Kobe Beef at Costco


Who woulda thunk it?

For $99.95 Costco will sell you two pounds of Kobe beef from Cuisine Solutions.

Nice price.

Should you happen to be in Japan and in the mood for Kobe beef (above) prepare to drop at least a couple hundred dollars a person — or more — for a meal at top restaurants like this.

Of course, some of the price differential between Costco and Kobe Renga–tei is due to the restaurant serving the real thing while Costco's offering the frozen American–raised version.

First Costco got into art by selling an original Picasso and now they're flogging Kobe beef: I say they're taking a cue from Google and will be satisfied with nothing less than total world domination.
