Get your Wagyu on at En Grill & Bar

Was recently invited to En Grill & Bar to have a taste of their new menu, which features the award winning Motobu Wagyu beef as one of the main ingredients.

The place was relatively quiet and dimly lit; would say it’s great for get-togethers over drinks and food.

A little more about Motobu if you’ve never heard of it: it’s imported directly from the Yanbaru ranch in Okinawa. The cattle feed on a fermented feed, containing lactic acid bacterium and brewer’s grain obtained from Orion beer. (!!!) It’s supposed to be rich in dietary fibre, and boasts a higher 58 percent of unsaturated fatty acids compared to the 55 percent in general black Japanese beef.

But of course for those who aren’t die hard beef fans, En Grill & Bar has many other menu highlights too! Here’s a quick run through:

Tapas Highlights:

Garlic Gambas $16

Pan-fried shrimp with creamy butter sauce

Great one for prawn / shrimp lovers – the gambas goes well with the sweetness of the shrimps which were very succulent.

Tako Carpaccio $12

Sliced octopus and salmon roe with a drizzle of yuzu and truffle oil – yuzu and truffle oil, what’s not to love? It actually makes a good balance; the yuzu adds a needed zing to the dish.

Wagyu Mini Burger $16

Handground Motobu wagyu beef patty with red wine sauce – these were really juicy and tender and go great with beer.

Charcoal Grilled Highlights:

Sumiyaki Moriawase $25

Assorted grilled skewers offers a good variety if you’re feeling peckish.

Wagyu Yasai Stick $24

Motobu Wagyu with assorted veggies skewer 

The beef! Perfectly done. The sweetness of the grilled veggies balance out the gaminess.

Main Dish Highlights

Sunny Side-Up Hamburg $18

Handground wagyu beef patty topped with sunny side-up egg and red wine sauce – honestly, this dish was slightly average / got overshadowed by the other mains. But if you’re a fan of a simple sunny side-up, wedges and a good hamburger patty, this one’s for you.

Wagyu Houba Misayaki $28

Charcoal grilled Motobu Wagyu steak with miso on houba leaf – I love the honesty of this dish – it isn’t dressed up or marinated extensively, just damn good beef paired with simple, fresh produce. 

Wagyu Suji and Foie Gras $14.80

Braised Motobu Wagyu beef tendon with foie gras in miso – two of my favourite ingredients got married in this dish; foie gras and wagyu beef. (Bless these fatty animals) If you’re taking this alone it’s a tad too salty… would be perfect with rice!

Angel Hair Pasta $18.80

Cold angel hair pasta topped with sea urchin and salmon roe – again, appreciated the simplicity of this dish – the uni and roe are enough to lend the pasta sufficient flavour. 

For dessert, go for the Matcha Tiramisu ($7.80); En’s own green tea tiramisu which is rather light and comes with a serving of azuki.
