Happiness is a Wagyu Steak

September 7, 2008

I finally got around to trying Wagyu steak, the famous Japanese corn fed, heavily marbled stake that commands premium prices compared to regular beef.

Tender, sweet without being overboard, mouth watering, and not at all fatty, which considering how marbled the steak is was suprising.

I can say without any question that the piece of Wagyu I consumed last night at Radii was the best piece of steak I’ve had in my entire life.

The questions for me is: was it the steak alone or the cooking method as well, as Radii is regularly rated in the top ten Melbourne Restuarants?

I’m going to have to find some to cook to answer that question, although I’ve never seen it in the shops. Someone must have it somewhere…maybe a trip into town to the Victoria Markets might deliver some.

Naturally it isn’t cheap, but if you’re ever offered the opportunity to try it, don’t think twice about it.
