Looking for Kobe beef and Green Tea Truffles - East Bay preferred

We are doing a Japanese dinner for a school event. We might grill a small portion of Kobe beef. Does anyone have a supplier in the East Bay? Also I've seen Earl Grey truffles but has anyone seen any truffles infused with Green Tea?
Thanks in advance.

  1. According to this story, Socola in Oakland makes green tea truffles:

    Does Cafe Rouge carry Kobe?

      No Kobe at Cafe Rouge I've ever seen. I've never seen real Kobe beef except in restaurants.

      I've seen Wagyu (domestic knockoff, sort of) at Andronico's and Trader Joe's.

        Wagyu refers to the cattle, both domestically and in Japan. Kobe refers to wagyu beef from Kobe, Japan. Its a misnomer.
