Kobe is the capital of Hyogo Prefecture. Wagyu ("Japanese Cattle") are renowned for flavor, tenderness, and fatty, well-marbled qualities enhanced by the traditional (and well guarded) methods of raising Kobe beef. Up until now Kobe beef was limited to use as steak and traditional Japanese dishes including shabu shabu and sukiyaki. The new Jody Maroni Kobe Beef Hot Dog is available at Jody Maroni’s Sausage Kingdoms in Venice Beach, Universal CityWalk, Cabazon Desert Hills and Camarillo Premium Outlets.
