Restaurant ASA is a steakhouse with a different approach to cooking. The papillote of wagyu beef burger is popular, and it’s easy to see why.

It’s also steamed rather than grilled, giving the meat extra tenderness, and it’s topped with homemade bacon. Also, try out the grilled and slow-cooked wagyu steak for a reasonable price.
