World-famous beef to be served on Island

Jenny Stanton of Amabi restaurant.

AN ISLE of Wight restaurant will celebrate its first birthday by serving up a world-famous steak.

Basque-inspired Cowes restaurant Amabi claims it will be the first Island restaurant to offer Japanese wagyu beef, famously from cows which are fed on beer and massaged to ensure their meat is richly marbled, sweet and succulent.

Amabi has sourced the meat from a UK herd, the stock of which originates in Japan, and will sell the steaks at £28.95 each.

Owner Jenny Stanton said: "In the Basque Country they take steak very seriously, you buy it by the kilo and by the breed of beef. We are extremely proud to add wagyu alongside the Isle of Wight-reared beef we have on the menu. The breeding stock in the UK is very small so these steaks will be limited. We expect them to prove hugely popular."

Amabi will hold its first birthday party on Sunday with an auction in aid of the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust.
