Available for Wagyu lunch and dinner omakase with price starts from S$118.00++ onwards.
We made a reservation for our birthday month celebration to go for Wagyu Lunch Omakase S$118.00++ and order add-ons for omakase menu. The menu consists of:
Somen with sea urchin & Hokkaido hairy crab
A cold and refreshing appetizer with sweetness from Hokkaido hairy crab mixed with sea urchin sauce.
Yakiniku – A5 Mizayaki Beef
Yakiniku done with A5 Mizayaki Beef that comes in three slices of beef in wasabi, Japanese leek and kimchi with cucumber. Each condiments brings out distinctive flavours especially my favourite Japanese leek. Well-marbled wagyu indeed and wish we can have more than three slices.
Sushi – A5 Hida Beef
One precious piece of A5 Hida Beef sushi that we went speechless after the first bite. Flavours burst in my mouth.
Sukiyaki-A5 Tochigi Beef
Next, Sukiyaki with A5 Tochigi Beef served with onsen egg, rice, soup and pickles. We were told to enjoy the flavour profile of the sukiyaki beef before adding in the onsen egg. A good mix of onsen egg with the beef gives a nice touch and distinctive flavours.
The add-ons include Uni Rice, Hokkaido Hairy Crab, Yakiniku A5 Mizayaki Beef and Chateaubriand Sando with A5 Ohmi Beef. We were tempted to try sando and decided to order one set Chateaubriand Sando with A5 Ohmi Beef S$38.00++ to try. Two pieces of bite-size sando, which is just nice for two of us to enjoy it. Nicely executed sando with smooth melting-in-the-mouth texture and juicy flavour.
Overall lunch experience was delightful with attentive and knowledgeable staffs explaining each single dish. My friend was feeling cold, and they offered a shawl for her. Kudos to the team and would love to be back to try their other omakase menu. If you are looking for premium beef experience, I would recommend to give a try here.
