After seeing Waa Cow! on social media and realising its proximity to my home, my parents and I decided to check it out. The restaurant offers reasonably priced Wagyu beef rice bowls with three choices: Petite, Regular and Truffle.
The normal Sliced Wagyu Beef rice bowl comes in Petite ($9.90) and Regular ($16.90) sizes. The beef is cooked sous vide for 24 hours, then cooked to a lovely golden brown on Akitakomachi rice (high-end grain) from Japan. It is then served with a 62-degree egg and a soy-based beef sauce. If you are a small eater (like my mum) or just feeling peckish, go for the Petite.
I had the Truffle Wagyu Beef ($19.90). It is similar to the Regular bowl but coated with ground black truffle and champignons. You can add a set meal for $3, which includes chawanmushi and a canned drink. However, I do not think that is worth it. Besides, I did not fancy their chawanmushi at all.
My dad had the Aburi Bara Chirashi ($16.10), which has limited portions a day. The sashimi is air-flown and tossed in Waa Cow!’s aged soy sauce, then topped with ikura (salmon roe). Dad found the portion of sashimi measly.
