The Concept

Enjin’s dream is that one day the phrase ‘barbecue forest’ becomes an expression used in the Tajima area. The attractiveness of smoked foods comes from the fact that even if the ingredients used are identical, depending on the area where the food is being cooked, the surrounding nature and air has a great effect on the outcome of the taste of the end product. Here in Tajima, there is a cornucopia of natural resources that make for delicious and unique ingredients when used for cooking. As the number of smoked food restaurants in Tajima increase, everywhere the smoke from barbecues billows from the forests, and the people of each area are enjoying the natural blessings of the land while giving thanks back to them. The people at Enjin are keeping that dream in mind, and spend their days enjoying barbecue culture and making delicious foods.

The Food

Even though ‘barbecue’ is only one word, there are many different factors that determine the taste of the final product. Whether it be smoked to be sweet, smoked with spices, smoked to be sour, smoked with one type of wood versus another, each different factor plays a part in determining what kind of flavor and aroma the food will have.

Finding the perfect formula for smoking the food is a difficult venture, and through much trial and error, Enjin has perfected a variety of specialty smoked dishes they think you’ll enjoy. Among them is smoked duck, beef tongue, venison and plum sauce, and pickled daikon radish. Using their own personally made wood-chipping blends for their charcoal fires, they truly have carefully thought out every aspect of the smoking process, and can’t wait for you to visit them and experience these tastes for yourself.
