Tenkaichi is a Japanese BBQ Buffet restaurant specialising in Wagyu Beef. At the end of 2015, Tenkaichi has moved to a new location in Marina Square Shopping Mall from the dingy outdated location in Keypoint before.

Considering our spoilt appetite for a premium cut of meat, we decided to go for Premium Wagyu Beef Buffet Dinner at $69.80++ instead of the deluxe buffet dinner at $44.80++. Basically LD has cravings for meat tonight and she is laser targeting the premium wagyu beef.

Our appetizer was Wagyu Beef Sashimi and Wagyu Beef Yukke (Marinated Wagyu Beef with Egg Yolk). The marbling on the wagyu beef is just beautiful. For simple ratio, it was about 60% - 70% meat and 30% - 40% fats. You consume the beef sashimi the same way as fish sashimi, dip it in a soy sauce and wasabi, then put it in your tongue. The different is that, the icy cold beef will slowly melts in your mouth and slip down your tongue.

Meanwhile, the Wagyu Beef Yukke might look very common as you can see this dish in some Korean restaurants in Singapore. The presentation is similar, thinly cut and topped with raw egg. Korean normally like to add pear into the dish but not the Japanese. The raw egg create a silky velvety texture that just accentuate the flavour of the beef.

The beef tataki, has a different version compare to those we commonly find in Japanese restaurant. The cut is thinner, round and missing the familiar sauce. At the end you actually need to add your own sauce.

We started the BBQ with Wagyu Tan (Wagyu Beef Ox Tongue). The tongue was thinly sliced and seasoned with yuzu sauce. It only take a short while to cook, resulting in springy and succulent texture. We also tried the normal version, it took us double the time to chew the tongue.

The Wagyu Karubi (Wagyu Beef Short Rib Marbling Score 7+, AUS) and Wagyu Rosu (Wagyu Beef Rib Eye Cap Marbling Score 7+, AUS) are just beautiful. It has thicker cut, but not much different in grilling time. Resulting in melt in your mouth sensation. Just like eating mini wagyu steak. Yum Yum. It was so good, I ate it with sprinkle of salt only without any dipping sauce.

If you prefer something more meaty and chewy, Wagyu Nakaochi Karubi (Wagyu Beef Rib Intercostal Marbling Score 7+, AUS) will be the best pick. It has almost cube size cutting, which allow deeper meaty flavours in the wagyu.

In the end, we order three rounds of the Wagyu Tan, Wagyu Karubi, Wagyu Rosu and Wagyu Nakaochi Karubi. Make sure that when you ate the wagyu, you have it with Japanese pickles, to balance the fat with some acidity.

In par with the marbling of the wagyu beef is Ton Toro (Pork Cheek Fillet / Pork Jowl). One of the fattest part of the pork, where the fat content is almost the same as the meat. Through slow grilling it, the fats will melt and become crispy.

The Hotate (Giant Scallops) is thick and juicy, provide value to the meal. As pork intestines is one of our favourite item in Korean BBQ, we decided to try Horumon (Beef Large Intestines). Unlike the pork version, it is chewy, but it has more fatty texture to it. Lets just say that it is an acquired taste.

Though LD and I focused solely on the BBQ, other diners can also enjoy other dishes such as chawanmushi, sushi, sashimi, deep-fried prawns and potato, vegetables, soba, rice, pickles and fruits. All sashimi and raw meat / seafood items need to be ordered from the service staff, while the rest are self service.

We topped up $5 per pax to get free flow of drinks and Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream as well. Service was efficient, while the décor of the place is simple and modern.

Overall it was a good Japanese BBQ restaurant, especially to enjoy the Wagyu Beef Marbling Score 7+ standard. Though you might think that you can go on after a few rounds, the fatty beef just overwhelm you at the end. Definitely a place to go for your Japanese BBQ fix, especially if you are willing to splurge a bit more. Kanpai!! Cheers!!
