We went there without the kids to celebrate our dating anniversary. We had the Ito-wagyu (small), the wagyu tongue, and a long karubi beef plate, together w a horenso salad.
The wagyu was good value, because having stayed in Singapore for quite a while now, I realise that most restaurants serve aussie wagyu, which for me falls short compared to its Japanese counterpart. We had a good jap wagyu fix before but prices were quite steep.... this time through some Japanese friends' recommendations, we went to try it here. I must say that the wagyu is definitely the best I have tasted so far, and much better value! because the beef was of high quality, we requested for just salt to eat w it instead for their sweet dip. (a plus was, the Himalayan salt, so this restaurant bothers w the details after all!) it was just perfect! reminded me of the jap bbq we had in Sapporo! only we downed it with ASAHI Super Dry Draft Beer this time! I would say, that had also made its mark for me!
it was the first time I tried beef tongue, and because hubby is a wagyu fan, he insisted on the wagyu tongue....the staff gave us a dipping bowl of lemon juice for the tongue...I dunno why...but it sure worked the best (I tried combinations w salt and sauce too) so I think, beef tongue is added to my 'favourite food list'
Finally we had the karubi, cause we thought if ever we come to this restaurant, we can't be eating wagyu all the time right?! bringing my three kids would surely make my wallet 'super dry'! (they are all beef fans) so the staff suggested we try the long karubi. It was fantastic, the marbling was even and it cooked almost like the wagyu, very tender to the bite! it may even taste like wagyu for the non-seasoned diner.
Overall, its the best beef fix I had in sgp. I was recommended to go to the anchor point branch by a jap friend because of its homely feel, and the staff were very friendly....when I chatted w two of them, they said they have been around for years...(where do u go these days finding ppl who stay so long in one joint?!)
I would definitely come back w my brood! ......maybe we need 5 plates of long karubi!!!
