Wagyu buffets in Singapore


Wagyu beef is proof that fat isn’t always a bad thing. With its intense marbling, Wagyu comes with a melt-in-your-mouth texture, and it makes our mouths water just thinking about it. We’ve rounded up some Wagyu buffets in Singapore with free-flow Wagyu beef that you can relish to your heart’s content. 

Why is Wagyu beef so expensive?

wagyu-jinkkotsal

Wagyu beef is highly prized for its exceptional marbling, characterised by the distribution of intramuscular fat that gives the meat a luxurious, melt-in-your-mouth texture and rich flavour.

Originating from Japanese cattle breeds, particularly the renowned Japanese Black, Wagyu undergoes careful breeding and adheres to strict production standards, including a stress-free environment and specialised diets. The high demand for Wagyu beef, coupled with its limited supply and global reputation for premium quality, contributes to its status as one of the most sought-after and expensive types of beef in the world. Australia and the United States have also become leading Wagyu producers, though Japanese Wagyu is still the most expensive, hence costing more at these Wagyu buffets.

Wagyu grades explained

The grading of Wagyu beef in Japan is based on a combination of factors, with an emphasis on marbling, meat colour, firmness and texture, and the quality of fat.

Wagyu is usually given a letter grade, and a number grade, with A5 being the best quality there is. Alongside this, the Beef Marbling Standard (BMS) is a grading system used to evaluate the marbling in beef, particularly in the context of Japanese Wagyu. The BMS score ranges from 1 to 12, with higher scores indicating higher levels of marbling. Here’s a quick way to tell the difference between Wagyu grades so you know what you’re getting when you dine at any of these Wagyu buffets.

Grade BMS Score Range Characteristics
A5 8 – 12 Highest grade; exceptional marbling, superior colour and brightness, firm texture, and high-quality fat.
A4 6 – 8 High grade; excellent marbling, good colour and brightness, firm texture, and high-quality fat.
A3 4 – 6 Good grade; moderate to high marbling, acceptable colour and brightness, moderate texture, and quality fat.
B5 3 – 4 Below A grade; lower marbling, average colour and brightness, less firm texture, and lower-quality fat.
B4 2 – 3 Lower grade; minimal marbling, lower colour and brightness, soft texture, and lower-quality fat.
B3 1 – 2 Lowest grade; very little marbling, poor colour and brightness, soft texture, and low-quality fat.
