Hamburger is no longer cheap and unhealthy food!

Hamburger is no longer cheap...
Have you already known that McDonald’s has added a new premium burger to its range featuring 100 per cent Australian-bred Wagyu beef? The Wagyu burger was debuted in Australian McDonald’s at approximately US$ 8.33. The Wagyu burger is sourced from Australian raise Wagyu cattle and being offered for a limited time only. The Wagyu beef patties are accompanied by bacon, caramelized onions, tomato, lettuce, cheese and a “tangy signature sauce.

Wagyu beef burgers have been trendy at more upscale restaurants that offer burgers around the globe. For the American consumers especially Millennials have been fascinated with fancy hamburgers. Milennials are, as you know, aged between 18 years old to mid 30s. It is expected that the sales of gourmet burger would be doubled in next five years or so.

Aside from Wagyu hamburger, McDonald’s has had a delayed start to use unfrozen meat compare that other burger chains have had a head-started to entertain fresh-food lovers. McDonald’s is starting unfrozen meat with Quarter Pounders and new burger called Archburger at a few select locations.

Here are a few burger chains that make the claim:

* In-N-Out Burger. The West Coast chain with a cult following says on its website that "we don’t freeze, pre-package or microwave our food. We make things the old-fashioned way."

* Five Guys. "There are no freezers in Five Guys locations, just coolers. Nothing is ever frozen," the company says on its website.

* Wendy's. The Ohio-based company claims it uses unfrozen beef, even once engaging in a Twitter feud with someone who challenged the claim.

* Shake Shack. The chain, founded by restaurateur Danny Meyer, says it uses unfrozen "100% all-natural Angus beef."

* Whataburger. The San Antonio-based company says "each and every Whataburger is made to order, right when it’s ordered, never frozen."

* Smashburger. The 10-year old chain, with restaurants in 32 states, says its patties are "never frozen, 100% certified Angus beef."

The United States has the largest number of burger-lovers. The annual per capita consumption of burger is as many as 30 compared to 24 of Australian. Those burger chains are expecting health conscious customers who spend more money on healthy hamburgers.

I have been expecting the next level for the burger chains would be providing Wagyu hamburgers or grass-fed hamburgers, and McDonald’s took this initiative to bring a brand new beef eating experience at fast food restaurant. McDonald’s plans to buy more than 280 metric tons of Wagyu beef from Queensland. There are bit of harsh comments on Wagyu burger introduction in terms of price and the flavor itself but I am hoping that this Wagyu hamburger will be replaced with my protein shake after work out as burgers always hit the spot!

Visiting Kyoto for Cherry blossom and Wagyu - Where should we go?

Visiting Kyoto for Cherry blos...
As the Easter Eggs and Baby Chicks symbolize Spring in the United States, in Japan, the Cherry Blossom is one of symbols that Springs has come.
Not only Japanese people eagerly await this time, but also foreign tourists definitely schedule a trip to see Japan’s famous cherry blossom.
There are two things to consider though – where and when to visit. There are many prime locations with a variety of features – some have the oldest trees, others the most trees, and some are close to historic areas or other sites of interest.

I would like to introduce some fantastic places to view Cherry Blossom in Kyoto this time as the best time to view it is just now! Don’t miss it! Additionally, I would like to mention the same world famous Wagyu restaurant in Kyoto as I believe the mouth-melting Wagyu after Cherry Blossom would make your day in Kyoto!

1. Ninnaji Temple

Ninnaji Temple is well known for its locally cultivated variety of late blooming cherry trees known as Omuro Cherry. The Omuro cherry trees tend to bloom about a week after the mainstream Somei Yoshino. There are several hundred trees of them located on the temple grounds.

2. To-ji
Cherry blossoms bloom on the grounds and are lit up at night, creating fantastic scenery. You would have fun to have two different experiences- a peaceful daytime visit and a night visit full of anticipation and excitement to see the illuminated cherry blossoms.

3. Kiyomizudera
There are quite a few cherry trees planted around the large balcony of Kiyomizudera, but the largest concentration of trees is located around the pond near the exit of the temple grounds.

4. Philosopher’s path
The Philosopher's Path is a pleasant path besides a canal that connects Ginkakuji (Silver Pavilion) with the vicinity of Nanzenji. It is lined by hundreds of cherry trees.

