Meat N’ Bone Newest Product Will Leave You Speechless
This just in. Meat N’ Bone’s newest product, Miyazaki-Gyu A5 Wagyu, is something you’ll want to get your hands on pronto.

A5 means this beef checks out big time. Meat N’ Bone describes its taste as “a creamy mouth-feel in each bite. It’s literally like tasting a cloud…a cloud of beef.” In that case, we’ll be floating right on over.
