A Guide To Festive Dining

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without some delicious festive food – and where better to enjoy a magical meal with loved ones than in London? This winter, one of the most Christmassy restaurants London has to offer is back: Meet M Restaurants’ new and innovative Christmas menus! 

To escape those dark and cold winter’s nights, we invite you to discover the festive offerings and festive dining experiences available at M this Christmas. 

M’s Festivities 

M Restaurants certainly don’t do anything by halves at Christmas, with no fewer than three carefully curated festive menus and a signature Christmas cocktail to sample.

The Festive Classic menu is a feast for both the eyes and the stomach, boasting a selection of M’s most popular dishes, all lovingly made from local farmers’ finest produce. Try the trout sashimi and beetroot and potato rosti for starters, while the succulent Shio Koji-marinated chicken and miso mushroom await your main. Round the meal off with a classic chocolate brownie or a selection of refreshing sorbets. 

The Festive Signature menu highlights M’s much-loved range of signature starters, mains and desserts. Wagyu fried chicken and burrata are on the menu for starters, with a moreish miso and furikake sourdough bread as a side, served with whipped beef butter. Of course, no one does steak better than M and there is a tasty choice of steaks available for your main dish, as well as wild-farmed black truffle tortellini for the pasta lovers. However, it’s the Chimichurri butter roasted turkey, served with delicious Pincho Criollo stuffing and a Malbec and cranberry jus, that’s the real star here – festive dining in London at its finest.

Finally, the M Festive Icons menu is a sumptuous gift just waiting to be unwrapped. Although the Kingfish sashimi and smoked Wagyu starters are sure to catch your eye, the mains really are the main event – a choice between English lamb, monkfish, Wagyu or Ribeye steak, all served with golden roast potatoes, festive vegetables, beef dripping jus and firecracker chimichurri. If you have room, the trio of tempting desserts are the perfect way to end the meal. 

As well as the food, there’s nothing like a few festive drinks near Bank to get everyone in the mood for Christmas.

The History of Wagyu Beef

If you’re new to eating steak, you may have heard Wagyu beef mentioned before, or if you’re a seasoned steak aficionado, you may have been lucky enough to try it. So, what is Wagyu beef exactly? 

Wagyu beef is a luxurious beef hailing from Japan, renowned for its superior quality and flavour. This article delves into the world of Wagyu, highlighting this meat’s unique characteristics and the innovative techniques used in its production. 

Origins and History

The history of Wagyu beef is as rich as its flavours, with origins that can be traced back to Japan. There are even reasons to suggest that Wagyu beef goes back as far as 35,000 years. But what does Wagyu mean? The meaning of the word ‘Wagyu’ is actually surprisingly simple! ‘Wa’ in Japanese means ‘Japanese’ and ‘gyu’ means ‘Cow’. So essentially, Wagyu means ‘Japanese cow’.

Originally, this native Japanese breed of cow was used for agricultural work, but was then bred with imported breeds from Great Britain, Europe and Korea to create the Wagyu cows we know today. In fact, Japan classifies four different cattle breeds as Wagyu: the Japanese Black, the Japanese Brown, the Japanese Shorthorn, and the Japanese Polled breeds.

In 1975, the Wagyu made its way to America, when four Wagyu bills were imported and used in a selective breeding programme for American Wagyu. They were bred with females from the Angus, the Holstein and the Hereford breeds.

Today, Wagyu beef is a global culinary sensation. The taste and tenderness of this beef is of an unparalleled quality, which is why you can now find Wagyu beef in the repertoires of gourmet chefs all over the world. 

Wagyu Varieties

There are lots of varieties of Wagyu beef, with the most famous being Kobe, Matsusaka, and Ohmi. 

  • Kobe

Kobe beef comes from Hyogo and is perhaps the most well-known type of Wagyu. Kobe Wagyuu comes from a subspecies of Japanese cow called ‘Tajimas’ that are found in the Fukano Valley.

  • Matsusaka

Famous for its high quality, Matsusaka Wagyu is in the top three most famous types of Wagyu and also comes from Tajima cows. Tajima cows are truly pampered cattle and even receive regular massages! 

  • Ohmi

Also in the top three Wagyu varieties, Ohmi beef comes from the Shiga prefecture situated to the east of Kyoto, from an older strain of Japanese Black cattle. Ohmi beef is characterised by the fine texture of its marbling and smooth, sweet flavour.

  • Hida

Hida beef comes from the Gifu prefecture and is also made using the beef from Tajima cows. Hida beef has thinner muscle fibres and a fine marbling that leads to incredibly tender and juicy steaks from all parts of the cow.

  • Miyazaki

Miyazaki Wagyu can be found in the Miyazaki prefecture, which is the second-largest producer of Japanese Black Wagyu in Japan. 

