Japanese wagyu steaks in chicago?

mountsac | Aug 10, 2009 11:55 PM

I have tried the American Wagyu steaks from Saloon and Yoshi's Cafe. I thought the one at Saloon was underwhelming, but the one at Yoshi's Cafe was very tender, but certainly not to the level of "melt in your mouth" tender as what I have read from people who have tried the real thing.

Where in Chicago can you get real Japanese Wagyu steaks? I have heard mixed reviews from Ajasteak's version, which is 18 dollars per oz. When I went to TRU last time, I also saw it on their menu - but it was much more expensive than the one in Ajasteaks (around $26 per oz I think) - and I didn't try it that time. Any idea on the quality of those Wagyu steaks or where else I may have luck?
