New Menu Item: Halal A5 Japanese Wagyu

As of 20 May 2022, Ryo Yakiniku has introduced a new menu item! Highly requested and incredibly sought after, Ryo Yakiniku will be serving halal A5 Japanese Wagyu for a limited time period only.

For the uninitiated, halal A5 Japanese Wagyu is a type of meat that's pretty hard to find. Wagyu, literally meaning ''Japanese cow'', is a name given to cattle developed over centuries in Japan. And A5 is one of the highest quality ratings awarded by the Japanese government for the meat! Now that's definitely going to be a meal that will be hard to beat 😋

Ryo Yakiniku's A5 wagyu specifically have been grown for up to 3 years (most beef takes 15 months) to about 700kg and fed with a high fibre diet of rice straw, maize and barley. The cows are so well cared for that they are raised in stress-free environments and brushed with stiff brushes to increase their blood circulation. The cows even have a birth certificate that identifies their bloodline!

All this care creates beef that brings about smooth velvety textures, juicy flavours and rich tastes all in one bite. The meat even contains healthy unsaturated fats like Omega 3 and Omega 6. I know, even we're intrigued! And with Ryo Yakiniku serving this for a limited time only, we're going to have to rush down to get some. You're not going to want to miss out on this!

Plus, since it's located only 10 minutes away from Taiseng and Sembawang MRT, this halal Japanese Yakiniku place is definitely accessible for all, and its central locations mean everyone can get to them! You don't have to worry about travelling too far.
