ATSUKO SUZUKI 鈴木貴子さん

A native of Sendai, living in Matsushima for 5 years. Opened a local food select shop, M Pantry, in Matsushima-cho in 2014. It collects foods from Miyagi. She always puts out an antenna looking for delicious foods and fun things to do in Matsushima-cho.

Q.1

Where is your favorite spot to stop by?

I’ve visited Shiogama Shrine since I was little. It is a place where I go at various turning points of my life such as shichigosan (a ceremony to celebrate a child’s growth), the New Year, entrance examinations, a ceremony for driving away ill fortune, praying for good business, and so forth. It is a place where I can visit casually and relax.

Q.2

What is a soul food of Matsushima and Shiogama areas that you’re proud of?

Horaiten, a local Chinese restaurant. I order a set of traditional Chinese noodles and Chinese-style fried rice for a holiday lunch. Not only are the noodles high quality, but the white rice in the set meals of this restaurant is excellent. I feel so happy when I eat it with side dishes.

Q.3

Which is your favorite neighborhood spot?

Sugihara Isao Shoten provides seasonal fresh seafood caught in Matsushima Bay including grilled seafood that you can eat on-site. We recommend that you try the oysters. You can enjoy oysters raw, grilled, fried, or as a one-pot meal.
