The Gyu Bar specializes in Wa-Oh beef from the Kumamoto prefecture.

Each cattle has been fed with a custom-blended diet of vegetables
The unique clean environment in Kumamoto and the farmers’ breeding techniques make for cuts that are balanced in marbling and meatiness, silky on the palate and which are nuanced in flavors depending on the various cuts of meats served.
The Gyu Bar purchases its cattle whole to allow for the availability of a good variety of different rare cuts such as the chateaubriand or misuji. The beef is air flown from Japan regularly, the meat is chilled and not frozen to ensure optimum flavors and textures of the meats are never compromised.
