Sendai is known for beef tongue and the most famous dish is TANYAKI (Broiled tongue), now there are many Sendai-style beef tongue restaurants, but 10 yrs ago there were only a handful. TANYA SHINOBU at Yotsuya was one of the 1st restaurants to specialize in beef tongue and is still the most popular.

There are three must eats here. Of course, you want to order TANYAKI (Broiled tongue) for 1,100 yen. The sprinkle salt and pepper several hours before they broil it. It is different from beef tongue you have at Korean BBQ. Much tastier and meatier.

YOUDE TAN (Boiled tongue) for 980 yen. It is boiled in a clear beef and vegetable soup for several hours. Add some wasabi on top and it is just super tender. My favorite dish by far here.

Then TAN STEW (Tongue stew) for 1,100 yen, which is also extra tender cooked in a demi-glace sauce.

Other beef tongue dishes they have are MISOZUKE TAN (Tongue marinated in miso) for 1,100 yen,

TAN NO DOTENI (Tongue miso stew) for 680 yen,

TAN NO SHOGANI (Tongue ginger stew) for 680 yen,

and at the end of your meal, you want to order TAN ZOUSUI (Rice porridge with tongue),

There are many other dishes besides the above beef tongue dishes like OHITASHI (Boiled vegetables in season) for 420 yen,

YAMAIMO PONZUZUKE (Ponzu sauce pickled mountain potato) for 560 yen,

and KYURI NO NINNIKU SHOYU ZUKE (Cucumbers pickled with garlic soy sauce) for 600 yen.

Make sure you make a reservation before dining here and even if you do, they will make you wait outside for a couple of minutes. And if you don't, you can be waiting for a couple of hours. This place is more like an izakaya and its not a fancy restaurant at all. Tables are right next to each other and service isn't the best, but if you enjoy beef tongue, I'm sure you will enjoy their food.
