Calling all meat lovers and fans of Japanese wagyu beef! This new place in town is sure to satisfy your cravings for beef — and not just any beef, but the coveted Japanese A5 wagyu. Farm-to-table restaurant Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg has arrived in Singapore, bringing with them premium cuts of A5 wagyu fresh from Japan cooked to perfection, all at pocket-friendly prices.
Prepared and served at a shocking speed, each hamburg piece that you order at Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg will be served charbroiled to perfection with mouth-watering blackened edges and a tender pink interior.
Each hamburg is freshly grinded in-house and hand-whacked to achieve its toothsome bouncy texture. Additionally, in order to create perfect soft, bouncy and juicy hamburgs, Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg makes sure that each piece adheres to their “Golden Ratio” of fat to meat. Apart from their juicy hamburgs, they also serve up buttery Japanese thick toasts in both sweet and savoury options.
From Farm To Table
Owned by the same folks behind Hong Kong’s beloved specialty yakiniku joint, Syohachi Yakiniku, Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg is a fast casual restaurant that prides itself in its farm-to-table concept — and for good reason. The brand holds an exclusive partnership with Japan’s award-winning Hidakami Ranch in the scenic Japanese prefecture of Miyagi-ken, allowing them access to exquisite cuts of Japanese A5 Wagyu beef.
Why Is A5 Wagyu Beef So Special?
Once you’ve tasted A5 beef, it’s hard to settle for anything less! From that velvety melt-in-your-mouth texture to that rich taste that lingers on your tongue, it’s no surprise that A5 wagyu has been crowned the king of all beef.
However, what exactly does that an A5 grade of beef mean? The Japanese certification can be broken down into two main components, namely the yield grade — which is the letter — and the quality grade, which makes up the number.
The yield grade determines how much usable meat was on the cow. As for the quality grade, it has several main categories that a cut is assessed on, including marbling, colour, texture, and quality of fat. A maximum grade of 5 in each category is necessary to achieve the A5 ranking, if even one category falls short of that, the cut is deemed grade 4 or below.
In addition to having to make the cut for all these various categories, each cut of meat is also put through the test by 3 professional graders in order to be assigned a grade. The graders themselves are stringently trained, with each receiving at least 2 years of training before they are considered proficient enough to rate Japanese wagyu.
This all goes to show just how much effort goes into making quality beef and just how exceptional a cut of beef must be to attain that prestigious A5 rating
Using only the most premium Japanese A5 Wagyu Beef that is imported directly from Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, you can expect to taste exceptional mesh-like marbling and rich meaty flavour in every bite at Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg.
