Our team absolutely loves their aged Wagyu rump. This 240-day-aged Japanese beef boasts intricate marbling and offers an immense richness with a buttery aftertaste.

The lemon’s zesty notes provide a refreshing contrast to the beef’s richness. Meanwhile, the mustard seeds contribute a gentle, aromatic heat.
