The BEST beef! What's your opinion?

I had my first Wago Beef Cheeseburger yesterday. It was, by far, the best I've eaten. Anyone else ever try Wago? Its a Japanese beef. The restaurant uses the same beef that sells for $75 a steak in New York.

Also, I couldn't find any, .....can anyone find a site online that has information about Wago Beef please?

Thanks!

Sorry barbourman, I have only ever heard of Kobe beef from Japan. Sorry I can't help, but welcome to the site!

Wago and Kobe are the same, I think.

Wagyu literally means Japanese cattle. Wagyu beef surpasses US standards for marbled beef, which is why it so good. Kobe beef is a type of Wagyu, it has to be produced in a specific manner to be Kobe beef. There are other types of Wagyu including Matsuzaka and Omi.

I think most men in this forum (and some of us ladies) would be quite happy to be reincarnated as Kobe cows (even though we'd get eaten eventually) as they are massaged with beer through their lifespan. Lucky cows.

I can think of things I would rather be massaged with. Beer is strictly for internal consumption.

As for the beef...I have a friend who recently returned from Japan, and says that Kobe beef is highly overrated. She prefers the home grown variety. That made me happy as I will likely never get to Japan and will always eat Alberta beef.

I would have to really disagree that it would make a better burger then a USDA prime strip burger.

The only way anyone could accurately say what beef tastes the best, is to do a taste test.
