Tender, marbled, melt-in-the-mouth... these all describe the experience of eating Japanese wagyu beef. But why try just one kind, when you can go for 4 brands of Japanese wagyu beef, ending with the insanely delicious Kobe beef, which is famous worldwide. You indulge in four types of wagyu, in order from the least fatty to the most, with the gorgeous marbling contributing to the flavor and melt-in-the-mouth quality of the beef.
You’ll take a tour of Japan, without even leaving the restaurant, when you taste 4 types of Japanese beef during this wagyu shabu shabu dining experience. You’ll try Halal-certified wagyu from four different prefectures: Kagoshima beef from Kagoshima Prefecture, Hida beef from Gifu, Omi beef from Shiga, and Kobe beef from Hyogo. After tasting the meat in all of its pure, unadulterated glory, you’ll also get to mix it up even more with three different dipping sauces: the classic soy sauce, wasabi sauce for a kick in the taste buds, and the crowd pleasing nutty sesame sauce.
But first, you’ll enjoy a fresh, seasonal appetizer and get to taste the broth of the shabu shabu hot pot. The dashi soup stock is made from ago niboshi, tiny dried fish, in addition to Japanese kelp and bonito to make for a more complex flavor. Some vegetables are also briefly cooked in the broth, to lend even more flavor, before the meat is finally added. The term “shabu shabu” is Japanese onomatopoeia which refers to the “swish swish” sound that meat makes when it is waved back and forth with the soup broth. But don’t worry, after the beef has been consumed, the wagyu shabu shabu isn’t over yet! Kishimen, the classic flat noodle from Nagoya, will be added to the soup, so you can enjoy the flavors of the now meat-infused broth in a new way. Finally, it’s dessert time! Enjoy some ice cream, fruit, or pudding, alongside another cup of tea to finish on a sweet note.
