Dharshan Munidasa’s flagship restaurant Nihonbashi celebrates its 23rd Anniversary by providing 30% off on all wagyu dishes on offer at the main restaurant from the 29th of June to the 31st of July 2018.
Revered by gourmands across the globe, wagyu or ‘Japanese cattle’ is probably the most flavourful beef in the world, due to its Intra Muscular Fat (IMF) and sweetness resulting from feed such as straw from Japanese Rice, which contributes to a higher level of umami and amami.
The unique feature of wagyu meat is the extensive marbling – white streaks of fat finely dispersed within the lean, which gives succulence, flavour and health benefits. The meat is tender and gives that ‘melt in the mouth’ texture.
Sadly, the name ‘Wagyu’ is increasingly being used to label meat that does not does not originate from Japan, but rather diluted through breeding in Australia and US.
To Dharshan, attempts at duplicating the purity of Wagyu is a cheap approach at manipulating the demand for a precious meat, which is why he launched the “Say No To Fake Wagyu” Campaign last year, to create awareness of the true origins of this regal beef.
By serving only Japanese wagyu for more than 20 years, Nihonbashi is preserving the heritage of a country with a revered food culture.
During the promotion diners can help themselves to Nihonbashi’s extensive range of Wagyu dishes such as the famous Sukiyaki and Shabu Shabu, as well as decadent Wagyu Steaks and Burgers.
