Bring back the beef
NORTH Queensland Cowboys co-captain Matt Scott is ready to bring back the beef!
The solid forward will help launch Jupiters’ newest dining experience this week – the $2.5 million steakhouse Kōbe - and said he couldn’t wait to get his jaws around the feature ‘tomahawk’ dish.
“I’ve been following the restaurant’s progress with interest and to say my mouth is watering just at the sight of the menu is an understatement,” Scott said.
“That 1.6kg black angus tomahawk is a footballer’s dream dish.”
Jupiters Chief Operating Officer Will Keiler said he, along with the rest of the Jupiters team, couldn’t wait to finally see the doors swing open to the public for the grand opening on Friday.
“This restaurant has been two years in the making - from planning to opening - and we can’t wait to finally see it come to life,” Keiler said.
Pronounced ko-bay, the name is derived from the Japanese prefecture which raises the most sought after Wagyu class of cattle in the world, more commonly known as ‘Kōbe Beef’.
Mr Keiler said the name was chosen based on what the word had come to symbolise – premium quality.
“While the restaurant’s name might sound oriental, the menu has been designed to showcase an extensive premium quality beef selection as well as other contemporary culinary delights such as fresh seafood and vegetarian options,” Mr Keiler said.
Located in the hotel lobby directly above Aqua restaurant, Kōbe will represent a new destination in Townsville’s culinary scene and will trade for dinner seven nights and three days for lunch from Friday to Sunday.
Cowboys player Matt Scott will be enjoying a mouth-watering steak at Kōbe on Wednesday at 10am
