The chef will explain the flavours of each cut to you in-person. Now, you don’t need to speculate how your steak looks like by just reading a bunch of dry descriptions on the menu.
Perhaps you worry about the price as it’s in a hotel… but worry not! 100g of steak is around HK$100ish, and HK$100-$200 for Wagyu beef. The price is quite similar to other steakhouses in Hong Kong.
