GC 3, Moo Moo Bar & Grill

After our trip to the national park, it appeared everyone was rather spent. I'm sure the early start to the day and the humidity didn't help. A nice refreshing shower back at our apartment helped though. Relaxing with a cold beer (Sol - yep, someone was already tasked to hit the bottle shop by this stage) and enjoying the night view from our apartment also helped.

By this time, we were hungry again of course. After a brief discussion re dinner, we settled on steak. A few suggestions got thrown around, and with a bit of research on the smartphones, we decided on Moo Moo Bar & Grill. When we arrived, we were told that we could wait at the bar until a table become available.

Aloe Vera Cocktail
The aloe vera cocktail was very sweet and simply tasted of aloe vera juice combined with alcohol. Not really much more to it.

Unfortunately, we had to wait quite a while and upon being finally seated, we looked with horror that their signature dish, the 1kg wagyu steak took 55mins to prepare. Since we had come all this way to try out their signature dish, we immediately ordered 3 to share and played the waiting game.

Wagyu Bolognese $29
Rich Wagyu Bolognese $29: w/ hand cut papperdelle, parmigiano reggiano and lemon

The pasta was a very small serving and really quite boring. It was simply mediocre.

Spice Rubbed 1kg Wagyu Rump Roast
Spice Rubbed 1kg Wagyu Rump Roast $125: 100 certified AACO 1lg Wagyu rump cap, rubbed w/ Chef's secret spice rub, sealed until smokey on the char grill and oven roasted to your liking. Carved at the table served w/ wild rocket, fig vincotto + pecorino, Wagyu fat roast Kipler potatoes, garlic + rosemary and a trio of chef's sauce selections.

I must say, this steak was one of the best I've ever had. It was so perfectly tender melt-in-your-mouth beef. I would happily come back here just for the steak. If this place was open in my home town, it would be my top choice for steak. At $125 for 1kg, it's actually not bad value given most decent 300g steaks will set you back $35+ anyway. Everyone agreed around the table it was worth the wait, and worth the trip to Moo Moo for the meat.

Potatoes and the Rocket Salad
Onion Rings
Given how good the steak was, none of the sides were particularly interesting or enticing to me.
