Beautifully mixed matcha tea is the perfect accompaniment. As matcha is rather bitter, a small candy to cancel out the tea's sharpness is suggested.
Just look at that marbling! This is how you can judge the quality of wagyu beef for Japanese standards. The marbling is the best indicator that it's top-notch, also it gives a slight sweetness to the meat that slowly comes out when you grill it on the teppan grill.
Watch on as the marbled beef gets a perfect sear by the trained chef. That sizzle though...
It really makes for a multi-sensorial experience because as soon as you hear the meat being seared on the pan, it is bound to make you salivate. Pavlovian much?
