The Best Restaurants in Sendai

Sendai’s culinary culture is defined by an inventive mentality that relishes challenging the status quo

Sendai’s culinary culture is defined by an inventive mentality that relishes challenging the status quo | © Tribune Content Agency LLC / Alamy Stock Photo

Sendai is a city of culinary adventure. Home to grilled beef tongue and incredible sushi, it’s relatively untraversed by the regular visitor to Japan, meaning there are plenty of secret local hangouts to explore, and no crowds to battle for a seat at the table.

Sendai’s restaurants are renowned for their excellent grilled beef tongue and incredible sushi | © Phil Hill / Alamy Stock Photo

Sendai’s restaurant scene has no strong unifying theme, which is a large part of its appeal. Other pockets of Japan specialise in particular cuisines, but in Sendai, there’s an atmosphere of anything – and everything – goes.

The city’s culinary community is home to chefs that like to innovate. This mentality of invention and challenging of the status quo can be seen in the city’s most famous dish, gyutan (salt-grilled beef tongue), which was invented as a way to cut back on meat waste.

Gyutan is a speciality of the Miyagi region, and can be found in various restaurants across Sendai | © Kyoko Uchida / Alamy Stock Photo

Flanked by snowy mountains on one side and a rugged, bountiful ocean on the other, it’s near impossible to run out of food options in Sendai. Whether it’s high-quality Japanese beef, fresh-caught sushi, fancy French dishes or classic Italian fare, Sendai’s got it.

Try the famous beef tongue at Rikyu

Restaurant, Japanese, $$$

Gyutan is Sendai’s most iconic dish, first born from thriftiness but later becoming a delicacy. In 1948, yakitori chef Keishiro Sano crafted the beef tongue dish as a way to minimise waste and experiment with flavour. In the decade that followed, it’s been grilled and remade to perfection. Rikyu is a restaurant that specialises in gyutan and offers plenty of options to enjoy the dish beyond the classic grilled style, including deep-fried and sushi.

Pop into Sendai’s kitchen for a snack

Market, Japanese

While calling it a restaurant may be a bit of a stretch, if you’re serious about getting a real taste of the city, then you have to visit the Sendai morning market. Known around town as ‘Sendai’s kitchen’, it’s where the chefs go to pick up their supplies and the locals go for a chat. The market has been running for over 70 years now, and you’ll find all sorts of goodies here, from seasonal fruits to freshly caught sushi. One of the highlights is the food stall Crokke-ya, which sells deep-fried potato, mackerel and pumpkin croquettes for less than ¥100 (£0.70) apiece.

Try budget-friendly, high-end sushi at Kokorozukushi Inase

Restaurant, Japanese, $$$

Sitting not far from the untamed coastline of Tohoku, Sendai is a city filled with excellent seafood options, and Kokorozukushi Inase (心づくし いなせ) is a great place to begin. The shop serves seafood caught around the Sanriku coastline and seasonal vegetables in a traditional setting. Kokorozukushi Inase’s main motivation for doing business is to showcase the bountiful produce of the Miyagi region, and its dishes are served like delicate edible works of art. The restaurant feels upmarket, but at an average price of ¥6,000 (£43) per person, it’s far more affordable than it feels.

Embrace the craft beer scene at Craftsman Sendai

Craft Ale Bar, Restaurant, Italian, $$$

While in general, craft beer has taken a little longer to catch on here than the rest of the world, places like Craftsman Sendai (クラフトマン 仙台) are making up for lost time. This establishment is a fusion of local ingenuity and international influence. It’s a combination Italian restaurant and craft beer barn where guests can sample some of the country’s most exciting small-batch brews while enjoying world-class Italian cuisine made with locally produced seasonal vegetables.

Enjoy dinner with a view at Restaurant Symphony

Restaurant, French

When Sendai folk want dinner with a view, Restaurant Symphony in The Westin Sendai hotel is one of their top picks. Located on the top floors of the landmark Sendai Trust Tower, Symphony serves up French-style and internationally inspired cuisine with excellent panoramic views of downtown Sendai. Perfect for a romantic dinner or an upscale lunch, the restaurant has both buffet and à la carte options and cocktails to match.

Try beef that’s better than wagyu at Datenari

Pub, Restaurant, Japanese, $$$

Tucked on the unassuming seventh floor of a commercial building in central Sendai, Datenari is a cosy izakaya (Japanese-style pub) that specialises in high-quality local beef known as sendai-gyu. Sendai-gyu is so highly regarded in the area that it can only be bred by licensed farmers. If you’ve had kobe and wagyu beef, then the next level up is Datenari’s ‘Black Date’ sendai-gyu beef. A course serving of this high-class delicacy costs around ¥10,000 (£72), but you can’t put a price on quality.

Indulge in beer and pizza at the Dumbo Pizza Factory

Restaurant, Bar, Italian, $$$

Excellent pizza, craft beers and an atmosphere that’s very laid-back, Dumbo Pizza Factory ticks all the boxes for an easy night out. The restaurant serves authentic neapolitan pizzas as well as Western-style sides and has a craft beer menu that’s at least 20 beers long and rotates regularly. If you’re the indecisive type, you can always opt for the banquet deal, which for ¥3,500 (£25) Sunday to Thursday (or ¥5,000 (£36) on Fridays and Saturdays) gets you a menu-wide rage of dishes and three hours all-you-can-drink alcohol.

Gyutan Yakisuke Nagakecho

Pub, Japanese, $$$

While eating upmarket is well and good, if you want to get out like a Sendai local, you’ve got to hit one of the intimate smokey izakayas like Gyutan Yakisuke Nagakecho. As per the name, Gyutan Yakisuke Nagakecho’s main speciality is yakisuke, a simple but delicious dish of salt-grilled beef tongue that’s been masterfully roasted over hot coals that is best enjoyed with a tall frosty ‘nama’ (tap) beer. If you’re a big drinker, consider booking the 150 minute-long all-you-can-drink pack that offers free-flowing booze for ¥2,100 (£15).

Sendai Restaurant Guide

Sendai is a neat little area in Miyagi Prefecture in Tohoku. As far as scenery goes, it's got the best of both worlds - nestled between the mountains and the sea, surrounded by greenery. Its proximity to the sea means the restaurants are always stocked with the freshest seafood from the Shiogama Fish Market, serving delicacies like sushi, sasa kamaboko (white fish cakes), and harakomeshi (salmon belly meat marinated and diced, served mixed in to rice along with salmon roe). The mountainous grassy terrain is home to plenty of cow pastures providing restaurants with succulent cuts of Sendai gyutan, or beef tongue, ready to be grilled to absolute perfection.

Local shops and restaurants use regional ingredients like the widely popular Sendai miso, a deep red miso made with locally grown soybeans and packed with umami (flavor). If you fancy the fresh taste of soybeans, another tasty treat to try is zunda, or sweetened mashed edamame, made only in this area. It can be eaten in a variety of ways, including in zundamochi, zunda cakes, and as a topping for toast.
