My guess is the "reporter" made a quick google search on Japanese beef imports (Which were banned from some places around Fukushima because of radiation scares and in April all other places because of hoof and mouth. A few weeks ago we started to import Japanese beef again as both of these issues are subsided.

Saw that Japanese beef was now legal, let the restaurant guy say that he had Kobe beef, and left it at that.

It's American or maybe Australian Kobe style Waygu.

Cythraul: I wonder if Kobe beef really is that good? With all the hype surrounding it, if I were to ever have the pleasure of masticating on a piece of Kobe beef, I would expect it to taste like chewing on corporeal bliss.


It isn't. Had some in Japan and it tasted like any other good cut of meat.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: cig-mkr: I'll wait until they import some good beef from China.
And it will be cheaper too.

So basically what you're saying is, the Chinese can do for beef what they did for rubber dogshiat out of Hong Kong?

/talk to me goose.


Why sure they can, look how real the rubber dogshait looks.
And while it may contain a little lead and some other toxins, you won't really be able to taste it.
Bonus, It will be sold at your local WalMart.

bdub77: RexTalionis: I thought Japan also doesn't allow export of true Kobe beef? How the hell would they be able to bring it here?

FTA: "The new steak dish at Old Homestead is so expensive because it is a rare cut of real Japanese Kobe beef, which had been banned for sale in the US until recently."


That's interesting, however how'd it get here? You know, as the guys that make it haven't sent any:

I sincerely doubt, unless you're one of those apparently plentiful people who think spending money is the same as getting quality.
