My betrothed and I had an early dinner at Sumo Niku near the end of 2018. This place was in soft opening at a new portion of already gargantuan SM North EDSA called the North Towers (except it’s not really a tower; the mall is more elongated than tall and perhaps more fitting to be called North Wall). We happened upon the place while exploring the new mall section and we learn that they offer unlimited barbecue similar to most other Korean all-you-can-eat places popping up all over the place. Since the price seemed fair, we decided to try it out.
This is a part of my Sendai, Japan trip. If you want to have an overview of my entire Japan “Food Odyssey”, I suggest you start with my 7-Eleven review and follow the different links from there.
Based on my research, one of Sendai’s specialties is their gyu-tan or beef tongue. While exploring alone in the busy Friday night streets of Sendai, looking for a place that serves its specialty, I perchanced Higashiyama which featured an English menu on the outside that serves what I was looking for. Although the prices were quite steep, since I was still within budget, and because I didn’t know yet the problems that will arise the following day, I decided to splurge here.
