House of Wagyu
I can still remember the first time I stepped into the House of Wagyu. It happened last October 2011 and I was with one person, Joren, for our first anniversary. The ambiance was very tranquil and there was a hint of awkwardness in the air since we were the only people in the restaurant.
This time was different.
I was will eleven other people, Joren’s relatives, who kept the waiters on their feet. There was so much chatter in the air, I could hardly hear the person on the other side of the table. This time was more relaxing and much more homey but nothing beats that first taste of stone-grilled wagyu.
Whenever I’m with Joren’s family, I make him choose what I’m having. In this case I had whatever he was having, which was Rib Eye Grade 6 (Solo: 1900php.) The steak comes with a serving of the soup of the day and a choice between rice, fries or mashed potatoes. I had rice because I’m a hungry camper.
Soup of the Day: Pumpkin Soup
Coincidentally, this was also the soup of the day when Joren & I first ate at the restaurant. It was just as good as I first remembered it. Very creamy and flavorful. This is the probably the only way I’ll eat pumpkin.
Although most people would opt for a lighter side dish, I wanted rice. I love how the bits of wagyu beef are mixed in with the rice and garlic - heaven in my mouth! You don’t have to guess how big my appetite is when I’m able to eat that plus one slab of wagyu beef.
