CUT by Wolfgang Puck introduces exclusive Kagoshima bone-in craft wagyu

CUT by Wolfgang Puck, the only contemporary steak restaurant in Singapore crowned a Michelin star for six consecutive years, has recently expanded its selection of premium cuts to offer the exclusive, first-to-Singapore Kagoshima bone-in craft wagyu. Appealing to a new generation of environmentally conscious meat connoisseurs, craft wagyu is revered as the absolute pinnacle of Japan’s wagyu brand, as it is bred and raised in farms that fulfill five stringent conditions, namely creativity, regional community, animal welfare, family-owned, and technology.

Exclusively available at CUT in Singapore, this exceptional bone-in wagyu hails from Mizusako Farm, one of Japan’s largest family-owned craft wagyu farms. Located in Ibusuki, the southernmost part of Kyushu, Japan, the farm is blessed with a pristine environment and warm climate, allowing its cattle to grow freely with natural, mineral-rich spring water.

A rare breeding cattle derived from improved pedigrees from Amami Oshima Island in Kagoshima and Okinawa, the prized Kagoshima craft wagyu is highly regarded for its robust flavours, aroma, and marbling for consistent tenderness in every bite. Aligned with second-generation owner Meister Mizusako’s vision for “next-generation Wagyu”, the cattle feeds on a chemical-free diet of okara (beancurd), roasted soybeans, quality grains, sweet potatoes and local vegetables. This recycled feed is fermented using a microorganism-based technology with its own original koji (rice malt), to result in a well-balanced, flavourful red meat.

Grilled over glowing embers and apple wood, the luscious Kagoshima craft wagyu is available at CUT from S$450++ for an 800g ribeye (good for two pax).

For reservations, visit marinabaysands.com/restaurants/cut.html or call 6688 8517.
