Just completed a phenomenal day trip Kobe, Japan — world’s most famous place to eat beef.
Yes, you should believe the hype about this place— no you shouldn’t come here and drop your life savings on a plate of beef. I’ll write some more about this later, but for now I mostly just can’t wait to share some of these beautiful beef photos. I’ve already teased a few out on the @bkkfatty instagram, so here’s 10 more from about 200 I took in the few hours in Kobe.
