war japan era when a yakiniku owner realized he could make use of the tongue and tails that were being left over by US occupation forces and before too long it became a sendai menu staple.

    Now that you've filled up on gyutan it's time to hit Kokubuncho street for a little izakaya hopping. Considered to be the little sibling of Shinjuku rather infamous Kabuchiko in Tokyo, it's definitely where the party folks like to hang. Whether you're in for a big one or a quite after dinner drink, the options are abundant here in this neighbour hood of bars. As well as drinking there are plenty of other smaller restaurants and karaoke bars that populate the area. Join the hard working and hard drinking local student and salaryman population of the city and make some new local friends.

    If you've survived a few hours in Kokubuncho and can still follow directions, then head straight to the city's main Seto Katsu (food court) this lively hub of late night establishments is a great place to unwind and try something new. Keep a lookout for the Craft Beer Market Chain establishment which is a great place to taste test a few small run brews.

    The Ha'penny Bridge pub is the final stop off of the night. This cozy Irish pub isn't the most typically Japanese hangout but it's a great comfort pub. Visiting the Ha'penny Bridge in the middle of winter feels like a warm, wholly embracing hug from an old friend.
