What is "Wagyu Steak"?
"Wagyu" is the japanese word for beef. "Wa" means japanese style and "gyu" means beef. Kobe is the region where the Wagyu breed and feeding techniques for Wagyu cattle originated. Wagyu is a pure japanese breed with records dating back to 1830. It is widely recognized as the best quality of beef due to its high degree of marbling which gives tenderness, juiciness, and flavor unrivaled by any other cattle anywhere in the world. Wagyu combines the USDA scale and the strict Japanese scale of grading Kobe beef to create a SUPER Prime grade. The ambiance and mystique are nearly as important in the eating experience as they melt in your mouth with flavor and tenderness.
