Wagyu Express, a newly opened Japanese restaurant in Tanjong Pagar district, they purchase and import entire cattle of Wagyu from Japan. Diners can enjoy the sophisticated taste of authentic Wagyu over Shiro Zumi ( 白炭, Japanese white charcoal).
Kimchi Mori ($10)
I didn’t expect to have Kimchi in a Japanese restaurant, but it turned out to be a good appetizer before we started our Wagyu feast. It comes with three types of Kimchi, Chinese cabbages fermented in a rich shrimp and oyster dashi, cucumbers and white radishes. I like the cucumbers kimchi the most simply because of its crunchiness.
Carrot Salad ($7)
The crunch carrot strips, red onions together with a sweet and sour dressing make up a great salad.
Wagyu Akami Mori ($33)
Consists of three types of lean wagyu, thigh, rump, and tonbi (chuck tender shoulder). We grilled the wagyu over shiro zumi (Japanese white charcoal). Out of the three cuts, I enjoyed the naka karubi the most, it is meltingly tender and juicy. It will definitely make me return.
Wagyu Jo Karubi Steak G Butter ($25)
The fat to meat ratio was just nice, every bite was well-balanced. The garlic butter and salt added one more layer of the dimension.
Buta Sirloin ($15)
The restaurant imports “Yume no Daichi” pork from Hokkaido, the fine-grained meat is succulent and silky smooth. We have been told that it contains a high concentration of oleic acid – that’s good for your cholesterol levels. So take more!
Originally a dish from the norther part of the Korean peninsula, the semi-translucent noodles, made from wheat flour and starch, it gives a uniquely chewy texture. It was served in a refreshing chilled soup, the cold Kimchi and charsiew are perfect toppings.
If you would like to experience the melt-in-mouth Hokkaido Wagyu with affordable price, come and try this newly opened restaurant by the folks behind Wagyu specialty restaurant Aburiya in Boat Quay and Robertson Quay.
