List of shops and restaurants where you can enjoy a variety of meats.
The Rumoi Area is home to a variety of delicious high-quality meats such as beef and mutton. Here we introduce shops which serve this meat and their original sauces.
Livestock industry of the Rumoi Area
A variety of livestock is raised in the Rumoi Area; dairy and beef ranching is focused in the north, each area in the sub-prefecture has their own niche of ranching and mutton is raised on Yagishiri island. 150 dairy farms maintain a total of about 15,000 milk cows which produce a collective 60,000 tons of milk a year. This is mostly packaged as milk or butter, but a variety of cheeses and sweets are also produced.
About 8,000 beef cattle are raised in this region. Obira beef, and also that of Teshio and Embetsu, have taken top awards at the National Japanese Beef Forum.
The head number of Haboro-cho Yagishiri Suffolk sheep is limited and most of the mutton is routed to urban restaurants as a high-quality commodity. However, locals can get a taste at the yearly Yagishiri Sheep Festival, at which the mutton is seared over briquettes. Yagishiri Suffolk is also served for a limited time at some of the restaurants in Haboro-cho.
Obira Black Japanese Beef is served at the yearly Obira Producers Festival, which is held yearly on the last Sunday in August.
We hope you have an opportunity to enjoy our local bounty at one of these regional events.
