For 5000yen you get to try a little bit of many different kinds of cow horumon. Most importantly they are presented nicely as in a kaiseki course so even my friend who normally can't eat horumon was able to finish everything(well except the kobukuro which still had a distinct smell). Pancreas is rare and I've never seen it served anywhere else. My favourite part of the course are the cow tongue dango and the zaru-udon though. Rather than Japanese style, I think I prefer horumon prepared in Korean style like this place and this place.

Horumon means giblets, including uterus. ^^;;; Uterus had a little of funny smell, but otherwise it is just like tendon.

Ah so that's what horumon means. cow's uterus...^^;;; even I found that icky. How does it smell/taste like? Yes I feel that many of these throw-away parts, especially toward the lower abdomen, needed stronger sauce, heavy flavor like garlic to season, instead of the light yuzu based Japanese seasoning (too much real flavor coming out).
