MUCH ADO ABOUT WAYGU AT FU RIN


At RM90 for 3 pcs, the Aburi Sushi Nigiri is a treat fit for a king or queen. Sprinkled with a savoury sauce, the generous slices of slightly seared Waygu beef we sampled were ultra-tender and juicy. The assertive freshness of chopped spring onion and delicate woodiness from threads of deep-fried leek added layers of flavours to the vinegared rice clumps too.

This serving of sublime beefy goodness beckons at Fu Rin Japanese Restaurant, Holiday Inn Glenmarie. It's one of the many dishes featured in the current Wagyu promotion which will run till further notice.
The famed marbling of this premium beef was clearly visible in every slice of Wagyu Beef Tataki (RM200). Served with shoyu wasabi dressing and a pile of crisp garlic flakes on the side, the meaty layers had a cluster of asparagus spears hidden underneath. Again it was a deftly prepared dish - the beef with its just right degree of doneness made an indelible impression.

Besides the two specialities mentioned above, diners can look forward to other Wagyu dishes such as Gyuniku Yasai Maki (Wagyu beef and vegetable rolls served with butter and soy sauce, RM280), Wagyu Steak Jyu (fried Wagyu sirloin with blended soy sauce served on bed of steamed rice, RM128), Udon Wagyu Beef (hot udon noodles with Wagyu, RM128), Trio Wagyu Beef (fried, grilled and teppanyaki Wagyu, RM280) and Wagyu Wafu Steak (fried Wagyu beef with teriyaki sauce, RM200).

I'm partial to fried rice so the portion of Wagyu Chahan (RM48) hit the spot for me. Bits of omelette, smoky minced garlic and that scrumptious beef raised this simple comfort food to gastronomic heights that would leave you 'ooh'-ing and 'aah'-ing at every mouthful.

 
Like melted butter...that was the impression I had when I bit into the cube of Teppan Wagyu (RM280). Moist, juicy and impossibly melt-in-the-mouth tender, the voluptous flavour coat the mouth with silky richness. The accompanying salad helped to offset the meaty indulgence.

Word has it the Sunday Brunch may be returning to the fold of Fu Rin soon. Buffet fans should keep their ears and eyes out for updates via the hotel FB page.
