When we consider Wagyu beef, hefty value tags have a tendency to come back to thoughts.
But a quick meals joint in Portsmouth is promoting Wagyu in a totally new approach.
Wagyu Bros – which opened just some weeks in the past – is run by brothers Yousef and Ashram Ali, and the pair at the moment are promoting the ‘UK’s first’ Wagyu doner kebab on Fridays and Saturdays.
What’s extra, they spent 18 months perfecting the distinctive recipe.
Available for simply £20, clients can take pleasure in 300g of Wagyu beef, whereas £15 will get 200g – so it’s an extremely affordable deal for the luxurious ingredient (which often is available in at round £200 a kilo).
Yousef Ali, 26, says: ‘Me and my brother are both foodies, we like to experiment with high-quality ingredients at home and turned it into something we want to serve the public because it was just too good. We wanted to go and do fast food, but the difference of using premium Wagyu beef.’
The Wagyu kebab has been a year-and-a-half within the making, with a number of style testing.
The brothers add that it takes them round 4 hours to arrange it.
Yousef continues: ‘We have a 15kg doner every Friday and Saturday and that is all we sell for the day so it’s utterly contemporary, so that you’re not getting yesterday’s kebab. We simply use Wagyu, there are not any different components, and the one factor that we season it with is salt. So it’s you’re getting 100% meat.
‘The taste is very different to the kebab that we’re all used to, it tastes like precise meat with no aftertaste, and even the fats that comes off is a clear color.
‘One of our chefs is very experienced in kebab shops, and he’s by no means seen the fats fairly prefer it.
‘People that are not aware of Wagyu might think the prices are a bit extortionate, but for a foodie that knows what Wagyu beef is, it’s the best high quality cow you may get. They perceive that that is as inexpensive as we might make it.’
Despite opening simply weeks in the past, clients have already travelled from everywhere in the nation – together with from Leeds, Brighton, London and Birmingham – to attempt the distinctive dish.
One buyer, 24-year-old Bilal Ahmed, journeyed from London for the doner kebab – after seeing it on social media.
He mentioned: ‘I saw it on Instagram and I really wanted to try it out because I like doner kebabs and I’ve by no means heard of it earlier than.
‘I really enjoyed it, it’s only a disgrace that I’m not native to me in any other case I might have had it extra typically.’
