As I mentioned earlier, one of my main goals of my trip to Sendai was to eat beef tongue, a Sendai specialty. And a feast of beef tongue I did eat.


Even for someone who can eat an absurd amount of the same food, this was a bit much. It was all delicious, I guarantee you, but I felt the oil and meatiness of the beef for the rest of the day. The other Sendai specialty is zunda mochi.


Zunda mochi is ground edamame sweetened like red bean, wrapped around mochi. If that sounds weird, that's because it is. But it's sweet, and not bad. With one more day of our trip, my friend and I decided to use the opportunity to try one more ramen shop. This time Ryuzo: miso ramen in the style of neighboring prefecture Yamagata.

The Bowl
Nothing's better on a mid-June afternoon than a spicy bowl of miso ramen. It was an oily bowl of miso that might not have been anything special on its own, but the spice really knocked it up a notch. It provided a good kick, and some nice peppery flavor. The noodles were a bit thick and hard, but they went well with the spicy broth.


Would I Go Again?
Yeah, I love miso, and it was pretty good.


Should You Go?
If you're in Sendai, this is a place to check out.
