An exciting Wagyu-only pop-up restaurant is now open in North Texas. Called Wagyu Mania, the restaurant is popping up at Plano’s Mitsuwa Marketplace now through December 31. Diners can order dishes revolving around the premium marbled Japanese beef, like Wagyu sandwiches, burgers, sushi, and curry.

The Mitsuwa Marketplace pop-up is being co-organized by the Japanese External Trade Organization (JETRO). Diners will be able to buy Wagyu to take home as well. Waygu Mania will be open Friday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. until the end of the year within Mitsuwa Marketplace in Plano at 100 Legacy Drive.
