Wagyu Beef Cheeks @ Alexis, The Gardens
It was a last minute thing to go to Alexis… so everyone was not prepared…
At the mean time, our hungry tummies couldn’t wait… so we had a Clam Chowder first…
Place is nice… service was good… Price is not too bad either, 1 pax paid around RM 60 without wine… I won’t mind going back for the beef….
Wagyu (??, wagy??) refers to several breeds of cattle genetically predisposed to intense marbling and to producing a high percentage of oleaginous unsaturated fat. The meat from wagyu cattle is known worldwide for its marbling characteristics, increased eating quality through a naturally enhanced flavor, tenderness and juiciness, and thus a high market value. Several areas in Japan are famous for the quality of their Wagyu cattle, and ship beef bearing their areas’ names. Some examples are Kobe, Mishima and Ohmi beef.
The wagyu cattle’s genetic predisposition yields a beef that contains a higher percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids than typical beef. The increased marbling also improves the ratio of monounsaturated fats to saturated fats.- Wikipedia