Some other types of Wagyu include Blackmore, Akaushi, Yonezawa, Kazuusa, Hitachi, and Iwate. M restaurant uses only the finest Kobe and cuts of Blackmore Wagyu. 

Marbling and Flavour

We’ve all heard about Wagyu’s unique marbling and flavour, but why is Wagyu so good

In Wagyu beef, thin lines of fat are distributed evenly throughout the cow’s flesh, which creates the meat’s unique marbling effect. This fat creates a delicious, umami richness. Marbling is considered a hallmark of quality in Wagyu beef. 

Wagyu cows are big and strong, meaning their fat cells are more evenly distributed across their muscles. This leads to a pinker and more delicate meat, which in turn creates a juicy flavour when cooked. Wagyu beef fat actually has a lot of heart-healthy fatty acid, oleic acid. This oleic acid has a very low melting point, which explains why this meat is so soft and quite literally melts in the mouth!

Breeding and Raising

So, how is Wagyu beef raised? There are meticulous breeding and raising practices that go into Wagyu beef. 

Wagyu cows are raised by specialty Wagyu breeders until they are between seven and ten months old. When they are sold, they must be given a birth certificate to prove their pure Wagyu bloodline. They are usually harvested for their meat at around two to three years of age. 

Wagyu cattle live a stress-free life, with plenty of room to roam their field and graze as they please. They are fed a specialised diet using natural ingredients like hay, corn, and wheat with no unnatural ingredients, or steroids, hormones or drugs to affect their growth or weight. The process is completely natural.

Although rearing Wagyu cows is more time-consuming and expensive, it is more ethical and sustainable and produces high-quality, tender and delicious meat. 

Global Production

Although Japan is still the primary producer of Wagyu beef, countries like Australia, the US and the UK have adapted Japanese farming practices to cultivate and raise their own cattle. In fact, according to Wagyu International, Wagyu cows are now bred on every continent in the world. This growth of the Wagyu industry has led to a demand for availability, meaning that consumers are willing to pay a higher price for Wagyu beef. 

M’s goal is to support British suppliers. Where possible, the food and drink in M restaurant is sourced from local produce. We serve Blackmore Wagyu Grade 9++, and regeneratively farmed ‘Ethical Butcher’ cuts dry-aged in the kitchens’ Himalayan salt chamber for up to 35 days. We are also proud to champion the Sustainable Steak Movement, which launched in 2021 and aims to accelerate a carbon-conscious beef offering in restaurants across the UK.

Cooking Tips and Recommendations 

If you’d like to try cooking a Wagyu steak at home, to best enjoy its unique qualities we would recommend following these tips for the perfect steak:

  • Remove your Wagyu steak from the fridge an hour before cooking and bring it up to room temperature
  • Season both sides of the steak with a touch of salt and pepper
  • Preheat your cast-iron skillet on a high heat, then grease it lightly with oil, butter, or a small piece of the fat from the outside of your steak
  • Sear your steak on a high heat for two to three minutes on each side – no matter how you like your steak, Wagyu beef is best enjoyed medium-rare. 
  • Use a meat thermometer to check the meat’s temperature. For a medium-rare steak this should be 57-60°C
  • Just before your steak comes to the desired temperature, remove it and rest it under foil after cooking for five to ten minutes to help redistribute the juices throughout the meat

Make a memorable dining experience by pairing your Wagyu steak with some tasty side dishes. Wagyu goes well with earthy flavours like sautéed mushrooms and roasted vegetables, or try something simple like a hearty baked potato or sweet potato fries.

Culinary Uses and Recipes 

Wagyu beef is a culinary masterpiece, versatile enough to use in a wide variety of dishes. Have you tried any of the below?

  • Sukiyaki: A Japanese hot-pot dish, where the Wagyu is slowly cooked with vegetables and a soy sauce broth in an iron pot 
  • Shabu-Shabu: Another Japanese dish of thinly sliced Wagyu and vegetables, boiled in water and served with a selection of sauces
  • Wagyu Steak Sandwich: In this delectable American favourite, Wagyu beef is layered on ciabatta bread with mushrooms, onion and horseradish 
  • Bo Kho Braised Wagyu Brisket: This Vietnamese dish combines Wagyu brisket with herbs and spices for a warming and flavourful experience 
  • Wagyu Tacos: Head to Mexico with some melt-in-the-mouth tacos, stuffed with thinly-sliced Wagyu beef, onion, fresh lime juice and rocket

At M restaurant, we have fun and innovative takes on Wagyu beef across our menu. For a breakfast treat, add a Wagyu sausage patty to our delicious Bacon and Egg M’Muffin, while at lunch or dinner, try our sumptuous Wagyu Gyoza Dumplings, served with a ponzu dressing, or our Tokyo-inspired Wagyu Bao Buns. For light bites, snack on a Wagyu Scotch Egg, or share our mouth watering 15-hour Wagyu Parmesan Chips. 

