Weekend Food Choices Week 29: A Delicious Way to Celebrate

I had this planned months ago, but because things got a little busy last week, i had almost forgotten to make reservations for our weekend dinner until the very last minute. I wanted to treat the family to delicious steak and so we headed to Eastwood


Good thing we still got a nice table at the House of Wagyu

I had eaten House of Wagyu’s Stone Grilled steak before but in the company of friends. I loved the steak so much that I told hubby I would definitely take him there.

Dinner started with drinks. Hubby and i ordered Four Seasons
not quite what we expected. It tasted like a banana shake more than anything and on the rim of my glass was one of the few fruits I don’t eat!! Mental note to self: when ordering four seasons, ask what fruits they put in their version of the drink! We should have just stuck with wine…

Fortunately, the drink was where my disappointment ended.

When you order stone grilled wagyu steak, it will be served with the soup of the day and sidings.

Asparagus soup
Nice and creamy. For hubby who doesn’t like asparagus, I was surprised he cleaned his bowl!

We ordered some greens and asked the chef to split the dish into 3.

This was simple but delightfully delicious! I wish I could make salad as good as this at home! The lettuce was fresh and crisp and the flavors of the dressing, cheese and other ingredients made such a wonderful salad!

Then came what we were all waiting for

beautiful wagyu cuts served on a hot (and I mean very hot) stone


Seasoned with just salt and pepper (you know it’s good meat when you don’t need to mask it with marinade, its good just the way it is).

The beautiful marbled steak was turned after less than a minute resulting in a lightly brown cut with a pink center. Just the way I like it.

If you like your steak medium rare like we do, remember to ask for a plate so that you can transfer your wagyu when you feel it has had enough heat to avoid overcooking your steak. The stone is so hot that it can still cook meat up until you finish dinner, so for those who like their meat well done, don’t fret, your meat will cook.

Juicy and tender pieces of wagyu…

delicious!

Dinner ended with coffee, berry panacota and crème brule

What a wonderful dinner it was!
