Brass & Knuckle has announced the imminent release of potentially the most high-end burger Malta has ever seen – a burger made from 200 grams of 100% Japanese Wagyu Kobe beef. The price tag? €49.50.

The restaurant is known for being one of the establishments at the forefront of the new high-end butcher trend that has swept the nation, and our readers have also nominated them as one of the best places to get a steak in Malta. 

It's not just a burger. It's a Wagyu Kobe beef burger.

There's probably only one thing that's good enough to make a burger cost as much as your entire weekend budget, and that's Wagyu Kobe beef.

It's not just the name that's fancy, everything about Wagyu Kobe beef is dripping with richness. It's the superstar of meat in today’s marketplace because of its insanely dense marbling which gives it an extraordinary depth of flavour. It's the most tender, most succulent and best tasting beef you'll probably ever taste. So having it in burger format – pretty damn sweet.

It's the caviar of meats

Wagyu is actually the name for a Japanese cow - probably the most high-profile cow in the world. It comes from a direct, traceable and pure bloodline – it's a pure cow, and is typically bred for upward of 30 months to ensure a slow and even distribution of its fat. 

Also, some people believe that Wagyu cows drink beer and get massages.

Ordering your Wagyu Kobe burger

After sushi and ramen, Wagyu beef is the main culinary reason people visit Japan. So €49.50 vs buying a trip to Asia is a small price to pay for arguably the best meat you'll taste in your life.

Just make sure you practice making your order before you go. 

Keep an eye out for more updates on the Brass & Knuckle Facebook page. You'll find all the info you need to make a booking there too.
