Kagoshima Kitchen at level 3 of 100AM mall is simply but comfortably furnished, bright, neat and clean, typical of casual mall eateries.

The menu consists mainly of premium wagyu beef and kurobuta pork from Kagoshima prefecture of Kyushu island. Kyushu is the southernmost of Japan's main islands.

We started with Sirloin Yoganyaki $73++.

The bite size cubes of A4 Kagoshima sirloin were lightly seared on a lava slab over a small flame. The flame was gentle but the wagyu sizzled after just moments on the black slab, its grease letting off whiffs of sweet toasty aroma.

In the mouth, the wagyu was soft like foie gras but had a slight tender chewiness to the bite. The soft creamy beef tasted sweet, subtly "milky", the fat melted in the mouth into rich sweet juice, with a trace of savoury toastiness from the sizzle.

I was mind blown by this wagyu.

Next, Kagoshimi Wagyu Sukiyaki $68++.

Eddie helped us cook the tissue thin slices of A4 Kagoshima wagyu with a quick sizzle in a pan.

The sizzled wagyu was dunked in raw egg and then dropped on top of a bowl of steamy boiled pearly white rice. Looks so easy to prepare but the beef tasted wonderful.

The same sweet creamy rich milky savouriness now overlaid with a slight egginess. The slippery raw egg made the beef extra slurpy smooth. It was perfect with the sweet white rice.

Kagoshima Wagyu Shabu Shabu $83++.

The thin slices of Kagoshima sirloin was cooked by briefly dipping them in bonito stock.

The soft, subtly chewy Kagoshima sirloin tasted so good, sweet milky, I didn't need to use the sauces that came with them. The beef came with a savoury soy type sauce and a zesty, fragrant (yuzu?) relish.

After cooking the wagyu and lettuce, the bonito stock turned into a rich sweet savoury soup which we enjoyed very much. I drank two bowls of it 😄

Menchi Katsu $13++

Kagoshima_Kitchen_100AM_Tanjong_Pagar_Itadakimasu_PARCO

Kagoshima Kitchen's famed Kurobuta minced pork cutlet. The outside was very well fried to a nice golden brown crisp. The inside was tender, moist and savoury. Truth be told, by this time I was way too full to really appreciate more food 😛 But, I know that this pork cutlet is one of Kagoshima Kitchen's popular signature dishes.

Loin Tonkatsu $18++.

Same crispy crust outside. The inside was tender and savoury. Another of Kagoshima Kitchen's claim to fame but I was too full to truly appreciate it this round

Forgot to order kaki fry 🤔 (fried oysters) but can always come back another time (just to properly taste Kagoshima Kitchen's famous katsu dishes).
