Mission: To respond thoughtfully and responsibly to my experiences of drinking and dining at restaurants with regard to the quality, service, preparation, presentation and overall experience received thereat. The standpoint is one who respects the crafts of the chef and sommelier and who seeks to understand their choices in the kitchen and cellar and grow in knowledge. In this, I will seek to be fair, reasoned, direct and constructive and aim to keep my ego in check on our mutual journeys through the worlds of food and wine.

Wagyu Burgers and Napa Cabernet

March 12 2011
Came back from Singapore with another load of wines from friend and wine sifu Karen. As reward she prepared salad and we had some wagyu burgers we'd brought from Meidi Ya in Liang Court.

Cracked a bottle of Dunn's 1991 and Robert Mondavi 1991 to compare the Cabernets. Karen preferred the brambly and tasty Dunn. I liked the Mondavi - sleek but tannic, still powerful. Nice match with the wagyu, but then again anything would be a good match with this amazingly tasty beef.
