News: Benihana launch Wagyu and Lobster lunch menu

This past year Lobster and Wagyu have captured the hearts and stomachs of many, so Benihana have launched a new lunch menu to prove that these luxuries can be affordable.

For £17.90 diners can order the new Lobster Vs Wagyu lunch menu that includes lobster or Wagyu. Served alongside miso soup, salad, seasonal starter (e.g. salmon ceviche), tempura, sushi and croquettes, this menu of outstanding value is available from noon until 3pm at Benihana Piccadilly and Benihana Chelsea.

Known for its quality Wagyu is often presumed to command a very high price, however this is now not the case as Benihana present the lunch menu so everyone can celebrate the taste of this fabulous tasting beef. The Benihana teppan style of cooking suits Wagyu perfectly as the marbling benefits from swift cooking at a high heat, and the sweet fragrance given off when cooking (due to increased amino acids) can be appreciated by the diners seated around the teppan.

Wagyu Beef has an unusually large amount of marbling that leads to its superior taste and tenderness. The beef is also naturally healthier as research shows that the beef from Wagyu cattle contain more Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, as well as more mono-unsaturated fatty acids (the good fat) than other beef. The percentage of fatty acids affect the texture of food particularly in meats and it is for this reason that Wagyu beef is regarded as the finest, most exclusive beef produced in the world.
