If you’ve ever wanted to bite into the most expensive Wagyu beef sandwich in the world, now’s your chance. Wagyumafia will be opening its first branch in Hong Kong this month, taking over the Wanchai space that was previously occupied by Spanish fine dine Catalunya.
The opening follows a one-night-only pop-up held last month, where fans of Tokyo-based chef Hisato Hamada gladly queued up and shelled out for the sandwiches. Created with marbled Miyazaki deep-fried tonkatsu pork cutlet style and placed between toasted milk bread, the sandwiches went at $400 for a half portion, $800 for a full. The restaurant’s signature Chateaubriand wagyu katsu sando, meanwhile, goes for around $1,400 in Japan.
