Sandaime Bunji 三代目 文治
Delicious but expensive Sendai (仙台) food. Mainly 2 specialties: gyotan and oden. The gyotan steak, skewers and kakuni (cubes) were excellent!! Well grilled and well stewed, yet maintaining the distinctive flavour and texture of ox tongue. The oden was authentic, 7 pieces floating in a refillable soup base. They even replace the solid fuel promptly when it burns out. The white cold noodles was fantastic and came with a good dipping sauce that had a tinge of yuzu in it. The vegetable fish cake was perhaps the blah-est of the lot. Dessert was the house special mochi: sweet and interesting in texture but perhaps not to everybody's liking. Friendly, polite and prompt service.
