In Hokkaido, wagyu farmers all have a second ‘home’.
At the end of the day, they will gather in old, used containers which are converted into informal ‘bars’.
It is at the bars where they share anecdotes about their day’s work and their family (or how some miss theirs who live in other prefectures). They enjoy small plates of wagyu dishes, served up along with sake and beer. Sometimes, the farmers take turns to prepare their hometown wagyu specialities.

As believers of the “nose to tail” philosophy, the people behind Aburiya and The Container respectfully ensure that they use all the cuts of the Japanese Wagyu beef which they import to Singapore from their partner farmers, to minimise wastage and also to showcase the various unique cuts of the beef.
At Aburiya, they pride ourselves in delivering the perfect yakiniku experience.
They also import their own ‘bincho’, also known as ‘white charcoal’, from their own source. A Japanese tradition for yakiniku, grilling Japanese wagyu over ‘white charcoal’ imparts a special flavour to the slices of wagyu beef.

After taking his restaurant from a posh setting to a more casual one, Belgian chef Emmanuel Stroobant is returning to his fine-dining roots.
The 47-year-old chef's French restaurant, Saint Pierre, will open at One Fullerton in March, taking over a 2,000 sq ft space vacated by the Butter Factory nightclub.
At the new space, Saint Pierre will seat 30 diners, a stark contrast to the 100 seats in Sentosa. Its Central Mall location had 60 seats.
The menu at the revamped Saint Pierre will also be reduced. There will be no a la carte menu, just two six-course menus and two 10-course menus for dinner, including a vegetarian option each.
Some of the offerings include lobster with clams and milk rice; carrot with orange, cacao and tonka bean; and a chocolate dessert with vanilla and passionfruit. He also uses Asian ingredients, such as tamarind, ginger, kaffir lime and lemongrass.
The chef says the dishes have been streamlined to focus on key ingredients, and laughs about writing a much shorter menu now compared with a long list of ingredients before.
