Calling all devout foodies – we’ve found something to tickle your tastebuds.
This morning, Samurai Teppanyaki House at Hyde Park delivered some exciting news, announcing an exclusive event showcasing the world’s most expensive beef.
The delicacy is known as Kobe beef and refers to the meat from Japanese Tajima-gyu cows. This is a species that has maintained a pure bloodline dating back as early as 1615. Protecting its vintage lineage has also meant protecting its delicious taste, hence its costing of $850 per kilo.
The restaurant will become the ONLY one in the country to ever serve the delicate product. To obtain the meat, a restaurant must be registered with the Kobe Beef Distribution and Promotion Council.
Head chef of the Teppanyaki House, Clark Zhang, was determined to obtain the rare product as part of his philosophy of using the very best ingredients.
“Last year, when I was in Japan, I went to the wagyu auction place, and promised to our customers that I would bring the real Kobe to Adelaide in the future. Now, I’m delivering on that promise,” Zhang says.
This extravagant 10-course degustation will be accompanied with SA’s finest produce including Coffin Bay oysters, Moreton Bay bugs and eastern rock lobster, as well as premium wines from Yalumba.
Talk about a tasting feast.
This exclusive event will be held on October 10th at the Samurai Teppanyaki House at Hyde Park and there are only 40 tickets available, so you’ll need to get in quickly.
You can find the restaurant on 116 King William Rd.
