Hi everyone! Have we got a special treat for this video today. The best beef we’ve ever had. Yes, it is better than kobe beef. Well, better than the kobe beef we had.
More on that: a friend of ours has argued against us. When he saw our Kobe beef video he knew, just from looking at the beef, that he could introduce us to better beef. He recommend we check out this restaurant with its epic epic beef as comparison.
Now even though this was really, really great beef, there are some kinds of Kobe that are supposedly. What we had in our Kobe beef video was lower grade Kobe beef. And that was mind blowing. But now we had high grade Akita beef. This was earth-shattering. I can’t imagine what better beef tastes like. Universe-imploding. We’ll see. If you wake up one day and there is nothing left of the universe, it might be because we ate something better than this. Just a heads up.
What makes this beef so special? According to their pamphlet, “Akita-gyu is Japanese black cattle which have been raise in Akita. To qualify as Akita-gyu, cattle must have been fed varying increments of rice, and their meat quality must rank 3 or above. This is possible for Akita, as it is known as the ‘Land of Rice'”. I also didn’t know if the grading of the cattle would really affect the taste but OMG I WAS SO UNINFORMED. At the end of the meal they even gave us an envelope with the certificate of the beef with ate so we could take it home. And stare at it with deep longing and fond memories.
We also took pictures of almost everything we ate, except for some things, like the Abalone, which was amazing but the picture couldn’t focus and we were impatient I’M SORRY! Plus…abalone kind of looks like…a throbbing vagina…ahem… But here’s a look at the rest of the meal, if you’d like!
So, we loved it here. If you’d like to check it for yourself and have possibly the best beef and best service of your life, you can check out Gomei’s Website.
It might seem pricey but this is a full course meal that took three hours to enjoy, so this is your full night’s entertainment. It had unbelievable butler level service. I’m talking, ninja refills of water and wine, helping you out of your chair, greeting you at the door. I had to put my camera bag on the ground to take out our equipment, and they came over with a napkin to put underneath the bag, our shoddy old camera bag. How thoughtful. We felt like royalty!
