Kuishinbo Yamanaka is a place where all lovers of meat, celebrities and other culinary professionals all flock to in search of the best and rarest cuts of famous brand beef such as Kobe Beef, Matsusaka Beef and Ohmi Beef.

Chef Yamanaka says “Delicious meat is not only about the marbling (of the fat). Additional important qualities to look at is its texture when touched, color and glossiness”.

While up until recent times the traditional beef culture of Japan only used heifers (female cattle who never gave birth) for its high-quality meat, most beef brands have moved away from this practice and uses vitamin-controlled cows in order to produce more quantity. Kuishinbo Yamanaka however, remains true and unwavering in this traditional practice to this day.

It is our hope that you have a new outlook on beef after experiencing the aroma, texture and umami of the beef served at Kuishinbo Yamanaka.
