EAT | Narisawa residency | Mandala Club

Wagyu feast | Bedrock Bar & Grill
Award-winning steak house Bedrock Bar & Grill shines a spotlight on Miyazaki Wagyu by Arita Ranch – known for its fine-grained, speckled marbling throughout the meat, which renders a buttery mouthfeel. Now available till April, as part of its 2023 World Meat Series, the premium Wagyu will be presented in a 5-course tasting menu ($158++) with an option to top-up $68++ for wine-pairing.
The tasting menu begins with the Cured Wagyu Beef Wrapped Oyster featuring a butter-poached Sakoshi oyster enveloped in a thin slice of soy-cured Wagyu beef rump. The second course follows with a Wagyu “Philly Cheesesteak” – a unique and modern take on the classic cheesy beef steak sandwich, created in the form of a moreish morsel. That’s followed by the 24-Hour Cooked Wagyu Burnt End, highlighting a mouth-watering Wagyu chuck rib roasted for 24 hours till tender. The fourth course is a juicy, applewood fire grilled Rump Cap Wagyu Steak served alongside pan-seared Hokkaido scallops skewered with rosemary sprigs and basted in fragrant thyme butter. For dessert, end off with Hazelnut Chocolate Gateau made with 66% Valrhona Dark Chocolate Noir, and topped with delicate brittle, toasted hazelnuts, and fresh raspberry.
Bedrock procures Miyazaki Wagyu directly from Arita Ranch, which ensures traceability; knowing that the delicacy is sourced from a single farm that raises Japanese Black cattle in the Miyazaki prefecture, so every cut presented at the restaurant is of consistent, top quality. Possessing over 60 years of knowledge and experience in cattle farming, Arita Ranch’s veteran cattlemen further elevate the premium quality of this prized beef through a farming method called EM0 (Earth Medicine 0) that rears their cattle without the use of medicines and antibiotics in the feed, pastures, and water. These factors, along with a specially curated feed mixture, contribute to enriching the beef's umami flavour and tender marbling.
