Annam is not only the newest but also the sole authentic Vietnamese Restaurant In the whole of Sendai City!
And it has a remarkable story (history)!
The very restaurant actually used to be in Shizuoka City, Shizuoka Prefecture!
The chef/owner, Miss Nguyen Thi Hong (Japanese name, Mai Kudo), was the Chef in the Shizuoka City Restaurant when the previous owner, also a Vietnamese/Japanese National had to retire for family reasons.
Among their faithful customers were a family from Sendai City who had taken a special liking to Miss Nguyen to the point of adopting her into their family!
So when the shop closed they proposed her to move to Sendai City with them and re-open the restaurant under the same name, with the same furniture and the same cuisine concept!
And their common venture was opened in August 2017 in Sendai City!
I used to be one of their faithful customers back in Shizuoka City and when I visited Sendai City I just could not miss it!
Mai San (Nguyen Thi Hong) was certainly surprised!
And it was such a pleasure to enjoy the same and delicious morsels!
Fresh Spring Rolls!
Vietnamese Green Papaya salad!
For a closer view!
Vietnamese style o-konomiyaki!
Paper-thin crispy omelet!
Plenty of beansprouts inside!
Pan-fried rice vermicelli!
With all kinds of deep-fried tidbits!
Pig ears terrine!
And don’t forget the Pho Soups!
Looking forward to my next trip to Sendai City!
