Akebono unagi restaurant in Sendai

One of the great things of knowing people who live in the town you are visiting is that they can tell you the great little restaurants in the area. For example, the best unagi in Sendai is served in Akebono's restaurant, a tiny restaurant hidden away in a maze of tiny streets behind a shopping street. The restaurant might be a bit smokey and dirty, the broiled eel is delicious and the best you'll ever eat. The restaurant has been in the family for about 140 years and the master and his mother were kind enough to pose for a photo. Click here for the location in Google maps.
