A must eat! Six restaurants where you can enjoy quality Wagyu at reasonable prices

April 6, 2019
Japanese "Wagyu" beef like Kobe beef and Matsusaka beef is highly appreciated around the world.
You know it's delicious but it's so expensive that it's out of reach…but you also want to try it at least once!
If this sounds like you, here are some fantastic restaurants where you can enjoy high-quality Wagyu at a reasonable price.

1. Japan's 3 Great Wagyu #1: Kobe beef

The world-renowned Kobe beef is valued for its fine marbling and rich, melting texture. It's also famous because of the popular NBA basketball player Kobe Bryant, whose father was so impressed by the Kobe beef he ate in Japan that he named his son after it.
At Steakland Kobekan, you can enjoy Kobe beef at an affordable price!

Omi beef is the oldest Wagyu brand in Japan with about 400 years of history. While it's top-quality Wagyu like Matsusaka and Kobe beef, it's not as well-known and it's more affordable. We recommend combining it with a visit to Hikone, which is famous for Hikonyan, the city mascot.