Try all these dishes and more with our exclusive Wagyu Experience Menu. Dedicated to showcasing the world’s most exclusive Kobe and Wagyu beef, this is a dining experience you’ll never forget.

The Gourmet Experience 

Dining on Wagyu beef is a real gourmet experience, whether at a high-end restaurant, or in the comfort of your own home.

At M restaurant, you can enjoy an exquisite Wagyu steak in truly luxurious surroundings, accompanied by a glass of fine wine and good company. Our beautiful Threadneedle Street location is perfect for work meetings, events, parties and celebrations. 

We hope you’ve enjoyed this article on the history of Wagyu beef. Book your next dining experience with M restaurant for a culinary experience like no other.

The Importance of Dog-Friendly Restaurants: How to Enjoy Meals with Your Furry Friends

We love spending time with our canine friends, whether it’s cuddling on the sofa or playing fetch in the park. So, when it comes to eating out, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be able to share a meal with them too!

The rise of dog friendly restaurants means that we can now enjoy more quality time than ever with our dogs. In this article, we look at the benefits of dining out with your dog and how to find the top canine compatible spots.

The Growing Trend of Dog-Friendly Restaurants

Dog friendly places to eat have become increasingly popular over the years, largely due to the shift in societal attitudes towards dogs, cementing them firmly as family members and friends rather than just pets.

Growing demands for dog-friendly restaurants has meant that many establishments have now adjusted their offering to cater for our four-legged friends, including seating arrangements, water bowls, and in some cases, a separate dog-friendly menu!

At the front of the pack, M Restaurant’s award-winning Threadneedle Street location is one of the best dog friendly restaurants in London, as well as some locations of M’s sister brand, Gaucho. At these restaurants you can enjoy delicious food, wine and cocktails all in the company of your furry friend. Next time you head out for a Sunday afternoon walk, why not stop for a hearty roast dinner with all the trimmings at M? 

Benefits of Dining Out With Your Dog

There are so many benefits to dining out with your dog. Not only does it strengthen your unique bond by sharing quality time together, but taking your dog out for a dog friendly lunch can also have positive effects on their social skills!

Dogs are social animals by nature and have always formed strong relationships with humans, but if they are not properly socialised from a young age they can experience anxiety and distress in social situations. Taking your dog out to eat will ensure they are exposed to lots of different sights, sounds and smells and are less likely to react negatively to similar environments in the future. They may also meet some fellow dogs to interact and socialise with! If your dog experiences separation anxiety, why not bring them along when you next go for a meal? You’ll also have the additional benefit of not having to rush home to them afterwards. 

Finally, dogs have also been shown to increase social interaction between humans. Dogs are a great conversation starter and many people can’t resist stopping to pet a dog and chat to their owner. Dining out with your furry friend could be a great way for you to meet fellow dog owners and like-minded people. 

Finding Dog-Friendly Restaurants

So, if you’re now wondering: ‘What are the best dog friendly restaurants near me’, luckily there are lots of ways to find out!

Websites like WagIt, a proud partner of M and Dog Friendly provide a directory of restaurants, pubs and cafés that welcome dogs, which you can filter by location and rating. 

Newspapers and magazines often write round-up articles of the best dog-friendly restaurants in a particular area, particularly for large cities like London. 

There are also several useful apps like BringFido and Dugs n’ Pubs that are a great help for owners looking for information on dog-friendly establishments both worldwide and in the UK, from restaurants and pubs to hotels and attractions. 

Dining Etiquette for Dog Owners

If you’re planning to take your dog out for lunch, it’s important to be aware of the correct dining etiquette for dog owners.

Although lots of people love dogs, others prefer to keep their distance, especially while eating. This could be due to not being familiar with dogs, having allergies or even being scared of dogs. For this reason, before you take your dog to a restaurant you should be confident that they are well-behaved enough to sit quietly at your table for the duration of the meal. They should also be kept on a short lead securely attached to something to prevent them from running through the restaurant and getting in the way. If someone sitting near you explains that they are allergic to dogs, respect their request and ask a staff member whether it would be possible for you to sit somewhere else. 

Our top tip is to walk your dog before the meal – this should tire them out so they relax while you eat. You could also give your dog a toy or two to keep them occupied, although any noisy or squeaky toys are best left at home! 

Preparing Your Dog for Dining Out

Responsible dog owners should ensure their dog has basic obedience training and social skills before taking them out to eat. Obedience training includes knowing how to sit, stay and come on command, as well as leaving food alone. Social skills include being comfortable and calm in busy places with lots of distractions and not displaying aggression or fear towards other dogs. Puppies should not be taken out in public until they have the required vaccinations.  

