Gyū-tan (牛タン – Ox Tongue)

  • Gyū-tan


    Today I went to a barbecue restaurant and ate many grilled meat with my best friend.

    The food what we first ate was gyū-tan (牛タン – “ox tongue”).

    I think that most Japanese people will first eat ox tongues when they go to a Japanese barbecue restaurant.

    Since ox tongues have less fat and are not strongly seasoned, you can enjoy the taste the most when you eat it first.

    In addition, it is often seasoned with only salt, so ox tongues do not contaminate a grill or iron plate; this is the other reason that people eat ox tongues first.
