Benihana Brings You Affordable Wagyu Menu

Wagyu Menu

Benihana have launched a Wagyu Festival Menu as an affordable way to eat what is considered to be an exclusive and expensive luxury.

Known for its quality Wagyu is often presumed to command a very high price however this is now not the case as Benihana present the Wagyu Festival Menu so everyone can celebrate the taste of this fabulous tasting beef. The Benihana teppan style of cooking suits Wagyu perfectly as the marbling benefits from swift cooking at a high heat and the sweet fragrance given off when cooking (due to increased amino acids) can be appreciated by the diners seated around the teppan.

Example dishes:
Seven Course Wagyu Lunch Menu: £17.30
Seven course Wagyu Steak Set Menu: £67.00
Wagyu Heaven (Wagyu, Foie Gras and Truffle Oil): £4.80

The marbling:
Wagyu Beef has an unusually large amount of marbling that leads to its superior taste and tenderness. The beef is also naturally healthier as research shows that the beef from Wagyu cattle contain more Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids as well as more monounsaturated fatty acids (the good fat) than other beef. The percentage of fatty acids affect the texture of food particularly in meats and it is for this reason that Wagyu beef is regarded as the finest, most exclusive beef produced in the world.

A tasting dinner at the Chelsea branch will be hosted on February 9th.

If you would like further information on the tasting at Benihana please do not hesitate to contact Krista Booker

Benihana 50th Anniversary Wagyu Beef Menu

Wagyu Beef

Benihana opened their first restaurant 50 years ago and to commemorate the occasion by offering a promotional menu that celebrates both the lifting of the import ban on Japanese Wagyu and Benihana’s unique heritage.

The 50th Anniversary Wagyu menu begins with the traditional starters of Onion Soup and Salad followed by Sushi, Tempura and the classic Prawn Appetiser, Courgettes, Onion Volcano and Hibachi Rice.

Diners are then served Wagyu known around the word for its sweet aroma and rich flavour. The Benihana style of cooking suits Wagyu beef very well as the marbling benefits from swift cooking at a high heat and the sweet fragrance given off when cooking (due to increased amino acids) can be appreciated by the diners seated around a Teppan.

The Wagyu can be compared with a dish of the Scottish Fillet or, at the diners preference, the Black Cod with Miso.

This ten-course meal is finished with an ice-cream dessert.

The price of the Benihana 50th Anniversary Wagyu menu is only £50 per person for a limited time to allow diners to experience Wagyu at an affordable price – before returning to the rrp of around £100 for the Wagyu alone.
