My son and I were out looking for dinner the other night and came across a spot I've long meant to go to, but hadn't had the chance yet. It's a Yakiniku restaurant specializing in horumon (offal) cuts. Who knew there were so many different kinds of intestines!
They are a cut above in that they use actual charcoal instead of gas, and of course the selection is pretty unique. They have an English menu, digital and analogue, and they weren't freaked out by gaijin coming in.
My son is not so adventurous, so he got a bibimbap, but he did try the hearts and duck skin I ordered and quite liked those. Not knowing much about offal (even in English), I went for the 5 types selection, along with extra hearts and duck skin. I was surprised by a couple of the meats (pork small intestine and abomasum - the 4th cow stomach) which were deliciously soft and fatty, while some of the others were what I've come to expect: chewy as all get out. The hearts were delicious, as was the duck skin.

Overall, it made for a nice change of yakiniku pace, and honestly I wouldn't mind returning to try out some of the other interesting things on the menu. Also, the price wasn't bad at all for yakiniku. Still, I just don't enjoy the process of sitting there cooking my own food, so I can't give it much beyond an Ok. And the chances of getting to come back are slim as no on else in my family is likely to appreciate it.
