Open For Business: The Wagon and Ushidoki Wagyu Kaiseki

Japanese food and beverage group AP Company Co, whose Singapore branch set up the collagen hotpot chain Tsukada Nojo, has launched two new restaurants in Tras Street - both with a focus on beef.

The Wagon's menu uses various cuts of beef in its dishes, such as beef consomme with homemade ravioli ($18); beef carpaccio topped with parmesan cheese ice cream, rocket salad and half-boiled egg ($25); beef cassoulet ($20), with beef confit, bologna sausage and stewed beef simmered with tomato sauce and white beans; Japanese beef platter ($55) and beef hamburg steak ($35).

If you are still hungry, take your pick of tapas from the wagon going around the restaurant.

For a more fine-dining experience, head next door to its sister outlet, Ushidoki Wagyu Kaiseki. The wagyu-focused kaiseki restaurant serves dinner set meals priced at $200 or $300.
