Arguing on the Internet isn’t my thing but I’ll leave my closing statement. If he is sourcing it from one of 8 places in the US, then he is doing great! The closest are ones in NYC and long island.
A tiny fraction of Japanese a5 steak is kobe. The thing is there are no laws here so you can just call it what you want. I see kobe on EVERYTHING…even hotdogs. Furthermore, real a5 kobe is waaaay more than 6.80 per ounce
Without a doubt it’s some awesome a5 wagyu strain from another ranch. I’m sure it is well worth the price. Monmouth meats is awesome!
Stew, send me a private message if you have a restaurant. I’d love to come try some.
