High-Quality Japanese Beef, of Superior Taste and Texture
The undisputed champion of gourmet cuisine in Gifu Prefecture can only be the top-class, high-quality Japanese beef of the Hida region – Hida beef. Steak or shabu-shabu made from this magnificently marbled beef is delicious to the point of extravagance, and grilled skewers sold at local stores are a great way to enjoy a cheap and tasty snack. Among the beef harvested from Japanese black cattle raised for a minimum of 14 months in Gifu Prefecture, only that which meets the highest standard can be called “Hida beef.” More specifically, in a classification system that ranks beef from Hida on a scale of 1 to 5, only that which is ranked as 3 or above is granted this illustrious title. Not just mouth-watering but visually striking as well, this beef sports a vivid hue, and is remarkably thin and soft. With not a shred of excess fat, the sublime sensation of Hida beef melting on your tongue will prove to be not easily forgotten.
