I choose you! House of Wagyu!



House of Wagyu: Entrance

Celebrating our fourth year anniversary a month in advance, and also since I've lost the bet who will shed 5lbs first, Mushy and I went to celebrate at the House of Wagyu located at the fifth floor of the Podium.

Entering the establishment, you can immediately see a big chiller containing most if not all of their uncut steak.

Inside, you can feel the level of exclusivity of a fine dining restaurant. The ambiance is indeed good for special date occasions. ^__^

House of Wagyu: Different kinds of steak
Immediately after being seated, the attentive waiters presented us with the different selection of steaks we can order. We ordered a grade 8: rib eye and a grade 8 tenderloin. According to different sources from google, the higher the grade, the more (healthy) fat content, which attributes to the melt in mouth experience.

As entree to the wagyu experience, they serve the soup of the day, in this case, the spinach soup and an unlimited serving of bread and butter. The soup was delicious for me since i love creamy based soups. (I also love the soup/bread model. =P)

after the entree, the waiter will ask if you are ready with the main course and will politely put on your steak bib (a first for me).

the slab of steak was served a top a hot slab of stone. The rib eye was cooked medium well while the tenderloin was medium. Also, there is unlimited serving of side dishes which we almost ignored since all our focus was on the steak.

since it was our first time eating steak without a sauce, the waiter instructed us to put the steak in a plate, called a 'resting plate', and slice it there and only grill the parts you are about to eat. If i have known this i would've ask them to give it to me raw, so i could have savored the raw experience.

with only salt as spice, it was time for a taste test, the meat was indeed flavorful and the rumors of melt in your mouth steak was true! No words could truly explain how good the steak was so I'll let my model elaborate it through a thousand words.

Alas! all things must end so we finished our dinner with a full stomach, an empty wallet and a smile on our face. The food was great, the service was splendid, the price is only for special occasions. :))
