The French-Japanese steakhouse’s new weekend brunch features seafood or Wagyu set menus using a new Wagyu type: Kyoto Princess Wagyu. Nicknamed ‘Mother Cow’, this new meat is produced from older (nine to 10-year-old) female Wagyu which does have a lower fat ratio but retains a melt-in-your-mouth texture and sweetness. The weekend Wagyu brunch comes with a selection of Wagyu amuse-bouche, Wagyu prepared in three different ways, shabu shabu-style Wagyu oxtail udon soup and a gelato ice cream made using Wagyu oil. Alternatively, you can opt for the seafood-focused ‘Le Voyage des Fruits de Mer’ brunch which has dishes like Manila clam salad, grilled squid salad onigiri, Japanese crab meat udon and a seafood platter of scallop, New Zealand scampi, and Hiroshima oyster tempura. Dessert is just as surprising on the seafood side with gelato ice cream infused with Japanese Sakura shrimp.
