My (and even my family) favorite Japanese
restaurant in Singapore has launched their FIRST Kyoto fair featuring the
award-winning KYOTO BEEF that has done its ancestors proud by clinching the TOP
prize at the 61st Kinki Tokai Hokuriku Union Beef Cattle Kyoshin Association in
2014.

Really? Kyoto Beef? How good can it be when
it's not even one of the Top 3 Wagyu Beef in Japan? Yes, I had those questions
in mind too but when I had a bite of the Kyoto Beef, I nearly wanted to flip
the tables. (Just kidding) Trust me, this breed of cow is just as elite as the
vegetables and tofu produce from Kyoto.

Wagyu purists might disagree but I do
not care. This is definitely my ideal cattle because of the regular marbling of
fats make this a balanced cut that is tender yet not too fatty. Kobe beef felt
like swallowing a whole chunk of butter and I couldn't proceed after one. But
not for this.

The one-week Kyoto fair is run by Okamoto
san, an experienced chef with a restaurant in Kyoto. ALL ingredients, from the
pickles in the appetizers to the strawberries in dessert are all imported from
Kyoto.

There is ala carte menu but the
lunch/dinner course is much more highly recommended for the full quality
experience. The price ranges from $28 to $100, which is jaw-droppingly
reasonable for the excellent standards of the meal. Here is the recap of what
the meal:

Main Course for the Gion Set ($28) Kyoto
Beef in Kyoto Negi (Leeks) and Tofu Pot This tasted like a very robust
sukiyaki but yet sweet! I could pour the broth over a bowl of rice and just
finish everything.

But that's not the end. The dessert brought
the Kyoto meal to another climax. Matcha Fondue. Yes, dark green liquid served
WARM with Kyoto Strawberries, Warabi Mochi, Matcha Cake and Shiratama Dango.
This was so ridiculously good that I licked my fondue cup clean.
Blissful.

The beef, the tofu, the matcha. Every ingredient
played their respective role in he course. Looks like this meal has set a high
standard for 2015 and honestly speaking, it's difficult to find another place
in Singapore that can beat this in terms of value and quality.
