Incredibly Rare Halal Kobe Beef Dinner in Osaka
Kobe beef is famous throughout the world for its legendary, juicy tenderness and flavor. However, Kobe beef that is halal is extremely rare, and only a handful of restaurants in the world offer this delicacy. If you're looking for halal Kobe beef, look no further than Nagomi!
Cows officially qualified as "Kobe" cows are therefore very rare, with only a few thousand being slaughtered per year. Among those cows, a tiny fraction--countable on one hand--are certified and processed as halal.
The meat served at Nagomi in Osaka, therefore, is extremely rare! If you get the chance to visit, don't pass it up!
The prices run from ¥22,000 for the 150 gram standard Kobe beef course, to ¥68,000 for the 300 gram sirloin and fillet course. The price might seem high, but considering that the typical cost of standard Kobe beef is already higher than any other kind of beef, it makes sense that the increased scarcity added by being certified as halal would make this beef so expensive.
