When referring to Wagyu, not many Vietnamese diners know about Miyazakigyu – the Olympic Wagyu Champion for 20 years in a row. IKKA Wagyu Yakiniku restaurant in Hanoi is a pioneer in providing culinary experiences with this premium beef.
Miyazakigyu, or Wagyu Miyazaki beef, is a famous brand for Wagyu cattle farms in the Miyazaki region of southern Japan. For 20 years in a row, Miyazakigyu won the Champion position at the World Wagyu Olympics. Prestigious contest is held to find the best Wagyu meat.
With limited meat output exploited from livestock farms, Miyazakigyu is very “picky” about distributors in markets outside Japan. Therefore, diners in Vietnam have not had much access to Miyazakigyu.
In recent years, Wagyu beef (Japanese black beef) has been welcomed by the Vietnamese market as a premium, nutritious and healthy food.
