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.
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
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.
