HEAT, the all-day dining restaurant of EDSA Shangri-La Manila, has recently launched Mad for Wagyu, another innovative concept in its specialty buffet offerings. A first of its kind in the Manila dining scene, guests at HEAT can indulge in a dinner of unlimited servings of international dishes made with premium Wagyu beef for only P2,415 nett per person. That's about the same price you would pay for a 220g Wagyu tenderloin steak. A value-for-money deal right?

The premium quality of Wagyu Beef makes is very versatile that it can turn any ordinary beef dish into a super special one. If you tour around the buffet spread at HEAT, you will notice that there is a Wagyu dish on every food station. From appetizers to mains, from Japanese to Chinese, and from Grilled to Stewed, there is a dish that will definitely suit you Wagyu craving. Here are some of the dishes I tried that night.

The Wagyu Tomahawk Steak was another top-favorite that night. You start by telling how thick you want the slice is and how many slices you want. Your steak will be grilled based on your preference. I usually have mine cooked medium to medium-well. And because they used Wagyu beef, the steak was very tender you wouldn't even need a steak knife to cut it into pieces.

My second plate consisted of Grilled Marinated Wagyu Beef, Wagyu Beef Shawarma (because I loved it so much), Xiao Long Bao with Minced Wagyu Beef, Mini Wagyu Sliders, Stewed Wagyu Beef Brisket, Wagyu Beef Goulash, Wagyu Beef Chili Con Carne, and Braised Wagyu Beef Cheek.
Looking at the photos, I am quite surprised by the number of beef dishes I had that evening. I don't usually eat beef when in a buffet, and I am not really a steak person. All of that changed thanks to HEAT's Mad for Wagyu. I am now a certified Wagyu lover! And what's great about Mad for Wagyu is that for the same price, you don't only get a Wagyu Steak, you also enjoy a wide selection of buffet dishes made with Wagyu beef.
So if you are a Wagyu lover in search of Wagyu heaven, there's only one place to go. Mad for Wagyu is available every Saturday for dinner (6:00pm to 10:30pm) for P2,415.00 nett per person.
