Be Your Own Butcher
Serving someone A5 Wagyu for the first time is almost as pleasurable as eating it yourself. Enjoy both and then some with our new A5 Japanse Wagyu Prime Rib and Striploins. The Loin is where the most expensive cuts of beef come from, but portioning out your own thick-cut Ribeye or New York steaks after purchasing is far more economical than buying A5 Wagyu steaks a la carte.
Direct from Japan
We’ve gone to great (and enormously delicious) lengths to bring you A4 and A5 Wagyu, sourced directly from an elite group of Wagyu farmers in the Kagoshima prefecture. After securing an introduction, we tasted their life-changing beef and now we bring it to you.
Since 1966, Japan's beef industry has held a nationwide competition every five years to crown the best beef in the country. It's called Zenkoku Wagyu Noryku Kyoshin-kai (全国和牛能力共進会) but it's known also as "The Wagyu Olympics". There are 11 prize categories, one of the more interesting of which measures the quality of the fats (looking for things like the health-promoting and umami-generating oleic acid). There's also an overall winner, based on the average of scores across the categories. In September 2017, Kagoshima beef took the top prize based on overall contest scores (総合得点による「団体賞」は、鹿児島県が１位). You could say that Kagoshima's A5 Wagyu is one of the very best Japanese beef you can buy!
