Shogun Madrid: Hibiki, Kobe, & Wagyu


Shogun Madrid is part of The Adios Puerto Rico, Hola España Trip Report. Read TPOL in Madrid: Why A Second Residency?

I went to an underwhelming pho restaurant in Madrid (see Pho Madrid: No Me Gusta). I went to the novel sushi train restaurant twice (see TPOL’s Tip: Arrive Early to Avoid Sushi Terrorists). And I went to the Hong Kong, Japan, China combo restaurant as well (see A Taste of China, Hong Kong, and Japan…in Madrid). To cap off my local Asian food in Spain experience, I went to Shogun, an upscale Japanese BBQ.


Having consumed enough red wine in the last few weeks (see Best Tapas Madrid: No Budget Cuts Here), I decided to switch to whiskey. When in Madrid, Japan, that can only mean one thing: Hibiki.

Set Menu 

There are two set menus: One that is expensive. And one that is more expensive. Since it is unlikely that I am going to return to Madrid, Japan in the future, I went with option B. Here’s what I received:


  • Edamame

    Fancier than your local sushi joint.
  • Madrid, Japan Croquettes
  • Gyoza

    Gyoza con Panda
  • Udon Soup

The Beef

I came for the beef and I paid more to receive the best cuts of Kobe.

Quality goes from left to right.

Look at that Kobe marbling.


The directions were simple. Put it on the grill. Take it off the grill. Enjoy life.


Sadly, it was over far too quickly. Dessert was plum liquor and sweets.


You may be wondering, how much did it cost? The less expensive menu is 47 euros per person. The upgrade is 82.50 euros per person. With two Hibikis, I spent $200.

TPOL’s Tip: Shogun is located at C. de Málaga, 3, 28003 Madrid, Spain.


    • Haha I took the metro once. Bolt was so cheap and faster that it wasn’t worth bothering with the public transit. Or I walked. It’s coming
