To the ladies who recently expecting to be a mother, became a mother or grandmother and already a mother just want to say Happy Belated Mother’s Day. Papa bear spent his time this year secretly growing this lovely purple fuchsia colour flower. I have never seen such stunning purple colour flower before. So it was quite shocking for me how papa bear can hide a garden of flowers without us knowing.
We decided to dine at Wagyu Angus Grill (51 Majors Bay Road, Concord NSW) recommended by my lovely mama bear.
Beautifully decorated restaurant with sparkling chandelier lights and marble tables. Chairs so soft and comfy may have imprinted my bottom the entire night. It was suggested by mama bear this place seemed exceptionally perfect for Valentine’s Day. Hint Papa bear.
Our table ordered the Mother’s day special set ($59 p.p), set B ($59 p.p) & set C ($69 p.p).
We were served complimentary sparkling champagne. It was only meant to be for Mother’s day set. But the owner was generous to provide additional champagne.
As we waited for our meals to arrive. I was so fascinated with the side plate. Shaped into a quirky heart.
Our starter ocean trio (for all set menu) soon arrived served onto the most adorable arty seafood themed glazed plate. Fresh oyster, smoked salmon in a creative rose shape placed on a slice crisp cucumber and prawn cocktail trenched with thousand island mayo.
I was amused when the seafood chowder soup (MDS Set menu) was served at our table. It reminded me of one of the Simpson’s episode. I honestly don’t know why (insert giggles).
The light fluffy shell pastry was perfection that I had stroked it a few times with my clean fingers before giving it to my mama bear. As she unfolded the crackling layers of pastry, laid below was the soup that was so thick and creamy with chunks of seafood pieces made it worth the wild to persuade my mama to give me the rest of the soup.
The Peking duck wrap (MDS Set menu) was tasty. It’s differently made compared to traditional Peking duck courses I’ve come across. Usually the pancake wraps are soft and chewy, but this one nicely toasted and crunchy served with chunky mango pieces. And check out the serving plate. Funky Chinese shaped fan. Their presentation is extravagant.
LOOK at that mouth watering Wagyu steak! (Set B menu) Full blood 400 day grain fed wagyu MBS 9+ sirloin. It literally melted into my mouth. After my first piece I had eaten, I stayed silent and continued my steak until I had devoured all of it. Papa and Mama bear kept eyeing my steak. I did not surrender the steak to my parents because it was soooo juicy and tender. It was the perfect fatty and meaty ratio to be served.
Surf and turf (Set C menu) included Wagyu Steak and Lobster Delight in Lobster Florentine sauce. As stated above the Wagyu steak incredibly amazing. The lobster meat was so so but the lobster Florentine sauce made the dish enjoyable to eat overall.
Grilled king prawn (MDS Set menu) surprisingly addictive especially the caramelized sauce. It would have been more delightful if it was served with a piece of freshly baked dinner rolls or even with rice. Papa bear almost licked the plate if It hadn’t been a large group of people sitting near us. Lol!
Triple Indulgence dessert (for all set menu) sounded so epic on the menu. And it was! Chocolate mousse, snowball and cheesecake. Chocolate mousse rich in chocolate flavour. Snowball ice cream so smooth and creamy covered with chunky mango. The triple layer cheesecake wasn’t so much mama bears favourite as it wasn’t enough cream cheese rather a lot of fluffy whipped cream. Alongside our sweet sweet treats we were given complimentary coffee or tea.
By the end of the night we were the last seating tables due to the continuous conversations on rambling over silly subjects with my family. The business owners managed to take their time to speak with us about how they started their business. Both husband and wife retiree’s opened a few months ago and successfully continued their business. Now opens fusion yum cha from Friday to Sunday.
They opened their business just for fun. It inspired me to think of something to do when I retire. This is a very long time from now. Perhaps travel around the world on a cruise ship. But that’s another story to tell.
Just before we waved our hands goodbye to the owner’s we received free environmental friendly gift bags (MDS Set menu). Very creative gift. Matching cup and plate.
WAG was just the perfect restaurant to celebrate Mother’s Day. Can’t wait to try their yum cha next time I’m there!
