EMBRACE a unique opportunity to taste Sanuki Wagyu, never before served in Ireland, at Amuse, on Dublin’s Dawson Street. This light, sweet beef, with a soft buttery texture, is due to the animal’s diet, which is rich in olives. The Sanuki Wagyu is offered as a supplement (€35) to Amuse’s signature lunch, dinner and “Paris to Tokyo” menus. Amuse, 22 Dawson Street, Dublin 2.
