Norðic : The Bottom Line

Norðic is a cosy little bar that offers familialrity and friendliness as you walk in. Just make sure though you go on the right days if you want to have some of their food though I was more than happy with the buns I had on the day I went. The prices are reasonable and have some variety on the menu though with a selection of domestic and international offerings. The whole bar is non-smoking, has no table charge, and free WiFi.

Norðic : The Full Review

Rolling into Sendai after a morning spent at Uwamachi Cheers, I was in need of something fresh and tasty for lunch, when Norðic (pronounced as nordic) came up on Google Maps with my two requirements of food and craft beer. Yes, there are other places I could have gone to, which I eventually did get to; however, after scrolling through Norðic’s acccount on Instagram, admitedly not very thoroughly, off I went in search of this place.

Norðic is located around a 15 minute walk from JR Sendai station, though there are stations closer to it, with Aoba-Dori Ichibancho Station being less than a 5 minute walk, though with Sendai being such a beautiful city when the trees are fully covered in green leaves, and the pavements are adorned with flowers in bloom.

Norðic : Atmosphere & Interior

Norðic is a pretty small place inside, with barely enough space to swing a cat, let alone accomadate a large group of people. There’s space for 8 people inside, with 4 at the bar counter, and then another 4 at the window counter, so be prepared to get cosy with the person next to you. There isn’t any table charge at Norðic though there is some free wifi with the information, like other bars in the area, posted up on the wall.


Norðic : Beer & Tap Information

Norðic has 5 taps of craft beer on though there was a split between both domestic and imports. The domestic beers were from further afield, perhaps due to the nature of the food on offer, with some interesting choices on the imports with Spainish and Swedish beers on tap, and not from the usual breweries from those countries. The beers come in a variety of sizes though domestic beers were at 240 ml from 700 yen and 400 ml from 1200 yen – pretty expensive in my opinion, but the prices did include tax and were well served. The imports were priced much higher, with them being around an extra 200 to 400 yen. There wasn’t any choice of beer flight and nor was there a happy hour or the chance to get any beers to takeway.

Norðic : Food Information

I didn’t check the Instagram account for Norðic carefully enough as all I saw was some amazing looking food, as you will do too. So when I got there and found out that there wasn’t any food being served, besides some buns, then I was disappointed. However, my disappointment soon changed to utter deliriously being happy after trying one of the buns – a maple yuzukosho bun – which just blew me away. It was so good that I tried to get a second but someone had bought the last one, so instead I went and had the cinnamon one, which was nice but not as mind blowing. The menus were partly in English, so you could get way with coming here and not being able to read much Japanese. There were some options though for vegetarians though the menu does change on a seasonal basis so best check before you come.
