The tenderloin is the most lean, tender part of the animal... but Wagyu Filet Mignon is special. Wagyu cattle are naturally predisposed to develop more marbling, that succulent webbing of creamy, high-quality fat.

Our filets are hand-cut as Chateaubriand and are just amazing... you could eat these with a butter knife... that's how soft they are. 

F1 Japanese Wagyu

Japanese F1 cattle stand as a testament to the artistry and science of cattle breeding, blending the best of two worlds to create an unparalleled gastronomic experience. Picture succulent marbling reminiscent of A5 Miyazaki-Gyu beef, seamlessly fused with the robustness and resilience of Holstein lineage. This deliberate fusion, known as the "Japanese F1" hybrid, isn't just about creating exceptional beef—it's about crafting a culinary masterpiece. With marbling scores typically ranging between 8 and 9, Japanese F1 beef boasts a luxurious texture and flavor profile that captivates the senses.

Japanese vs. American Cross

In Japan, the sanctity of Kuroge Wagyu genetics is safeguarded with unwavering dedication, ensuring that each succulent bite maintains the essence of true Wagyu heritage. This meticulous preservation translates into a consistency of quality and flavor that elevates Japanese Wagyu beef to a league of its own.

In contrast, American Wagyu production may tread a path of greater genetic variability, risking the dilution of those cherished Wagyu characteristics. While American producers undoubtedly strive for top-tier beef, the meticulous attention to genetic purity synonymous with Japanese practices sets Japanese F1 cattle apart as the pinnacle of perfection.

More Than Just Beef

Ultimately, Japanese F1 cattle offer more than just beef—they offer an experience. A symphony of flavor, texture, and aroma awaits those who savor the fruits of this meticulous breeding. As the global demand for premium beef continues to soar, embracing the Japanese F1 hybrid isn't just a choice; it's an invitation to indulge in the epitome of culinary excellence. Join the ranks of discerning connoisseurs and elevate your dining experience with Japanese F1 beef—a journey of flavor unlike any other.

Do note that marbling is not a driving indicator of tenderness, hence not all beef graded "Prime" is equal. (
