Are you a fan of Japanese bento? Here we have a very specific kind of it since it is made of nine pounds of premium Japanese beef and recently it was rated as the highest-quality beef in all of Japan by the Wagyu Registry Association.
Premium wagyu beef from Tottori Prefecture is a meal in a form of a bento box stuffed with beef, sitting atop a ration of Tottori-grown Kinu Musume rice. You will see no vegetables in this picture, that’s for sure. One more thing that is premium besides its quality, it’s its price. While the usual price of a Japanese bento that you can buy in store is about 600 yen (US$5.35), Premium wagyu beef will cost you no more no less than 292,929 yen (US$2,615). What do you say about that?! Jaw-dropping, isn’t it, just like the pics of it look mouth-watering.
However, the size of it is not meant for one person, it is meant for sharing. The gigantic 60-centimeter (23.6-inch) box is made out of wood and the meet inside weighs roughly four kilograms (8.8 pounds). It can include a dipping sauce flavored with Tottori-grown pears and wasabi raised in the prefecture and meat part consists prime rib, tenderloin, sirloin tip, brisket, and the chuck tender. You’ll also get a few cuts that probably seem pretty exotic, such as the tongue and temple.
