The City's Best Chefs are Collaborating on Four-Hands, Wagyu Beef Meals
Despite the odds, a fancy specialty restaurant opened in October last year in Bonifacio Global City. Wagyu Studio offers premium Wagyu beef from an authentic Japanese chef. We tried it just before it opened and it doesn’t disappoint.
Now the restaurant’s proprietors are upping the ante and have invited some of the city’s—and the country’s—best chefs to a collaborative dinner that puts the spotlight on the premium meats as well as celebrate the best Japanese and local products.
Live Kitchen Sessions will feature Wagyu Studio’s executive chef Yoji Kitayama, who will work with celebrated chefs in a special four-hands dinner during four evenings this month: Margarita Forés of Grace Park on January 13, Josh Boutwood of The Test Kitchen and Helm on January 14, Miko Calo of Restaurant Metronome on January 20, and Chele Gonzalez of Gallery by Chele on January 21. Each chef is preparing a special menu that shows of their skills as well as the Wagyu meats.

“These first Live Kitchen Sessions are vey meaningful for us,” says LA Clavano, managing director of Wagyu Studio. “We want not only to celebrate the remarkable culinary talent we have in the Philippines, but also to commemorate the arrival of our Grand Prix Kobe wagyu from three-time Kobe Beef Grand Prix wining farmer, Kyuko Tanaka. This is a historic first for the Philippines.”
“We have worked very hard to establish our reputation as a restaurant for high-quality Japanese and local ingredients and produce,” explains Chef Kitayama. “But now, these sessions are all about having fun. It is my honor to work with these amazing chefs.”
“In the end, The Live Kitchen Sessions are a playground,” adds Rianne Barrameda, restaurant manager of Wagyu Studio. “It is a space where chefs can jam with us, explore their creativity, share their creations with our guests and just blow us all away.”
Only 16 guests will be accommodated at each of the four dates of Live Kitchen Sessions. Due to the extraordinary circumstances, proper roper social distancing will be practiced and all health and safety protocols will be strictly enforced. The Live Kitchen Sessions: Volume One will be held at Wagyu Studio’s Live Kitchen at The Finance Center, at the corner of Ninth Avenue and 26th Street in BGC.
