Collaborated and Co-branded with Pat LaFrieda
This is a dream collaboration and co-brand with the legendary meat purveyor Pat LaFrieda. Wagyu beef patty is very difficult to make because its fat content melts when it is grilled. Pat LaFrieda Jr. took all these factors into consideration, selected the optimal cuts, calculated the blend ratio, and developed the best recipe that retains the Umami and flavor of Japanese Wagyu beef. This is the work of Pat LaFrieda Jr. who is known as the "King of Burger," and is produced by his skilled team!!

Secret about Pat’s burger
Famous for “chopped”, not ground meat, Pat La Frieda created more than 50 custom hamburger blends and is the mastermind behind such burgers. “Ground beef is the net result of actually grinding and mixing meat into a homogenous paste. Chopped beef is the art of mincing and mixing meat in a very fine manner while visually and texturally keeping the proteins and fats separated.”
