Comments: As follows…
Ryuen is so famous that people on business trips or vacations from Tokyo, not to mention locals from Iwate itself, specifically seek it outto can partake of the great food and local atmosphere. The restaurant serves the ultra-high grade “MaesawaGyu” (for those not in the know, “gyu” is Japanese for beef), one of the most famous products from Oshu-shi, Iwate. “MaesawaGyu”is ranked along with “Kobe Beef” and “MatsuzakaGyu” as some of the best beef in Japan. Usually known as a luxury item, you can go to Ryuen and partake of this delicacy for a comparably reasonable price.

When you first come across the restaurant, you may think it is really small (some might even affectionately call it a “hole in the wall”), and when you go inside, you may be surprised by the smoky atmosphere. However, once the servers provide their speedy and friendly service, you will not be at the mercy of these small details.

Recommendations
Special Roast (Beef)
上ロース(牛)
・Inexpensive considering it is MaesawaGyu. Cut so thick you might mistake it for a dictionary!
・Very soft and juicy.
Spare Ribs (Pork)
スペアリブ(豚)
・A large quantity at cheap prices!
・The size of the cut is so big that you need scissors to cut it.Kind of makes you feel like Johnny Depp from Edward Scissorhands!

Just try it…
Tongue
タン
・One team member commented that this was the first time he had enjoyed eating tongue. (This is The Dragon Inn…Perhaps they were using the tongue of a dragon???)
Kobukuro
小袋
・Fallopian tubes from a pig! (They obviously don’t let anything go to waste at Ryuen.)
・A unique quality, and surprisingly delicious.

You might want to stay away from…
Rice
ごはん
・Why???
・You probably won't need it, as you will get plenty full from all that good meat you’ll be eating.
・If you do need a filler, try some reimen instead.
