Kobe is produced solely in Kobe City, Hyogo prefecture, Japan. Its unmatched luxurious flavor and texture produced through a highly meticulous and arduous process makes it the world’s rarest and most sought-after cattle meat in the world. Kobe beef requires a pure lineage of Tajima-gyu breed cattle born and raised in Hyogo prefecture, which feeds on the local water and grass its entire life. It must be a bull or virgin cow, processed in a Hyogo slaughterhouse and must pass a stringent government grading exam reaching a minimum BMS (beef marble score) of six or higher. To ensure authenticity, the store or restaurant must carry the certification with the 10-digit identification number determining which particular Tajima-gyu cow it came from.

Nobu Manila is open for dinner from 6 to 10 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays and 6 to 11 p.m. Fridays to Sundays.
