I discovered this wagyu heaven through Joanna, my fellow Japanese beef, sashimi,
Brown Butter cakes lover
Wagyu Japanese Beef is a tiny shop that sells premium Japanese beef and organic pork.
This place is serious about its meat. Look at this beauty that is Japanese A5 Wagyu Sirloin.
I've never seen such sultry beef in Manila before.
They pack it in nice boxes, too, making it perfect for gifts to carnivorous friends. AHEM!!!
Best part is, you can enjoy the dope right inside the shop. There are about 20 seats only
so I highly recommend calling ahead to book a table.
Situation on a Saturday night. There were quite a few walk-ins, too.
I do not know about Mr. Uy, but this was one of the best meals I've had in Manila this 2014.
There was nothing fancy about the preparation or the presentation, just premium ingredients cooked simply to let the quality shine.
And boy, did the Japanese beef shine brighter than a freakin' shooting star!
But first, you MUST also order this Pork Cold Syabu Salad with sesame dressing and real
sesame seeds! It's no Kewpie. Do not get me wrong, I love Kewpie dressings and mayo,
but this sesame sauce is the real deal. A great starter which can also double as a
side dish when all that beef becomes too rich to handle (if there is even such a case).
The Wagyu Sashimi was good, but I prefer it cooked
This basket of Steamed Sirloin was incredibly tender. I hate to use "melt-in-your-mouth"
but there really is no other way to describe these melt-in-your-mouth slices. They really
melted in my mouth! Hahaha! JUST TRUST ME AND ORDER THIS!!!
AND THIS STONE GRILLED RIB EYE, TOO!!!
As tender as a newborn baby
Sprinkle with citrus salt, plum salt, or pepper salt to further enhance this out-of-body experience.
Stone Grilled Karubi
I realize I prefer chunky cubes instead of rectangles
Wagyu Japanese Beef can be little a bit pricey, but it is certainly much more economical
than flying all the way to Japan. I can attest to the quality of the beef.
The trick, really, is to eat faster than your friend.

He did finish all the Wagyu Croquettes.
I think someone needs a drink.
