I hate it when one of my favorite restaurants suddenly close without any notice. It felt worse than a break up text message. And Taylor Swift should definitely compose a song about this kind of heartbreak. One should be named "Buta Wagyu, Why You". Okay, perhaps that won't make it to Billboard's Top 100. But I was devastated when I found out that favorite wagyu restaurants closed. Then again, it gives me an opportunity to explore and find new loves. And I finally have a reason to visit Wagyu Japanese Beef in Forbestown.

Hello, Wagyu Japanese Beef.

This restaurant is popular in Makati and finally found another home in BGC.

I was greeted by a display of wagyu with beautiful marblings which happen to be available for take out for those who want to enjoy their wagyu at the comfort of their homes.

The place was empty when I got there around 7 p.m. and it made me worried that this place might face the same fate as Buta Wagyu. But given that this is its second branch, I figured that this might be better despite its more expensive meats.

Soon, R and his parents arrived and we ordered Ishiyaki-Stone Grilled Omi Tenderloin Beef (PHP2,045/100g), Wagyu Seiro-Steamed Omi Rib Eye Beef (PHP1,820/100g), and Sukiyaki (PHP3,900, default order of Rib Eye 200g).

Since we were the only ones during our visit, service was quick and our food was prepared before us in less than 15 minutes.

First served was sukiyaki which had a lovely sweet and salty broth. The thin slices of rib eye wagyu was great too.

However, I still prefer the sukiyaki from Umu of Dusit Thani. And for its price, I'd go with Izakaya Sensu's instead at less than half the price.

We were very excited to sink our teeth into the succulent meat and after having the staff prepare our meat "medium", we feasted on the rather pricey meat.

And it was good. But for some reason, it was not like Buta Wagyu. It didn't have the bite and flavor that we fell in love with. I figured that it must have been the cut of the wagyu. Instead of thinner and longer cuts, Wagyu Japanese Beef cut it into cubes which could have affected the texture of the beef after being grilled.

I liked that there were three kinds of salt to choose from though--lime, salt and pepper, and plum. I still prefer the classic salt and pepper best.

The steamed wagyu was served last and it was good as well. Some of us ate it with the leftover sukiyaki broth for more taste. But, again, it was a bit different from Buta Wagyu's version and it just made us miss our lost love.

Overall, it was a pleasant dining experience. The staff took care of us really well. Though it seemed that they were not use to bloggers taking photos of them preparing the meal as they don't like to pause a bit for a quick snapshot. Food was good too but it was just not as good as we expected. I heard though that its Makati branch offers better dishes and meats. I'll visit that one next and hopefully, it satisfies my wagyu cravings.

Expect to shed some tears when you dine here. First, because an order of 100g will set you back serious moolah 💱 Second, the meat is just so tender, it's easy to believe you've died and gone to heaven.

We had the Omi Rib-Eye and it was... heavenly 128514 It was so good we had to get another hundred g. Will probably try a cheaper variety for comparison next time. But I'm pretty sure I just found the new love of my life 128525

What makes wagyu beef different and better? I honestly don't know and have no idea (not a wagyu or steak expert). But one thing's for sure, we enjoyed our Steamed Wagyu. It was good but MAHAL! 128553128518 The beef was tender and oh so tasty even without the sauce. Serving size was generous with a lot of steamed veggies. But because of the price, we were hoping there were more beef. 128517

Premium and quality are the words that best describes the meat that is being served in this place. Due to the quality of meat being served it is pricey. Coming in hungry will set one guy back around P3000-P5000. The main menu is limited to stone grill, steamed and sukiyaki. There are four brands with four to five types of meat. Basic order is around 100g of meat. Service is good and quick unlike a different resto of the same kind.

The best steak I've ever had! 128523128525

The place is cozy, perfect place to relax and eat.

We had Grilled Omi Rib-Eye Steak as recommended by them.. Super pricey though but what do you expect. They got quality beef from Japan. Cooked depending on your preference. One of the owners gave us complimentary tataki and dessert too!!! What a welcome!. . 128077128077128077
