Wagyu steak in Toronto?

Are there any places in Toronto that sell Wagyu steak? I tried it when I was in Japan and I really miss it now...

You mean a butcher or a restaurant?

Pusateri's carries Wagyu (at least they did last time I checked) and North 44 serves Wagyu steak but have a very limited number on hand.

This has been discussed before. Try searching for it.

I saw an advertisment for Wagyu steak at Mochizuki the other day. http://www.mochizuki.ca/

Sorry, no real details on price, nor have i tried it. Maybe you can give them a call and find out more.

It's been a few years since I had it there so you may be right. But IIRC, I don't think the steak was on their menu. I only found out about it when the server mentioned it to me. Probably not worth taking the risk of going there to find out you can't order it.

Oh my goodness!! I just came back from that place and bought a Waygu steak from there...Their Waygu is from Australia and the strip loin is going for $78/lb...I didn't know about this place but I found out about this place when I was flipping thru. a Chinese magazine this AM...I also took a photo of the steak...

I hope it's good ;)

Famu's @ J-Town ;) I asked the store owner if they will be getting Wagyu from Japan, but she's not gonna import them due to the cost...She quoted me something like $200/lb.

Otherwise, they get new Australian Wagyu every 2 to 4 weeks.

I wonder if Chris Ruth would be willing to cook it for ya for $20. I think this would be outstanding with their cooking process.
