    I'm not sure if Pete had it easy or difficult. On one hand he hadn't ridden a bike in a long time and had to navigate with you using a paper map. On the other hand he only had to bike for one day and spent the remaining three living it up in Japan.

    I thought A in A5 meant quantity and the 5 is the quality. I usually eat A1 beef... at least that's what I think it is... least quality beef, but in American sized portions...

    For real, when you eat this you litteraly drink the meat you don't even chew...
    Can you imagine how digusting that is ?? like ...
    Beef and fat put in a blender still hot and fcking drink it.
    While you at it make a kobe beef and 90% fat candy .
    Just melt a stick of butter annd drink it, I just madeyou save 250 dollars, you sheep.
    Wtf is up with the meat rating that is completely stupid A5 god damn.
    Man, it's only fat.

    Dude, this beef have nothing special, it's only a fat lazy cow who was treated way too much.
    Come to France, ask for an AUBRAC medium rare and fcking tell me that is not better than that dumb shit...

    And guess what, why they serve a only 3 pîeces of that sht on one plate and they serve this right in front of you?
    because if the fat cooldown it fcking goes back to the consistence of a chewy dirty paper..
    the whole piece taste like that because the meat isn't meat , IT'S FAT , YOU ARE EATING FAT.

    250 DOLLARS
    10 GRAMME

    That’s not correct about wagyu beef all coming from Japan, a couple of years ago I saw in an agriculture paper that they, a Japanese company, started sourcing wagyu from Idaho. They have to follow very strict standards, and all of it monitored by the Japanese to make sure the quality is up standard

    • Obi DANK Kenobi

      It can be from anywhere but they have to meet the standards that's all. And it has to be that particular black cow.

    prob only 500-1k worth of meat but they charge the customer the price of a car so 10lbs is worth 3k but that hunk is prob heavier but maybe not since its 95% fat

    Me, First 5 seconds: "Is that Wakkoqu?" Looks at the description: "Oh nice!"
    I went to Wakkoqu myself in 2014. I wasn't using any sort of mobile maps back then because I was too cheap to get a WiFi hotspot when travelling, so I got lost, and no locals I asked knew of the place. I had to reorient myself with a static map, and it didn't help that I was already close to running late because I took the wrong shinkansen from Hiroshima.

    Anyway, that was the best meat I've ever had in my life. It's definitely something everyone should experience at least once in their life. I really want to go back one day.

    For anyone wondering. I'm sure that there's a very specific definition, but brackish is usually used in reference to a type of water where fresh water, and salt water meet and mix. Therefore, brackish water.

    This is why I like this channel when it comes to food; Other food review channels will do the "food pron" type thing where the descriptions and the glory shots go on and on - there is nothing wrong with that, but this gets down to business.
