Taste of Fuji Wagyu Cross
Kobe is undoubtedly the king of beef, and the Japanese Wagyu comes in 2nd. Fuji Wagyu Cross is just below Japanese Wagyu. It has a less marbling pattern compare to Wagyu. However, Wagyu has a full flavour and the silky texture of lean meat, and it’s perfect for steak.
Kobe and Wagyu have an own grading system, e.g. A1 to A5, B1 to B5. It should apply to F1 Wagyu. The best quality of F1 is ranked B5. There is no A5 for those crossbred cattle. B5 Japanese F1 beef often refers to as better than A2 Wagyu. It has a more intense marbling pattern and softer.
