    牛タン


    Today I went to a barbecue restaurant and ate many grilled meat with my best friend.
    私は今日、親友と焼き肉を食べに行きました。

    The food what we first ate was gyū-tan (牛タン – “ox tongue”).
    最初に食べたのは「牛タン」です。

    I think that most Japanese people will first eat ox tongues when they go to a Japanese barbecue restaurant.
    多くの日本人は、焼肉屋に行くと最初に「牛タン」を食べます。

    Since ox tongues have less fat and are not strongly seasoned, you can enjoy the taste the most when you eat it first.
    タンは脂が少なく味付けも濃くないため、最初に食べるとその味を存分の楽しむことができます。

    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.
    さらに、塩で味付けされることが多く、肉を焼く網を汚しにくいことも最初に食べる理由になっています。
