Wagyu X @ Club Street - The Rare Wagyu Crossbreed Available Chargrilled and Smoked in New Menu


Returning to Wagyu X on Club Street, I ventured to experience the exquisite Hokkaido wagyu crossbreed, renowned for its harmonious blend of Wagyu's buttery texture and Angus beef's robust flavour. Wagyu X has elevated their offerings with a new menu featuring beef chargrilled over binchotan charcoal and infused with the subtle, fruity essence of Sakura wood smoke, imparting delightful cherry notes to the dish.

Amuse Bouche

I began with the Amuse Bouche — a delicate ensemble of tender Wagyu slices enveloping enoki mushrooms. This prelude offered a tantalising preview of the exceptional quality and flavour awaiting me.

Wagyu Carpaccio 4.5/5

Following suit was the Wagyu Carpaccio ($42) — a sublime creation boasting paper-thin slices of wagyu adorned with a drizzle of truffle oil and garnished with arugula and parmesan chips. Each bite was a symphony of umami flavours, celebrating the purity of Wagyu in its most pristine form.

Chilled Truffle Somen 4/5

Introducing a refreshing starter to the menu, the Chilled Truffle Somen with Scallop ($26) presented a harmonious blend of flavours. Delicately tossed in truffle kombu sauce and garnished with ikura, this dish offered a delightful juxtaposition of textures and an irresistible burst of flavour.

Binchotan Flame Grilled Wagyu X Sirloin 4.5/5

The pièce de résistance arrived in the form of the Binchotan Flame Grilled Wagyu X Sirloin ($180/500g, $335/1kg) and Tenderloin ($135/250g, $245/500g) — showcasing the Wagyu's exquisite flavour profile. Charred to perfection over binchotan charcoal, this dish boasted a crispy exterior, revealing a succulent and flavourful interior.

Binchotan Flame Grilled Wagyu X Tenderloin 4.2/5

Delving into the tenderloin, I was met with bold, rich flavours and a substantial texture that left a lasting impression. However, upon savouring the striploin, I found myself drawn to its abundance of marbling, which contributed to a fuller flavour profile and a remarkably tender texture.

Horenso Gomaae (Spinach Salad) 3.8/5

Wagyu Fat Fries 4.5/5

Accompanying the main course were the Horenso Gomaae ($16) — a simple yet flavourful spinach salad—and the irresistible Wagyu Fat Fries, which proved to be irresistibly addictive with each crispy bite.

Wagyu Fried Rice 3.8/5

Initially conceived as a simple staff meal, the Wagyu Fried Rice ($28) has made its way onto the menu, boasting a unique twist. Cooked with wagyu fat for an added depth of flavour, the fried rice is served atop ooba leaf foam. While the dish offers an interesting concept, I questioned the foam's contribution, as it tended to soak up the rice, detracting from its desired fluffy texture.

Japanese Sweet Potato Croquettes 3.5/5

The Japanese Sweet Potato Croquettes ($16) is a new sides. Japanese sweet potato is used for its starchier texture. Deep fried to golden brown. Crispy on the exterior, sweet and soft inside.

Apple Tart with Ice Cream 4.2/5


For dessert, the Apple Tart with Ice Cream ($18) offered a delightful finale. Slices of Granny Smith apples were served alongside a housemade berry sauce — a perfect balance of tartness and sweetness to end the meal on a satisfying note.

Wagyu X continues to reign supreme as a haven for discerning diners seeking the ultimate Wagyu experience.
