By Crystal Hsu / Staff reporterRegent Taipei (台北晶華酒店), the flagship property of Regent Hotels & Resorts (晶華麗晶酒店集團), over the weekend wooed local diners with a luxury wagyu meal that it provided in collaboration with Japan’s Kakiyasu Group. Regent Taipei managing director Simon Wu (吳偉正) said that he is expecting an extra NT$5 million (US$170,068) in sales at its Japanese restaurant Mihan Honke (三燔本家) this month alone on the back of the collaboration. Regent Taipei capitalized on the trend with a luxury wagyu dining experience priced at NT$15,800 per person for a nine-course meal. Wagyu dishes will affirm Regent Taipei’s leadership in the local dining market, Wu said. Former president Lee Teng-hui (李登輝) has also invested in a project to produce Japanese-style beef using local cattle through experimental breeding techniques.
