Horumonyaki (Japanese: ホルモン焼き) is a kind of Japanese cuisine made from beef or pork offal. Kitazato Shigeo, the chef of a yōshoku restaurant, one that specializes in Western-derived cuisine, in Osaka devised this dish, and registered a trademark in 1940.[1] The name horumon is derived from the word "hormone", which means "stimulation" in Greek.[2] The name horumon is also similar to the Kansai dialect term hōrumon (放る物), which means "discarded goods". Horumonyaki has a reputation for being a "stamina building" food.[3]
