[Original Entry] Tenkaichi Japanese Restaurant at City Gate (Keypoint) has launched a ‘The Best of Japan’ BBQ Ala-Carte Premium Buffet which offers free flow Wagyu Beef, Sashimi, Scallops and Oysters. Sounds like a very good deal.
The buffet restaurant has also decided to go ahead with a price guarantee. As long as customers are able to find a similar buffet at a better price, they will beat it by 10%.
A Deluxe BBQ Buffet which includes free flow sashimi, premium beef, pork (pork belly, loin, collar and even cheek fillet), seafood such as prawn, mackerel, white tuna and seabream is at $39.80++ (Mon-Thurs) and $44.80++ (Fri-Sun) respectively.
The Premium BBQ Buffet’s highlight is the offering of Wagyu Tataki, Karubi (short rib), Rosu (rib eye cap), Yukke (marinated wagyu beef), Ox Tongue, Hotate and Sashimi at $64.80++ (Mon-Thurs) and $69.80++ (Fri-Sun). The marbling score of the wagyu is at 7+.
What I liked about it was the items are served to you ala-carte style in small dishes, so you can dine in comfort, and the group is able to try quite a sizable variety.
I particularly enjoyed the freshness of the Wagyu Karubi and Ton Toro. While the pork cheek fillet could be slightly tough (so note not to overcook the slices), they were evenly marinated and tasty.
Fortunately, the restaurant did not go over on the seasoning so you can still taste the naturalness of the meats. And the wagyu are only sliced when an order is placed.
The Wagyu Beef Yukke came with an egg yolk. Yes, you have it raw, and mixed, and surprisingly was more delicious than disgusting – you just need to get across any possible psychological barrier.
Tenkaichi’s owner and head chef was once from Japan’s high-end Yakiniku restaurant Jojoen at Roppongi, and eventually stepped out to helm his own.
On the other side of the restaurant is a cooked food section where you can gather items of Japanese fried rice and noodles, sushi, tempura, soba noodles and cooked meat dishes to complement the BBQ food.
The food could have turned cold later in the day because they were placed directly under the air-con, but rest assured they are all freshly prepared daily.
To be truthful, I had my reservations about Tenkaichi initially. The restaurant is located at Citygate Beach Road, not the most glamorous of places. The décor is nothing much to speak of as well, previously converted from a Chinese restaurant.
If you are willing to look beyond that, the type, variety and quality of foods provided can be well-worth the money. It is not all the time you can get buffet with wagyu at that price, with a guarantee.
