My mate Chef Greg, now @ Puri Puri Restaurant + Grade A4 Japanese Wagyu

So a little out of the blue, I get a message from my great Chef mate Greg. Remember him from Siglap Khun Mookata days. He then went to CBP for Mikawa #2, the one we usually frequent in Siglap too. And now he has set up on his own. He had some ‘spare’ Wagyu, just 3-4Kg slabs of Japanese Grade A4. “Did I want some?” said Greg. “I am on my way over now!” said I. This is how My mate Chef Greg, now @ Puri Puri Restaurant + Grade A4 Japanese Wagyu happened.

Psssssst. Just to advise, Greg is the MUCH smaller guy now – an amazing transformation from him… Be proud of that too buddy!!!

His new Japanese venture is called Puri Puri. Japanese rice-bowl sets on steroids. Japanese Wagyu, Uni, Onsen eggs and much much more. A must visit, and a personal commitment from me to do a proper blog for him. We were already stuffed though as we had been to SimLim and acquired some new tech which was being set-up, so we had to lunch nearby. But we did pop in to see our mate afterwards and I wanted to share a few photos. Get your bum down to see Greg, mention the Kennett’s, maybe even ping him to eat and buy some Wagyu. Check this out…

So off we trot to Greg’s new restaurant, and what a cracker it is. This is co-habiting with a rather cool lighting shop on Beach Road, opposite The Concourse. This is Puri Puri, Japanese rice bowls on steroids (hence him ordering grade A4 Japanese Wagyu. You getting this now right… Sadly we were stuffed out as we had to have dinner at SimLim Square awaiting the set up of some new electronic stuff I had just acquired. But we will be back and I will be eating and I will be having photos for blogs properly. That is a commit!!!

See what I mean about the partnership with the lighting company. Therefore he gets amazing space for the restaurant and the lighting company get a captive audience for their product (what a way to browse), but also an incredible showroom shared with Greg. Genius!!!

And this is in 2015 when proudly hung next to Khun Mookata in Siglap hawker, where Chef Greg was still using amazing quality Japanese Wagyu and Iberian pork. Best hawker food EVER!!!

A tiny little galley kitchen, but boy are these guys serving up some quality food. Yes, that is a jar of rendered beef fat to be used as cooking oil. And, yes, the cook is flame-grilling a hunk of Wagyu and yes that is fat content is causing the flames. I could watch this all day.

I got her home finally. Not the best photo, but you get the drift right? This is a HULKING 3KG of some of the best meat you can ever buy on the PLANET. This ladies and gentlemen is Grade A4 Japanese Wagyu. I love you!!!

My mate Chef Greg, now @ Puri Puri Restaurant + Grade A4 Japanese Wagyu

I got SIX massive rib steaks from the 3KG, as in monster steaks. You’ll see evidence of that soon. But seriously just have a look at that. If that does not get you going as a foodie then nothing will. It is a thing of absolute beauty!!! Goodness me. FOODPORN!!!

I froze 5 steaks and saved one for brekkie today. My version of steak and eggs. Shit yeah. How good is that? Stunning Wagyu steak, seared in salt & pepper. Scrambled eggs. And fried bread, fried in the rendered beef fat from the steak. BOOM!!! Lucky family… FOODPORN!!!

And that was that. My mate Chef Greg, now @ Puri Puri Restaurant + Grade A4 Japanese Wagyu. From a quick message to a rushed visit to a breakfast half a day later. That’s how we roll. Three of my mates have also placed Wagyu orders on him. How could you not? So boys when you go collect, make sure you haven’t eaten and go try Puri Puri too. Just bloody brilliant. Greg my friend be seeing you soon buddy. So great to see you. Folks go visit. No need to buy 3Kg like us food-freaks. Just order a bowl from Greg, and – ENJOY!!!