If your dog is territorial, nervous in crowded or noisy places, or tends to bark a lot, large or busy restaurants may not be the best option. Research the restaurant beforehand and check whether it will be suitable for your pet – you could also speak to a member of staff if you have any questions or concerns. At the restaurant, choose a corner table or a table with plenty of space around it to keep your dog calm. If you are going to sit outside, make sure there is enough shade for your dog, as some breeds are more susceptible to heat stroke than others. 

Ensuring Safety and Hygiene

Safety and hygiene while out and about with your dog are important. Avoid feeding your dog food from your plate or letting them up on the table, as this is unhygienic. If the restaurant does not provide food for dogs, you should bring some of your own dog food or treats, as well as a water bowl. 

Keep your dog on a short leash that is securely attached to something, or hold it in your hand to prevent trips and accidents. If you are going to be at the restaurant for several hours, take your dog outside for one or two quick walks during the meal to give them the chance to use the toilet and stretch their legs. Dispose of any waste immediately and do not bring it back inside the restaurant – your fellow diners are unlikely to be impressed!  

Community Building Through Dog-Friendly Dining

Dog-friendly restaurants like M Restaurants help to create a warm and welcoming community for dog owners. Sharing a meal with your dog helps to build your network and you may even find that you make some new friends!

There are plenty of meet-ups and charitable initiatives based around dogs and dining, so if you own a dog and want to socialise more, all while enjoying a delicious meal and a drink or two, why not check what sorts of dog-friendly events are available in your area?

We hope you enjoyed our article on the importance of dog-friendly restaurants and that if you have a dog of your own, you’ll soon be making a reservation at your nearest dog-friendly dining spot!

Day To Night: How To Spend A Bank Holiday In London

A bank holiday in London is the perfect time to explore everything this vibrant city has to offer. With a plethora of attractions, parks, historic landmarks, museums, and culinary experiences, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’re a tourist or a local looking for a fun way to spend your day off, here’s a guide on how to make the most of your bank holiday in London.

Exploring London’s Best Attractions on a Bank Holiday

London is famous for its iconic attractions, and a bank holiday is an ideal time to visit them. Start your day by taking a stroll along the Thames River and marvel at the beauty of landmarks such as: 

  • Tower Bridge 
  • The London Eye
  • Houses of Parliament

 Explore the historic Tower of London and discover its fascinating history. Don’t forget to catch the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace for a quintessentially British experience.

If you’re looking for a unique perspective of the city, consider taking a boat tour along the River Thames. These tours offer stunning views of the city’s skyline and allow you to see famous landmarks from a different angle. Alternatively, you can hop on a sightseeing bus and enjoy a guided tour of London’s top attractions, complete with interesting commentary.

No visit to London would be complete without a trip to the iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral. This architectural masterpiece, designed by Sir Christopher Wren, is a symbol of the city’s resilience and spiritual heritage. Climb to the top of the dome for panoramic views of London’s skyline, or attend a choral evensong service to experience the cathedral’s serene beauty.

If you’re a fan of literature, don’t miss the opportunity to visit Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Located on the banks of the River Thames, this faithful reconstruction of the original Globe Theatre is where many of William Shakespeare’s plays were first performed. Step back in time as you watch a live performance in the open-air theatre, just as audiences did during the Elizabethan era.

End your day by indulging in some retail therapy in the world-famous shopping districts of Oxford Street and Regent Street. From high-end designer boutiques to flagship stores of popular brands, these bustling streets offer a wide range of shopping options. Treat yourself to a delicious meal at one of the many restaurants and cafes in the area, or catch a West End show for a memorable evening of entertainment.

Exploring London’s Parks and Open Spaces on a Bank Holiday

London is not only known for its iconic landmarks and vibrant city life but also for its abundance of beautiful parks and open spaces. These green oases provide a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle, offering a tranquil haven for both locals and tourists alike.

On a bank holiday, when the city is buzzing with activity and people are seeking relaxation, there’s no better time to explore London’s parks. 

Hyde Park

One of the most popular choices is Hyde Park, a sprawling green expanse located in the heart of the city. As you enter through its grand gates, you’ll be greeted by a serene atmosphere and the sight of families and friends enjoying picnics on the grass. Find a spot under a shady tree, lay out your picnic blanket, and indulge in some delicious food while soaking up the warm sunshine.

Regent’s Park

Adjacent to Hyde Park is Regent’s Park, another delightful option for a bank holiday outing. This park is not only known for its vast open spaces but also for its beautifully manicured gardens and stunning floral displays. Take a leisurely stroll through the Queen Mary’s Rose Garden, where you’ll be captivated by the vibrant colours and intoxicating scents of the blooming roses. Or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, rent a paddleboat and glide along the serene waters of the park’s boating lake.

Richmond Park
