Niku Katsumata 肉勝又 is a hole in the wall restaurant along Duxton Road that carries a range of A4 Wagyu Beef. They recently launched one of the best value-for-money A4 Wagyu Beef Set(S$38) that comprises of 5 dishes.
The meal started off with 2 slices of Japanese Pork Prosciutto, followed by Homemade Kimchi and Marinated Sprouts. Chinese Cabbage Salad Topped with Umami Seaweed might looked rather mundane but it was rather refreshing and the Umami Seaweed proved itself worthy with its dry-plum-like texture and savoury notes.
A platter of 5 different parts of Premium A4 Wagyu Beef was served next, each individually barbecued over the smoke-less crystal glass by the chef himself. Thighs were my top pick since they literally melted in my mouth without much chewing effort. Do seek advice on which cut would taste their best in either their homemade ponzu sauce or salt!
Last but not least from the set would be the A4 Beef Curry that contained minced beef. It was definitely highly addictive despite its appearance. How could curry look appealing in the first place?
Besides the A4 Wagyu Beef Set, I got to try 2 other dishes as well. The Chef’s Special Appetiser (S$19) consisting of 3 spoonful of foodgasms. My favourite was the Uni (sea urchin) wrapped with A4 wagyu beef sashimi, gently brushed with shoyu. It was a total meltdown as I felt that both premium components fused easily together. The other two were Foie Gras & Caviar drizzled with truffle oil and marinated ikura.
The other dish was Tataki Wagyu (S$20) which was equally instagrammable since slices of medium rare looking wagyu were neatly piled against the rice in a circular fashion. Simply top up S$5 to enjoy premium ingredients such as uni, foie gras, ikura or caviar. (Basically all 4 ingredients for S$20 or you could even select 2 portions of eg. uni for S$10!)
