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.

as far as a line to be drawn ... best avoid eating anything with a face , as a face can show emotion , that of course includes fish , as to woodlice etc. why have to kill them what harm have they done you? just pick them up as with all insects and put them somewhere else , people have always taken the micky out of vegetarians called us names , and think all we eat is cheese salad , if vegan they get it even worse ,I would like to see a photo of any good quality restaurant offering new season isle of wight Vegetables and fruit ,Horse and Dog are common on the menu in some countries even Cat ,

David,Those baby lambs that children love, do you think there would be any in the fields if the farmer wasn't going to slaughter them? They and other cattle are not kept as pets you know!

I am against rearing animals just to kill them (think of all those lovely baby lambs that the children love) - also feeding animals with grain which could be used to provide food for the starving on this planet.I hope you enjoy your lamb cutlet

Where do vegetarians draw the line? Would you eat fish? Shellfish? Or are you against killing any animal for food?And what would you do it your home suffered an infestation? Is it OK to kill lice, fleas, mice, etc? What would you do if you got head lice?
