At this point of community quarantine, you and I have probably become food delivery pros. Our constant phone pals are the riders telling us they’re already by our doorstep with our order. You may probably be getting food delivery fatigue every once in a while, not knowing what to get next, getting tired of choosing, or maybe underwhelmed with how your meals would look like once you unbox and open up your orders. This is why this week’s chosen eats is quite the standout — this Wagyu Steak Bowl looks just as good as it tastes!
Gyūdon or Japanese beef bowls are pretty common, but to take it to a level to serve you premium beef – Wagyu in particular – is a such a treat to enjoy at home. The beef bowls of Ginza Gyu is probably the closest we can get to restaurant-quality gyudon we can enjoy at home that is hugely impressive in presentation and for your palate.
The bowl features succulent slices of perfectly cooked Japanese Wagyu sirloin on top of Sasanishinki chahan (Japanese fried rice). There’s also pickled ginger (gari) made in-house on your bowl with nori flakes, and wasabi salt on the side if you want an extra kick.
As quality goes, this is top notch, and the dish does have a premium price. You’re getting a quality beef bowl for P680. One can really appreciate that the restaurant quality was integrated in the dish. Additionally, the food carries well during delivery, so opening the package was not an unpleasant and messy experience.
It’s no surprise that the food is impressive, because Ginza Gyu has Hapag’s Chef Kevin Villarica as its head ninja. The chef is also backed by a team who has solid fine dining experience from his restaurant in Tagaytay. The proof is in the presentation, and yes, our palate. If you’re ordering the best beef, then it should be prepared and presented the best way, too!
Also on the Ginza Gyu menu are Kurobota, Grilled Salmon, and Black Tiger Prawn bowls. However, if you really want a special treat, go for their Wagyu beef bowls. Treat yourself to a better beef and better food delivery experience! You wouldn’t want to share your bowl because you’ll definitely empty it clean down to every last morsel of rice. If you’re hankering for beef big-time, you can get the Ginza Gyu Gang Tray good for 3 to 4 persons.
