Washugyu tataki at Wada

The premium beef Wada serves is Japanese Wagyu crossed with American Black Angus; if only all diplomatic relations worked out this well. The beef isn’t buttery soft, the way the best Wagyu can be, but it still delivers beefy pleasure, quickly seared and dressed with grated radish, wasabi and ponzu.