After fully enjoying yourself with the fantastic views of Cherry blossom, it is time to experience the aftertaste with Wagyu Beef! Here are some recommended spots!

Hafuu Honten
Hafuu Honten is a restaurant that has a very traditional Japanese atmosphere, and it has been ranked as one of the top local restaurants specializing in wagyu beef. The restaurant pairs delicious wagyu steak with succulent seafood to deliver an unforgettable culinary experience. The wagyu served at Hafuu comes straight from Kyushu and, more specifically, from the Kumamoto region. They serve roast beef, cut of sirloin, fillet of wagyu beef at restaurant. You can also order Wagyu cutlet sandwich to go. It is cooked to rare-temperature by deep frying.

Niku no Takumi Miyoshi

Miyoshi, located in the Gion area of Kyoto, is one of those restaurants you know will be delicious. Miyoshi is a kappo (fine dining at counter) restaurant that serves beef-themed dishes. They only use the finest quality beef (A5 wagyu from the best wagyu regions in Japan). All their beef comes with certificates.
Since they opened the restaurant in 2004, the chef have been challenging “Creation of Beef Dishes that you have never seen before” . “Kaiseki Cooking” is typically a traditional Japanese course meal, however Miyoshi is a unique restaurant that specializes in meat kaiseki courses. At Miyoshi you will order from a selection of courses separated by pricing ranging between 15,000 to 20,000 yen.
Some may think it is a little too expensive, but of course this also means you can expect a high-level wagyu dish that matches what you are paying.

While it has a very casual look to it, this restaurant, Otsuka, is the spot that is said to have that mythical meat/beef. This is the phantom wagyu beef, said to come from about only 80 cows per year. The Murasawa Beef. Unlike the Kobe Beef, or Matsuzaka Beef, which was branded by its location, the Murasawa Beef is a top rated beef that is named after the producer/owner. They have an English menu with pictures, making it easy to order. All steaks are served with a bowl of rice and a salad. When your order arrives on your table, you might ask yourself “is this what I ordered?” because the meal looks very simple and served on one tray, however, after a bite of the beef, you will be amazed with such mouth-melting wagyu. Price-wise, it is quite reasonable. The lunch dished are mostly between 1,000 and 2,000 yen.

Is Beef a healthy food for you?

Is Beef a healthy food for you?
A juicy hamburger or thick steak is a favorite for many meat-eaters but each can be high in fat and calories. Depending on what kinds of beef you choose, beef can play a healthy part in your diet. If you choose the right meat and eat in moderation, it will have a place in your healthy eating plan.

Beef is one of high protein food. Protein is a nutrient found throughout the body, including hair, nails, skin, bones and muscles. The amino acids in protein food work together to promote strong and healthy muscles. All beef cuts supply protein, but choosing the leanest cuts, such as top round, bottom round or top sirloin, are your healthiest choices. These cuts supply about 50 percent of your daily protein needs in a 3-ounce serving, but are considered the lowest in fat and calories.

According to the Harvard School of Public Health, you need 2.4 micrograms of vitamin B-12 every day. A 3-ounce serving of lean beef supplies 37 percent of your daily vitamin B-12 needs. One of the most important things that vitamin B-12 does is help turn your food into energy to fuel your body. Vitamin B-12 deficiencies can lead to memory problems, tingling in the arms and legs, disorientation and hallucinations. Adding lean beef to your diet can help you reach your daily vitamin B-12 needs.

Another key nutrient in beef is zinc. You need sufficient amounts in your daily diet because it helps support a healthy and strong immune system and also contributes to injury healing. A 3-ounce portion of lean beef supplies 39 percent of the zinc you need to consume each day. You get just as much zinc from lean cuts of beef, including top round and shoulder pot roast, so choose the meats with the least amount of fat to get the most nutritional benefit.

Beef contains a wealth of other vitamins and minerals that have an important place in your diet. A 3-ounce serving of lean beef supplies 14 percent of your daily iron needs. Iron enables your body to produce healthy red blood cells that can more efficiently transport oxygen throughout your system. Lean beef is also a good source of several B vitamins, including niacin and riboflavin, which help you get energy from the food you eat.

