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.
