Dinner at Edo Japanese Restaurant

We were going to watch House of Dancing Water at the City of Dreams so we went there earlier to have dinner at Edo Japanese Restaurant.

There’s a free shuttle from The Venetian to the City of Dreams. There’s a free shuttle to virtually every hotel in Macao.

This was my first time to try Edo Japanese Restaurant.

The interiors were very impressive starting from the entrance.

If you won big in the casino then this is a good restaurant to celebrate at and blow your big bucks. An order of steak costs MOP$4,500 or US$580 or P23,490. The value of MOP$=HK$.

I did some research and found out that A5 BMS12 is about the best grade of Japanese Wagyu Kobe steak that you can get. It’s extremely rare even in Japan. It has the highest marbling of all the different grades of beef.

I love uni or sea urchin so I ordered this inspite of it’s high price. The uni was pinkish as to the ones I’ve had in Manila that were beige in color. The flavor was more delicate and creamier. It was worth it.

I know I said I’m not a big fan of ramen and it’s true. I love udon more specially Inaniwa udon which is thinner than the regular udon and made in Akita prefecture in Northern Japan.

The broth was simple, clean and had a sweetness from mirin. I loved how they put large, thin slices of raw beef on top of the noodles and poured hot broth over it cooking the beef slowly.

I just wish the Inaniwa udon was more al dente. Nevertheless I finished it all. Yum!!!

Instead of the usual unagi (eel) on rice I convinced my mom to go wild and order the 3 fish combo instead. It was so much better! The black cod and mackarel were perfectly cooked. As a bonus there were also slices of pork which was probably the tastiest of them all.

My dad ordered the best dish of the night. In Western countries you will hardly see fish sold with the head. In Asia we need to see the head of the fish to tell whether it’s fresh. An added bonus is the meat in the jaw is the best part. A lot of people like to eat the eyes too.

In this picture you can see the jaw or panga of the yellowtail fish.

The meat was incredibly buttery soft. There was so much meat too. This was definitely everyone’s favorite dish.

Look how tiny the lobster look beside the humongous King Crab. Well at least I think that’s a King Crab.

I was mesmerized watching the mouth of the giant King Crab move with the tentacles move in wiggling about. It felt like one of the creatures from Men in Black.