Glass-fed beef is better than Grain-fed beef
Cows do not naturally eat grain—in fact, it makes them ill. When animals are fattened on a heavy-starch grain diet, the normally healthy pH 7 in their systems drops to a highly acidic pH 4, leading to a fermentation bacteria that sickens the animal and requires antibiotics. Additionally, to speed up the fattening process, cattle are administered hormones. This further degrades the animal’s health.
However, truly natural grass- fed beef means the cattle are fed entirely on their mother’s milk and grass from birth to harvest. These cows have a normal pH 7 balance in their system, which contributes to a healthy fat balance of omega-3s, omega-6s, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). In short, if the cow is healthier, its meat is healthier, and you’ll be healthier.

Wagyu beef is healthier and naturally
Research shows that the beef from long-fed Wagyu cattle naturally contains more Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, as well as more monounsaturated fatty acids (the good fat) than other beef. The percentage of fatty acids affects the texture and “feel” of food in the mouth, particularly in meats. This is one of the genetic benefits of the Wagyu breed and one of the reasons why Wagyu beef is regarded as the finest, most exclusive beef produced in the world. According to research, the protein in Wagyu beef can help maintain muscle while burning fat as it increases oxygen intake, energy production, and metabolic rate. It also helps maintain cell membranes and increases the body’s production of good prostaglandins – an unsaturated fatty acid that controls smooth muscle contraction, blood pressure, inflammation, and ideal body temperature. Additionally, the increased Omegas 3 and 6 help transport and metabolize triglycerides and cholesterol. Studies have shown that a higher monounsaturated fatty acid in the diet is associated with lower cardio vascular disease.

Healthy diet with Kuroge Wagyu!

Healthy diet with Kuroge Wagyu!
Many of health conscious people avoid eating beef because they think it is unhealthy, however, good quality of beef such as Wagyu contain great heath benefits.

Kuroge Wagyu contains an abundance of nutrients. The main nutrient is carnitine. Over the past few years, carnitine has received tremendous interest from both professional athletes and sports enthusiasts as an aid for increasing energy and performance.
It is easy to take supplements including carnitine but those supplements are artificially made in the laboratories. The carnitine occurs naturally in Kuroge Wagyu, and it is especially called Acetyl L-Carnitine.

Prevention from Obesity, Heart Disease and possibly Dementia

Carnitine is important to the heart and helps convert fats to energy within the mitochondria — your cells’ energy factories. Carnitine is involved in metabolizing and using fats and oils in the body, as well as transporting fatty acids into muscle cells. Fatty acids are an important energy source for your muscles, which is why some sports nutritionists recommend carnitine to improve workouts. Clinicians recommend carnitine for heart disease like congestive heart failure, high cholesterol, abnormal heart rhythms, chronic fatigue and poor endurance, and muscle weakness.
Also carnitine may be beneficial in dementia. This includes activity at cholinergic neurons, membrane stabilization and enhancing mitochondrial function.
The synthesis of carnitine requires the presence of six different molecules. Two of them are amino acids — the chemical building blocks of proteins. The remaining four are iron, vitamin B6, niacin and vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid. For that, Kuroge Wagyu, especially innards contains all of molecules. Kuroge Wagyu offers you effective diet and especially good for senior people for their health.

Carnitine in Kuroge Wagyu is twice as much as other Wagyu

Carnitine is found primarily in the red meat, however, especially Kuroge Wagyu contains massive amount of carnitine in filet and top round parts. In general, the content of carnitine in Wagyu is about 1200mg/kg that is four times more than pork. In that sense, Wagyu itself contains significant amount of carnitine.
It is said Kuroge Wagyu especially cows that gave birth as well as the grass-fed ones have more carnitine contained, almost as twice as other wagyu..

Seeking the best Wagyu in Japan – Volume 6.

