Bento boxes ($58)

Prized wagyu comes delicately sliced and presented in eye-catching ways at The Gyu Bar. The refreshed selection of bento boxes might feature wagyu nigiri, made using Kumamoto A5 Kainomi cuts, paired with colourful chirashi studded with ikura, A5 Karubi, tamagoyaki, and creamy Hokkaido uni. Equally indulgent is the surf and turf option; where tender slices of A5 Karubi wagyu are complemented with mentaiko-topped rounds of scallops. And for the beef lovers, the loaded wagyu tongue yakiniku set sees fluffy rice blanketed in thin and thick cuts of Australian wagyu tongue for varying textures, as well as A5 Karubi yakiniku. Each comes with a side of salad, and orders made from now till Oct 31 will come with complimentary an addictive snack of Sakura ebi crackers.
