Gyutan (牛タン) is one of the Japanese food made from grilled beef tongue. It is originated in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, but because of its popularity, you can eat in other cities today. Gyutan is so meaty and juicy, yet actually healthier than other meat, amazingly good food!

Negishi is a chain gyutan place having 34 restaurants within Tokyo like in Shinjuku and Sibuya.

It offers high-quality gyutan. They are thick and perfectly grilled on a metal mesh. Negishi focuses not only on gyutan, but also tororo (sticky dish made from Yamato yams) and mugi-meshi (Barley and rice), which are very healthy and nutritious. You should get Shirotan set meal (1620 yen) which you can have gyutan, tororo, and mugi-meshi.

Their gyutan is famous for its thickness. You can enjoy very meaty and chewy gyutan here. Set menu including Gyutan, rice, soup, and a side of vegetables is 1650 yen. They also offer creative menu like gyutan curry!

Date no Gyutan (伊達の牛たん)

This restaurant is from Sendai, where gyutan was born. They have three restaurants in Tokyo, two are very close to Tokyo Station.

Usually gyutan is grilled with salt, but they also cook it with miso, which is worth trying! The meaty flavor of gyutan goes well with miso. You can get a set menu that includes both salt and miso flavored gyutan which is highly recommended (1780 yen)!
