Takamori Wagyu is known as “Drunken Wagyu” as it comes from a select group of cows fed a sake mash from Dassai - Asahi Brewery, one of the most recognized sake makers in Japan. The result is a steak with a mild, sweet flavor with a silky textyre that is lighter than other A5 steaks.

Takamori Wagyu is sourced from a single farm, the Iwakuni farm located in Japan's Yamaguchi Prefecture. 

This is a Tri-Tip steak cut in the shape of a filet. Its a nice, round, thick steak that has a lot of flavor... The tri-tip is a small, triangular cut from the sirloin. It goes by the name "The Newport" or "Santa Maria" steak the Tri-Tip is a very popular cut in California and South America. It is a lean cut, with a beefy taste... slightly nutty.

ABOUT A5

A5 beef is measured on five factors: (1) marbling, (2) meat color and brightness, (3) firmness and texture of meat, and (4) color, luster and quality of fat.

In the quality grade, the lowest score from the four items of the yield grade is adopted. In other words, even if grade 5 was given to marbling, color and brightness, and firmness and texture, and only fat assessments was grade 4, the quality grade of this beef is classified as grade 4. Quality grading is severely done.

A5 means this beef excels in every single factor.It has a gorgeous webbing of fat that will make you feel a creamy mouth-feel in each bite. Its literally like tasting a cloud... a cloud of beef.

Like all of our steaks, they come vacuum sealed and have been hand-cut by our expert butchers. 

 

NEVER HAD A5 BEEF BEFORE?

At first glance every cut of A5 beef will be EXTREMELY fatty compared to any other steak you have ever had. That delicate and yet rich fat, which can make up to more than 60% of the steak is what makes it melt in your mouth. 

This amount of fat makes the beef have a lower melting point, meaning it will cook faster than your average steak. Cooking A5 is extremely easy, that said... it is recommended to pay close attention so that you do not burn or overcook your steaks.

Best Cooked: Medium-Rare, Medium, Medium-Well