Seeking the bes...
Tajimagyu (Wagyu) – Tajima, Hyogo

Tajimaggyu is not as popular as Kobe beef but did you know those are basically the same, just different grading.
“TAJIMA USHI” is Black cattle that has been raised and fattened in Hyogo Prefecture which is bordered by the sea. “TAJIMAGYU” is the selected TAJIMA USHI that highly rated by Kobe Beef Marketing and Distribution Promotion Association.
Interestingly, in Japanese Chinese characters of “TAJIMA USHI” and “TAJIMAGYU” use the same wordings but technically speaking, there are two ways to read it.
Tajima cattle genetically strong and are highly prized as purebred seedstock cattle in the breeding of Wagyu cattle throughout Japan. They have also been used for crossbreeding, so many excellent Wagyu brands such as "Kobe beef", "Matsusaka beef" and "Omi beef" have inherited their genes.
Kobe beef is so-called Tajimagyu, but not all of Tajimagyu can be Kobe beef.

Kobe is as famous as Kobe beef. It has been known as one of sophisticated cities in Japan. “Tajima”, On the other hand, is only known a part of the wording of “Tajimagyu” though, it seems like there are lots of things to see and enjoy there.
Tajima Area faces Sea of Japan, and it is dotted with many mountains and waterfalls including magnificent San'in Kaigan Geopark, a member of World Geopark Network, and Mt. Hyounosen, the highest mountain in Hyogo. It snows heavily in the winter and there are some best ski resorts in western Japan. Also there are renowned Onsen resorts, such as Kinosaki Onsen, popular with 7 public outdoor baths, and Yumura Onsen, famous for hot water of 98℃ gushes from the springs. In addition, Tajima Area is famous for Zuwai Crab (snow crab caught in Sea of Japan) as well as Tajima Beef, origin of Kobe Beef.

Hyogo Park of the Oriental White Stork has been working to protect and breed 'Kounotori' Oriental white stork. Oriental stork is designated as the prefectural bird of Hyogo Prefecture. Toyooka City, where the park is located, was the Oriental stork’s last habitat in Japan. Since September 2005, the park started releasing storks into the wild. The park has an observatory where you can see storks up close.

Takeda Castle is built on a mountain 354m above sea level. Atop the mountain is a massive stone wall. The figure resembles the shape of a sleeping tiger. In autumn mornings when the weather is fine often fog occurs, and the castle wall appears to float on the clouds. The scenery of the sea of clouds is very impressive. This phenomenon has earned it a nickname of 'Castle in the Sky'.

And of course, Tajimagyu (Wagyu)! Luckily, most of restaurants reasonably offer Tajimagyu (Wagyu) in Tajima.
Here is the restaurant you should try!

Located within 5 minutes walking distance from Kinosaki Onsen Station . On the second floor of a Japanese Ryokan called “KOYADO-ENN” .
Service from one particular waiter who has lives in California a number of years speaks fluent English and Japanese.
Their Tajimagyu (Wagyu) was raised by a famous cattle farmer, “Ueda Chikusan” who produces “TAJIMA GURO” that particularly has the lower melting point. In general, the melting point of Kuroge Wagyu is 25 degree, but the Tajima guro melts at 12 degree. The fat melted at lower point is said that brings better flavor.

You can choose BBQ course, Sukiyaki course, Shabusyabu course or a la carte menu.

Koyado-Enn is, by the way, a cozy Inn and they have wonderful Spa, too.

Have you ever tried Akihabara when you visit Japan?

Have you ever tried Akihabar...
That town would never make you bored.

Have you ever tried Akihabara when you visit Japan? When you plan to travel Tokyo, you may consider visiting Meiji Shrine, Tokyo Tower or Asakusa. However, this town, Akihabara has lots of fun to see and do, and should be considered to visit!
Akihabara gained the nickname Akihabara Electric Town (Akihabara Denki Gai) shortly after World War II for being a major shopping center for household electronic goods and the post-war black market. Nowadays, Akihabara is considered by many to be an “otaku cultural center” and a shopping district for video games, anime, manga, and computer goods. Icons from popular anime and manga are displayed prominently on the shops in the area, and numerous maid cafés are found throughout the district.
Otaku means diehard fan or Mania for specific stuff. This town is used to be the “Sacred Otaku Place” only for Computer Mania. For example, if you want to create your own computer, you can have every part here in Akihabara to create your own computer by yourself!
The “Otaku” field (!) has been expanded to anime, Manda, Maid Café, so on, so on….

Here are at least the “5 things to do” in Akihabara.

