Interesting read.

I don't recall ever eating anything advertised as "Kobe" beef, but will keep my eyes peeled for it on menus in the U.S. from now on.

Shady!

Marbling is good(provided the cow has tasty fats in it) and all, but I usually prefer more elderly tasting beef.

Wagyu is overpriced beyond reason anyways. The Central Market by my house has Wagyu NY Strip for $45/lb.

Huh. In 2002 I ate some "Kobe Beef" that my chef had brought back from Japan, along with various other exotic and high priced delicacies, so us line jockeys could grow a little bit. Was he faking me?! That bastard was a notorious drunk!

It was a good and informative article (all of them), but definitely had a sensationalistic aire to it to make it controversional & shocking, therefore marketable.
