The opening of a new Japanese restaurant on the third floor of Habito Mall seeks to take your hot pot experience to the next level.
KRBB, a play on the Thai word “krub,” is also the combined letters of the names of its four beef-loving owners: actor Chakrit “Krit” Yamnarm, Ronnasit Phumma, Ittichai “Big” Benjathanasombat and Pratiroop “Book” Panpiemrasda. The eatery appeases millennial expectations with an Instagram-worthy space decked out with light-colored wooden furniture. A long communal table dominates the eating area. Meats are stored in display cabinets for you to choose from but are sliced in the adjacent butcher’s room.
Three types of wagyu—they claim to have some of the best from Japan—are available. The highlight is the Japanese Ozaki, a rare beef that is only grown on the farm of breeder Muneharu Ozaki in the Miyazaki prefecture. Also on offer is Omi, a legendary wagyu from Shika prefecture and Hokkaido’s F-1 premium beef. Your choice of meat is cooked to your preference (yakiniku-style, shabu-shabu or grilled).
KRBB also throws a special feast every month where some of the best chefs in the country take turn to create tasting menus that combine their signature cooking styles with KRBB’s premium beef (B4,500 with sake pairing). On 29 and 30 March, chef Weerawat Triyasenawat from Samuay and Sons in Udon Thani injects spicy Isan flavors into dishes like Hokkaido wagyu spicy pla salad served with ant’s eggs.
