Magosaburou, an exquisite and luxurious Japanese BBQ restaurant that opened in ION Orchard about a year ago. The hefty price was always a stumbling block for me to try it, but I got lucky when my wife decided to treat me to it on my birthday! ^^

 <Mangalican Pork Boston Butt>

If you do a search on Google, the Mangalica pig looks almost like a sheep in some ways. The meat is tender and tasty but I suppose I expected much more from it.

 <Rib Eye Steak>

Here they use Kurohana Beef - look at the marbling. You'd know it's the main reason why we came. The meat when cooked was simply divine. It melts in your mouth and the flavour of it was absolutely heavenly.

<Spicy Tofu Soup> 

With just tofu and clams as its main ingredients, the soup is surprisingly tasty. The spiciness is also just right. Perfect for a cold day.

 <Mongou Squid and Hokkaido King Scallop>

The squid was awesome! Really fresh and chewy. It's no wonder many diners rated it a must-try. The king scallop was somewhat common. You can probably get the same taste at any other good restaurants.

 <Kurobuta Pork Jowl>

If I am not wrong, this belongs to the cheek of the pig. Even though it was slightly tougher and chewy, the taste of it was not too bad. Personally, I think the taste of it was slightly on the stronger side.

 <Outside Skirt in a Pot>

This is basically beef. Chunkier and tougher, it provided something a little more filling for our stomachs. The taste was really good though! It was almost like the marinated meat you'd get from a typical Korean BBQ restaurant.

 <Panna Cotta>

This is the first time I've came across a Panna Cotta served with condensed milk. It was not bad considering the Panna Cotta was light and needed a boost of flavour. But I preferred to eat the Panna Cotta on its own as it accentuates its basic vanilla fragrance.


The coffee flavour in this wasn't robust enough. Totally overpowered by the cheese and the cocoa, it was a little disappointing.

Ambience - Great
Food - Good
Cost - $100+
Overall - Try it!