1. Visiting a famous shrine ; Kanda Myojin Shrine

Kanda Myojin Shrine is located near Akihabara, enshrines three Gods: Daikokuten – the God of fruity harvest, Ebisu – the God of fishermen and businessmen’ successful, and Taira Masakado – a feudal lord who was deified since the 10th century. Tokyoites come here to pray for success in business, good health and happy marriage. There are large statues of the Shinto favorites Daikoku and Ebisu, as well as Taira-no-Masakado.

2. Walking around the electric town

As Akihabara is called as the “Electronic Town” you will see most of the stores here sell everything electrical.
One of the biggest buildings I would recommend you to come and explore is Yodobashi.

Hundreds of electronics shops, ranging from tiny one-man stalls specializing in a particular electronic component to large electronics retailers, line the main Chuo Dori street and the crowded side streets around Akihabara. They offer everything from the newest computers, cameras, televisions, mobile phones, electronics parts and home appliances to second-hand goods and electronic junk.
A few chain stores such as Sofmap and Laox each operate multiple specialized branches along the main roads, while small independent shops can be found in the side streets. The only mega sized store is the Yodobashi Camera complex on the east side of the station.

3. Going to Maid Café

Originated from Akihabara and have become one of Japan’s popular culture icon, Maid Cafes are themed cafe shops with the waiters or waitresses dress as butlers and maids, of course, based on that concept, customers of these Cafes will be treated like “master”. Although some of this cafes have spread to other locations throughout Japan but to enjoy the most out of it, Maid Cafes in Akihabara still in the top choices.

4. Shop anime goods at Mandarake

It is the biggest place for collectibles which consists of eight floors selling everything about anime, TV superheroes, characters and mascots, and manga comics, new and used. If you are a fan of any Japanese anime, manga, games, or movies, ANY entertainment idols as well as under any platform, this is a good place to visit. I’m sure you will see your favorites figures or watching people playing card games!

5. Eating Japanese food


A 5 minute walk from Akihabara Station on the JR Sobu, Yamanote and Keihintohoku lines, the Tsukuba Express line and the Tokyo Metro Hibiya line, Awajimachi Station on the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi line, Ogawamachi Station on the Tokyo Metro Toei Shinjuku line, and Kanda Station on the Tokyo Metro Ginza line.
It is “a must-go “wagyu” restaurant complex. It may not be a so-called Japanese cuisine restaurant, as it serves beef steaks and hamburger patties, which are thought to be western dishes, but in fact, as it features “wagyu”, or Japanese-produced beef, Mansei can be called a Japanese restaurant. Wagyu and hamburger patties have a good reputation, which draw lots of fans even from overseas.

Mansei Akihabara is a ten-storied restaurant complex which is located by the Mansei Bridge in Akihabara. It originally started as a butcher in 1949, and has kept its policy to serve high quality beef with at relatively affordable price. Now this building features different types of restaurants on each floor. For example, you can enjoy hamburger patties and beef steaks in a casual manner on the 3rd and 4th floors. I especially recommend “Mansei-hamburger steak set”, with the special demi-glace sauce which goes well with the juicy patty, it also comes with rice and ton-jiru (miso soup with pork and vegetables) at lunch time. Also, “teppan yaki set” (thinly sliced beef which is grilled on a hot plate) and “beef steak set” must be the ones you should keep in mind. All dishes come with a free fried egg before ordering 11:45.
If you have heard of “yakiniku” or Korean barbeque, and if you are more interested in the tender texture of the beef, Mansei-Bokujo, on the 5th floor is just for you. Or you would probably like to have some classy Japanese dishes like "sukiyaki" or "shabushabu", you can choose "Shichifukujin" on the 7th floor. You can enjoy traditional Japanese meat dishes while relaxing in the Japanese style interior. The unique one should be “Goetsu-doshu”, which is Izakaya style (Japanese pub) in the basement. It provides what we call “Drink bar” which is an all-we-can-drink system, but the one here is surprisingly “Sake-bar”.
I could say this building can meet your appetite according to your mood and budget. So try and enjoy meal before or after strolling around Akihabara. On the first floor, there is a souvenir shop, which sells “pork fillet cutlet sand” box. It’s a unique collaboration of soft fillet cutlet, sweet sauce and the soft bread, although it’s not wagyu, this item sells well here.

Enjoy !!
