Ever heard of the Wagyu Katsu Sando?
It’s Japan’s most famous sandwich and Americans are raving about it because it’s now in New York City.
SakaMai serves it for $85 but it’s worth the price tag.
“It’s a very exclusive form of A5 Wagyu beef from Miyazaki Prefecture. The Wagyu from Miyazaki has won the beef Olympics in Japan ten years in a row, explains Ken Chino, manager of SakaMai to Food Insider. “It has the highest grade of fat, the best marbling. It’s very, very rich until recently, it’s been very, very, very difficult to get here.”
The restaurant only serves three sandwiches a day so it’s first come, first served.
“The outside is so crispy and crunchy, but the inside is so tender. It’s amazing,” one customer says. “I’ve never had a sandwich like this before. It has so many flavors, textures. It’s truly unique.”
