House of Wagyu Stone Grill has been in the Eastwood Mall for sometime now. It’s a very pricey restaurant, so my family tried avoiding it for months! Last 25 September, however, was an exception since my dad was to celebrate his 52nd the next day. Yes, my dad and Ondoy share the same birthday, so his 50th wasn’t one for the books, obviously.
So, he thought, why not splurge a little on the birthday celebrations this year? That’s exactly what we did.
Each one gets a cute bib like this one. I didn’t order steak, but I wore mine anyway.
Complimentary bread and butter were served as we waited for our orders. The bread was fresh and light, it went well with the rich and tasty butter. Remember not to stuff your face with bread, no matter how tempting it may be. The restaurant is known for its steaks, not its bread.
Oysters Rockefeller (P450) and Gambas (P275). Both very delicious! I don’t usually eat oysters because I’m too scared to suffer from an upset stomach (haha), but these were so appetizing. Also, I particularly enjoyed the Gambas’ sauce–a balanced mix of sweet and spicy.
Pumpkin Soup. I don’t know how much this costs as I don’t recall us ordering this dish at all. But anyway, this pumpkin soup was one of the best I’ve tasted ever ever ever. I finished this big bowl!
Alfredo con Funghi (P395). My brother and his girlfriend split this dish, so I wasn’t able to taste it. Looks like it tastes pretty good though. They were able to gobble this up immediately.
Grilled Prawns in Creamy Lemon Butter Sauce (P695). My order! This dish reminded me of HEAT’s perfect prawns. House of Wagyu’s is a close rival. This came with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables–a very simple meal, but it worked.
Steaks (P1850 and up). I can barely distinguish these pieces of meat, looking at them now. All you have to know is that they’re worth every peso. You cook them on these stone grills, cutting only the bit that you are to enjoy. The servers advise that you not cook the bits all at once as the meat will toughen up.
The steaks came with a veggie and potato platter. Nothing special really, just plain old, boring vegetables.
Their House Blended Tea is one of the best I’ve ever tasted. Definitely light years away from powdered iced tea. That’s all there is to say about this drink. Haha. :)
And since my dad was celebrating his birthday at that time, he got this free cheesecake, made of really good, slightly sour cake mix. My dad kept raving about it. (By the way, my dad’s name is Jody, not Joby. :|)
Our visit to House of Wagyu was delightful. We made sure to savour each dish.
Would we come back? Definitely! Not anytime soon though, as the dishes’ steep pricing should be kept in consideration. But as they say, you get what you pay for, right? I’m glad we got just that. :)
