– Gail & Jem
Wagyu Cube Steak – $28
G & J: This is part of their 1-for-1 menu, and while the portioning was small, it was reasonably priced for such a high-grade A4/5 Motobu waygu. The cubes were tender and grilled to perfection on a sizzling hotplate, and melted in our mouths. We liked how they were paired with capsicums and flat mushrooms for crunch and extra flavour.
Wagyu & Foie Gras – $28G & J: Pan-seared waygu steak with a slab of foie gras on top. We wish there were more foie gras! The steak slices were made easy to chew and flavourful with its finely-cut slices. The sauce is truffle teriyaki – though the teriyaki was more empowering than the truffle – and served with sweet potato chips. The chips were unique and added a nice touch to the dish.
— Based on the 1-for-1 mains promotion, we only paid $28 (the higher-priced dish) for the two above dishes. —
We have secured the 1-for-1 mains menu below for your perusal. The dishes listed below are all available for the promotion.
Soft-Shell Crab – $15.80G & J: We ordered one more side, deep-fried soft shell crab. The crab was quite meaty inside while crispy on the exterior. The serving portion was also quite generous. The dip was a little too tangy for our taste though!
