Japan Yamagata Premium Wagyu Beef Yakiniku Set
Japan’s Yamagata Prefecture has an extreme temperature difference between summer and winter, and day and night; this climate contributes naturally to the slow growth of the cattle, and gives the meat a really fine, delicate texture and great fat distribution. What’s more, an abundance of snow water filtrates into the ground, creating many excellent water sources that facilitate the growth of healthy, high-quality wagyu cattle.
city’super’s Yamagata Wagyu is characterised by its sweet fatty oils and melt-in-your-mouth texture. It has beautiful marbling, and tender, delicate flesh that is delightfully juicy. The rarest and most premium variety of Yamagata Wagyu is Otome Ushi cattle, or “maiden cows”, which are between 30 to 32 months old. The marbling is particularly delicate, and the flesh is exceptionally tender, earning them the nickname of “The Queen of Black Wagyu”.
