Cuisine: Japanese Wagyu
After our crazy Yazawa dinner a couple weeks ago my friend Erick recommended I step “downscale” and try the wagyu at Wadatsumi.
Again, this is a small international “steakhouse” chain.
The frontage is on Pico just blocks away from meat palace Totoraku!
And the rather huge interior (this photo only shows part of it).
Homemade tofu with wasabi and soy glaze. Super soft texture and mild creamy flavor.
Wagyu beef croquette. Pretty mild, with lots of potato.
Wagyu beef curry. Tasty enough and my favorite dish, but nowhere near as good as the Yazawa wagyu curry. Truth is I like a more straight up curry better.
Filet mignon special with mashed potatoes. Tasty beef nuggets.
Sauces for the beef. Soy, yuzu mustard, and yuzu juice.
Rice was on hand too.
Overall this was an okay lunch and I’ll have to return to try some other things, namely a dinner set. But I wasn’t that impressed by this format. I like regular Yakiniku better — or the crazy Yazawa type.
