So, what’s the big deal about Kobe beef? I was thinking the same thing, until I took my first bite of the delectable, melt in your mouth like butter deliciousness. It was soooooo good!
special breed of Japanese cow. The way the cows are cared for is also suppose to be important , massages, beer, fresh food, etc. It's all about how the beef is marbleized with a mixture of meat and fat throughout.
We went to a fancy teppenyaki (cooking on an iron griddle) style restaurant called Wakkoku and had the meat cooked in front of us with vegetables. It's a pricey meal at about $85 per person, but you can reduce the costs by going at lunch. It's certainly worth a special visit if you enjoy beef.
