Magosaburo Lunch Date

      For no specific reason except to try something new (and escape from our kids hehe), my husband and I tried out Magosaburo at the Fort for lunch. We love Japanese food and we've heard that they've got something different and good to offer so we decided to find out for ourselves. 
     We were set on trying the Japanese Wagyu steak, and opted for the Magosaburo Degustation (which they usually only offer for dinner but placed on the menu for lunch that day to take the place of the unavailable local wagyu then). It was a good thing though because it included the Lava Stone Japanese Sirloin Wagyu Steak together with other authentic Japanese dishes and actually came out cheaper than if we just ordered the Japanese Wagyu by itself. The Degustation was an 8-course offering and I enjoyed trying every single dish ;)

We had the Mixed Sashimi Salad apart from the Magosaburo Degustation but it didn't stop us from finishing each course. After the salad, we started off with a small appetizer of Iberico Ham, Cream Cheese Tofu and Strawberry (it was quite interesting). We had the assorted cold appetizer next (see photo below) and it came with a salad similar to what we already had (but I wasn't complaining because the salad was pretty good!). The Foie Gras Chawanmushi wasn't available that day so they replaced it with a seafood and mushroom version which I thought was really good and surprised my palate! I actually enjoyed this very unique dish. 

The Assorted Cold Appetizer, Garlic Butter Fry Scallop, Broccoli and Cauliflower and
our Mixed Sashimi Salad with Tomato Dressing.

And finally, here's the much awaited Japanese Sirloin Wagyu Steak which did not disappoint! It practically melted in our mouth :9 After cooking it in the lava stone, it was served together with lettuce leaves and wasabi sauce. You can either eat it as is or wrap it around the lettuce.

As if the steak wasn't enough, the Degustation also included a Japanese Style Chicken Rice in a Hot Stone Bowl. We were kinda full by the time it was served so we were pretty slow with eating it haha! We chose Matcha Ice Cream to go with the Philippine Mango Mousse and I had it with a Latte Nespresso Coffee.

We sealed off our yummy meal with a light, sweet and fruity Moscato white wine
compliments of the resto! It was the perfect ending to our meal :)
