Yakiniku Yazawa Saigon

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

For true carnivores, A5 wagyu beef from Japanese black cattle is the holy grail of meat experiences. Exquisitely marbled to create a complex flavour profile and buttery texture, it’s vital that it is handled with care, singed over an open flame for just long enough to create the most delicate caramel crust while maintaining its soft pink middle. Step forward the team at Yakiniku Yazawa Saigon, where A5 wagyu is the only meat served and omakase menus feature it in more than seven different forms, including sushi. Although there are some non-meat options – tuna sushi, a platter of edible flowers, housemade pickles – this is a temple to all things beef and it’s probably best to leave your vegetarian pals at home. Unless they’ll be happy with a liquid meal: an impressive drinks list contains more than 70 wines and sakes.
