Japanese: Yakiniku

Bovin Description

Located just a 5-minute walk from Sannomiya Station in Kobe, Bovin is a unique and captivating restaurant that specializes in yakiniku (Japanese barbecue) and horumon (offal). What sets Bovin apart from other dining establishments is its commitment to using locally sourced ingredients, particularly the rare and highly prized Tajima beef from Hyogo Prefecture. The owner of Bovin, who has worked at the Kobe Nishi Market Meat Center, ensures that only the freshest and highest quality horumon is served to satisfy the cravings of horumon enthusiasts.

One of the standout menu items at Bovin is the Kurotan Wagyu Harami, a rare cut of Japanese beef that is known for its tenderness and rich flavor. Another must-try dish is the Motsunabe, a hot pot filled with Bovin's signature horumon and a flavorful broth made with garlic and white miso. For those looking for a more affordable option, Bovin offers set courses such as the A Course, which includes five dishes featuring a variety of Bovin's delicious meats, and the B Course, which offers six dishes including their popular Mega Series.

The restaurant's interior is cozy and inviting, with a focus on creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for diners. Bovin also boasts an extensive selection of wines from around the world, making it the perfect place to enjoy a delicious meal paired with a glass of your favorite vintage.

First visit. I heard that you can eat fresh offal. I went for an all-you-can-eat offal lunch.
A lot of things came out and it was crazy
It was delicious. It only takes 45 minutes, so if you get all the recommendations, it might be too long to get another refill (lol)
Still, I think it's a good deal for the price.

I want to come and try it at night too.
Repeat is confirmed


I went with my friend(^^)
The hormones are so fresh that I can't explain it anymore and it's so delicious (^^)

All I can say is that it has no odor and is delicious.

The wife is also very friendly and chats with me from the time I make the reservation over the phone, she is also very service-oriented🤣🤣

I'm hungry so I'll go again soon ヽ(´ー`)ノ
We recommend going for lunch on weekdays ☆
Be sure to make a reservation before you go (^^)


Second visit.
It's a small shop with 2 tables of 4 seats, 6 seats at the counter, and a private room.
MEGA meat is quite impressive. The staff will grill it to the right degree. Others are self-baked. Personally, I found the salt tongue to be the most delicious.
