Names different but the patties the same, that means same taste.

Better look for small eateries where they make grass fed gourmet burgers.

No cattle in Japan are fed grass. It's all corn, There's a reason why the meat is so marbled and unhealthy.

The plural of samurai is samurai.

Dairy cows in Nagano and Hokkaido are grass-fed.

Less than 5% of their diet is grass.

Understood @zichi 5:47pm but the moderator at time seems to have thought so @2:07pm: (“Back on topic please.”) - Perhaps you felt challenge since @DavidBrent made his first ‘swipe’ at Camembert and certain cholesterol consumers yesterday: @David Brent Jan 3 2:40pm: “It's cholesterol. …people eat it.” - Let’s face it: McDonald’s, while often tasty, is not really nutritious nor healthy in the long-term.

Marbling in beef is a good thing.

Indeed marbling in beef is a good thing, that's where the taste comes from.
