House of Wagyu: Premium Steaks That Melt in Your Mouth

If you're looking for steak that can stand on its own, you can't go wrong with House of Wagyu. Wagyu is premium beef known for its intense marbling that, when cooked, creates that melt-in-your-mouth feeling that's normally used to describe with chocolates.  If you're wondering what A5, grade 12 wagyu tastes like, then head over to House of Wagyu and choose from a variety of cuts. There's a good chance that what you order will be some of the best steak you'll ever have in your life.

The steaks are so good that you only need to season it with a bit of salt and pepper. The prices are a bit steep, but that's what you need to pay for a quality steak. For more information on wagyu and the grading system used, check out this article.

We tried the House of Wagyu experience for ourselves and here's what you can expect.

The place is a fine-dining restaurant, so you should expect dim lights and spectacular amazing service. The waiters were really friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. They even pulled up a chair for us when we arrived. 

It's the perfect place for intimate dinners if you're looking to impress that special someone. 

Dinner starts with warm soup and house bread that already comes with the steak. I had Kale and Spinach soup which was quite good. I liked the creaminess of the soup and it was great when paired with the house bread. It was nice to have something to chew on while waiting for the main event.

You're also served with some buttered vegetables and mashed potatoes to go with the steak. These definitely complement the steak well. I thought the mashed potato needed a bit more seasoning, but it was all good. 

The main event is definitely this huge 700g slab of T-Bone steak (Php 3550), one of House of Wagyu's two giant cuts. I mean, look at the marbling in that beautiful slab of meat. Unfortunately, we didn't get to try their grade 12 steaks this time but I'm quite happy with this since it's a bit more affordable.

House of Wagyu serves all their steaks in a sizzling hot stone grill and you can cook the steak to your preferred doneness. Just keep an eye on the steak so that you don't overcook it. If the stone grill isn't hot enough anymore, you can always ask the waiter for a replacement. 

I like my steak medium rare that's a bit pinkish-red in the middle (this photo is still a bit closer to rare though) so that it's still quite juicy when I bite into the meat. With steaks from House of Wagyu, feel free cook it all the way to well-done if you're not into rare steaks. I assure you, it would still melt in your mouth and taste amazing. 

Food Quality: 4.0
Service Quality: 5.0
Ambiance: 4.5

Overall Quality: 4.5

I suggest you try House of Wagyu at least once in your life (they do have promos once in a while so that it won't be as expensive) so that you have an idea what an amazing steak tastes like. Maybe it be a special occasion or you're just craving for good steak. It's definitely going to be one of the best steaks you'll ever have, so you do get what you pay for. 

I personally haven't tried the grade 12 Rib-Eye steak yet which explains the less than spectacular rating, but I'm hoping to order it one day. If their T-bone steak is any indication, then I can't wait to try it myself!
