Tōhoku ｘ Nagoya—New-Japanese Food Restaurant Aoki Shōten
The delicious looking cuisine in the picture above is actually gyūtan (cow tongue), which is one of Sendai specialties, burned with Nagoya miso.
This is an original dish offered at New-Japanese Food Restaurant Aoki Shōten. This is the story about a bond between Nagoya and Sendai.
This is Heisei no Sendai Shirō.
New-Japanese Food Restaurant Aoki Shōten serves dishes including ones made with Sendai specialties as well as Nagoya cuisine such as doteni, miso kushikatsu, tebasaki.
They use ingredients not only from Aichi but also from Tōhoku.
”By using food from Tōhoku, we’d like to help as much as possible.”
Aoki Shōten has kept making dishes with ingredients from Tōhoku since after the Great East Japan Earthquake to provide people with opportunities to know how delicious they are.
They adapt Sendai specialty gyūtan for Nagoya-style, so that their customers think about Tōhoku in Nagoya which is far from the region
Following the 2011 disaster, the restaurant’s owner visited affected areas thinking he had to do what he was able to help people.
As he conveyed his experience through the supporting activity, he started a donation campaign at his restaurant and purchasing ingredients from Tōhoku.
Pleasant-smelling Nagoya-Miso-Grilled Gyūtan is a big draw of Aoki Shōten.
