SINGAPORE—I would’ve wanted to eat at Mario Batali’s Mozza, seafood at Ming Kee, or chicken rice at Powsing, but it’s not so easy with the kids. Markus wanted to eat in the hotel with his yaya. Ben is easier, he will try anything and Jeroen of course will eat almost anywhere (except Max’s). So I found this sign at Ion Orchard and took a picture for Jeroen and convinced them to have dinner there.
Magosaburou, a high-end Japanese barbecue restaurant, just opened here last December 1, 2011. Lucky that we were able to walk in without a reservation.
Love the place setting
with the steak sauce, salt and lemon
On the menu: Wagyu T-born Porterhouse Steak
and Mangalican Pork Boston Butt
We settled for the more familiar stuff and started with three kinds of kimchi, which we loved. I had never tasted “posh” kimchi before
Not knowing what to order, we got this special platter with assorted beef
Ben and I loved ribeye, while Jeroen liked the Kurohana beef
My boys love to cook together
We had “special” Niigata rice, LOL
The scallops came like this
but seriously pale in comparison with the beef (read: sayang)
OK, here’s the most delicious thing I had: the thinly sliced Kurohana beef. Cooked well done, it taste like beef bacon from heaven
These shots are from the website
Take note our bill was mahalia jackson (SG$410 for three people) but should be less next time without the scallops and the beef sushi which weren’t that great.
Just for that I’m excited to grill again tonight in Makati.
Happy new year everyone!!
