On the subject of foods, I'd been looking for some time for a place to get good Wagyu beef, or just consistent prime-grade beef in general, and I believe I finally found it.
Seriously, these guys are awesome. I picked up some of their different cuts for a big, game day cookout (we do this during football season), trying out what they had. We had:
Grass-fed New Zealand ribeyes & fillets,
Wagyu ribeyes, fillets, & strips,
and Bison ribeyes & fillets.
The Wagyu is advertised as "Kobe", it isn't Kobe. Sorry, the fat is not that buttery, but they are
fantastic, and ~half what you'd pay for actual Kobe. Most wouldn't notice it, unless they were served side-by-side, but I did. Still, a great "value" (comparatively).
The Bison was very good and a nice divergence from standard beef. It had a richer flavor without being "gamey". Some thought it wasn't quite tender enough, but I enjoyed. The criticism probably came from it having a lower fat content (less than half the fat of beef). If you want a high protein, low fat alternative, but still want a beefy texture, bison is the way to go.
I saved the best for last. No, the NZ prime beef wasn't technically best, that goes to the Wagyu, but the value was really impressive. For the ribeyes, and these things are massive, weighing in at a colossal 24-26oz each
, the price rang in at right at $18 /lb. For USDA prime, grass-fed beef, that's a steal. Especially when you consider that overnight shipping is included in the price. One steak is enough for 2 people, unless you're the size of an NFL lineman, and the texture and flavor are really exceptional. These get my highest recommendation.
They truly blow anything from Omaha steaks and other such companies out of the water. It's local butcher shop cut and quality, at a lower price, delivered to your door. That's some meat that's tough to beat. Umm, figuratively speaking, of course.
