Man this place ruined Sendai tongue for us! Everything we ordered was chewy and too salty. And we love tongue! We were so disappointed. A much better place....Tsukasa right by Daiwa Roynet Hotel.

Grilled beef tongue is not on most lists but give it a try. It has a bit more texture than beef but the grilled taste is delicious. There is no mineral aftertaste like organ meats. We had the 4-slice set with soup, salad and rice....More
