Kobe Beef is real Wagu (Japanese cows) beef made under Japanese law, and is currently the highest quality halal meat distributed by Middle East Fuji LLC in the UAE.
The average sales price of prime cuts is AED 1700 per kilogram.The meat is a delicacy renowned for its flavor, tenderness, and fatty, well-marbled texture. Kobe beef can be prepared as steak, sukiyaki, shabu shabu, sashimi, and teppanyaki which make it one of the best top brands.
“Wagyu” or Japanese cows are divided into four breeds – Japanese Black, Japanese Brown, Japanese Poll, and Japanese Shorthorn. Tajima-gyu cows from which Kobe beef comes from belong to the Japanese Black breed. From 7000 Tajima-gyu cattle only about 5000 of these cattle are certified as Kobe beef.
