Sendai, beef tongue capital of the world!!
Beef tongue grill is Sendai as the birthplace. Keijiro Sano (the late), the first of the "Ajutsuke", opened a specialty shop in Beppu Tanaki in the center of Sendai City in 1943, spreading its taste throughout the country.
Creator of beef tender roast, Keiji Sano
Keijiro Sano was born as the second son of a farmer in Nishigori village (presently Hebei Town) in Yamagata prefecture. When I was in the twenties who was practicing cooking in Tokyo (around 1954), I taught the taste of beef tongue used for stews etc. from French chefs and devised methods to taste Japanese preference.
"It was around 1945. The cook I met when I was practicing Japanese cuisine in Tokyo, I do not think there's anything better than a cow's tongue .Not supposed to eat and eat by myself Mita, this is a really good taste. "Keijiro Sano, creator of beef tender roe, looked back at the time when he met a beef tongue for the first time.
Keijiro Sano pulled yakitori 's stalls during the war and gradually passed through Hanamaki City, Shiroishi City, Miyagi Prefecture Shibata Town and so on. I came to Sendai shortly after the war.
At the time of opening, the era of supply shortage. Materials were not available and I often went to buy Yamagata on the first train in the morning. Even if there is no thing, it is a manifestation of commitment to continue shop with one beef tongue.
Keijiro Sano passed away on March 15, 1994, but then the eldest son, Kazuo Sano (the shopkeeper), is taking over "Atsutsuke". -
