MAGOSABURO Philippines: Finest Grade Japanese Wagyu Beef


MAGOSABURO Philippines is the 6th to franchise from Japan. It has captured international attention since its inception 5 years ago and has been expanding worldwide. MAGOSABURO takes pride in their finest grade Japan Wagyu beef, which are carefully selected and examined for their customers. Known as the “WAGYU HUNTER,” Magosaburo serve only the best Wagyu cooked to perfection through their very own Ishi-Yaki (stone roast) method of cooking. Using an infrared thermometer to lock in the flavor and taste of the food, Magosaburo’s especially crafted lava plates bring out the best flavors indeed.

Love the interior – very modern and classy. Perfect for dates or business meetings.

I have always thought that Magosaburo only serves set menus but to my surprise, their menu list was really long. They serve a la carte as well; and, Chef Motomatsu Takashi prepared some of their bestsellers for us to try.

3 Kinds Kimchi – raddish, cucumber and lettuce
Great for starters as the salty and spicy veggies delight your palate, wanting for more.

Smoked Barracuda with Calamansi
This tastes like smoked tinapa drizzled with olive oil, sesame oil and calamansi

Mixed Sashimi Salad with Tomato Sauce
Fresh sashimis: tuna, salmon, scallop and squid with a salsa vinaigrette dressing.
Clean and refreshing taste.

Mentaiko Capellini with Prawns
Reminds me of Aligue Pasta.

See those marbling? Sooooooooo good!
So okay, to start, we were each given a lemon (for the ox tongue), steak sauce, foamy soy sauce and mountain salt. (salty, saltier and saltiest).

Next, using an infrared thermometer, they checked the lava stone if it’s already heated to 180-200 degrees, which was the perfect temperature for the stone to bring out the best flavors of the meat.

Lemon+salt on it was perfection! SARAP TALAGA!

Special Prime Short Rib
I strongly suggest that you try it first without dipping on any sauce to appreciate its heavenly flavor. It was extremely juicy and tender.

OUR FAVORITE

It’s like a bigger version of the prime short rib.
