Wagyu is one of the most expensive meats in the world and there's a reason why. Owners of the Japanese cows that give us wagyu beef carefully breed them with special condition to ensure their meat has the perfect fat marbling which gives wagyu that buttery taste!
It's quite hard to find halal Japanese restaurants in Malaysia to get the taste of wagyu but fortunately, there are some restaurants that offer halal-certified wagyu beef. Check out these four restaurants located in Klang Valley that serve delicious wagyu beef!
7. Try Out One Of The Best Chinese Muslim Restaurants In KL
