Hello, fellow meat-lovers! We are back for another edition of EATSplorations here at HEAT in Edsa Shangri-La and this time we will be sharing with you a very meaty EATSperience. If Fridays are for Mad for Lobster, Saturdays at Heat are for the Wagyu-lovers out there. Yes, you can enjoy Wagyu All-You-Can at Mad for Wagyu in Edsa Shangri-La’s Heat. Together with Heat’s signature buffet spread, Saturday nights are made more special because of the variety of Wagyu beef dishes all over Heat. We won’t keep you waiting any longer so, join us as we share with you our EATSperience at Mad for Wagyu.
Beef, beef, beef and beef everywhere. From the props at the photo section, to the displays hanged and placed in the cafe, Heat made sure that diners get to have a taste of what Mad for Wagyu is all about. As we went around, Wagyu beef was present in all of the stations. Different techniques used to cook up a delectable Wagyu dish. Sounds good so far? Time to share about the wagyu dishes that filled our bellies.
Let’s get Mad for Wagyu!
Both the Wagyu Brisket and Wagyu Black Pepper were perfect with the Wagyu Fried Rice, as both had sauces that required a spoonful of rice in every bite. But our favorites were the Wagyu Buns and the Wagyu Black Pepper. Soft, warm buns filled with tender pieces of Wagyu mixed in a sweet and savory sauce similar to charsiu. As for the Wagyu Black Pepper, it had a good balance of flavors and the black pepper did not overpower the already flavorful beef.
We are just halfway there!
Wagyu beef in laksa? This definitely surprised us! The soup was creamy and it was not too spicy, which we liked. The tender Wagyu beef absorbed the flavor of the soup really well. Another dish that we loved was the Wagyu Cannelloni. The cannelloni pasta had a smooth and soft texture. And the white and red sauces had contrasting flavors yet it complemented each other well. The cannelloni pasta had a generous amount of Wagyu beef that we really enjoyed. In this round of beefy goodness, both the Wagyu Laksa and Wagyu Cannelloni happily made its way to our hungry bellies.
Last set of meatiness!
More beef dishes plus the carving station! Beautiful cuts of beef at the carving station, cooked according to your preference. Both the prime rib and rump steak were cooked to perfection. If you don’t like your beef red and bloody, you may ask them to cook it even further or just sear it for that added crust. The beef wellington was a favorite too. The beef remained moist and tender and the pastry was baked perfectly.
To maximize your EATSperience at Heat, aside from the already superb cooked beef dishes, the grilling station has something good to offer as well. The chilled seafood can also be enjoyed by having it grilled or cooked in garlic butter sauce. Don’t hesitate to request because Heat’s wonderful cooks will gladly do it for you. Pork and chicken skewers are readily available too at this station. So if you want to take a break from having beef, just head to this station and enjoy the offerings. The dessert station is also packed with local and international desserts to cleanse the palate after a night of unlimited Wagyu beef. As always, we had a really good time at Heat! From the food, to the atmosphere, and the service, everything was just impeccable. That’s it for this edition of EATSplorations! ‘Till next time!
