Hisato Hamada of famed Tokyo restaurant Wagyumafia is coming to Hong Kong this Sunday and Monday and he’s bringing with him the world’s most expensive sandwich. The item in question is Wagyumafia’s top-of-the-line katsusando, a 100g Kobe chateaubriand steak sandwich that sells for the equivalent of a cool $1,500 in the Japanese capital.
Hamada, an official ‘master of wagyu’, the high-grade Japanese beef renowned for its intense marbling and high price, is in town for a special six-hands dinner at La Rambla in Central. The theme is ‘Japan meets Spain’ and will also feature dishes by La Rambla’s chef Ferran Tadeo and chef Kotaro Nakashima of Tokyo’s prestigious Kaiseki Kanda, which holds three Michelin stars.
The menu is priced at $1,880 and as well as Hamada’s famous sandwich other delights include Hokkaido scallop donostiarra, torched wagyu crystal bread, butterflied and grilled XL red prawns (pictured) and Kobe beef gyoza.
If you can’t make it over to La Rambla for the two-day tasting, there’s always the excellent katsusando on offer at the likes of Sake Central and Yardbird.
