The Fire Deity

He Who Stands By The Hearth
Protects the Land and Cattle and
Defends the 3 Buddhist Treasures.
Fire brings to mind images of destruction, anguish, and pain. But in
the hands of SAMBO KOJIN, the Japanese Kitchen God, fire creates,
gratifies and protects.

Our Story

Yakiniku. The real thing means grilled meats in its broadest sense, traces its beginning to Korean immigrants in Japan’s Kansai area after the World War II. The original Korean invention was known as ‘hurumonyaki’ the precursor of the popular ‘bulgogi’ which literally means ‘fire meat’ because it is cooked over burning flames.

From SAMBO KOJIN, the Japanese kitchen god, the fire bearer who held dominion over home and hearth, in whose honor, the ultimate “grill all you can, eat all you can Yakiniku” restaurant Sambo Kojin was named now offers the best of Japanese barbecue and the charm of its Korean counterpart.

Highlighting the freshest and most premium meat, poultry, seafood and vegetable yakiniku menu items, with a range of sumptuous cooked specialties and an extensive sushi bar, diners enjoy the ritual pleasures of grilling and the delight of feasting together on dishes resulting from the mastery of a Japanese and Korean culinary tradition.
