For the wagyu katsu sandos, Satsuma Gyu 4% Miracle is used for the cut of meat. Graded A5, enjoy a rich and beautiful marbling from Olympic-winning black cows, with its distinct texture and intense flavour elevating the sandos to another level.

Offering three different cuts – $32 for house-cut, $48 for striploin, and $62 for chateaubriand, we decided to go for the striploin. 200g of premium A5 Wagyu is coated with panko breadcrumbs and is deep-fried to a golden-brown exterior. A layer of wasabi aioli is then added before it is sandwiched between two slices of toasted shokupan.

The bread is toasted well, giving a pleasant crunch as soon as you bite into the sando. As for the star of the dish, the striploin is pretty tender and has an incredible beefy flavour. Unfortunately, it lacks the melt-in-your-mouth texture you would typically expect from such a high grade of beef. Perhaps it could have been due to the cooking of the striploin, as the temperature was leaning towards the medium-well to well-done side.

Adding a delightful contrast of creaminess and tang is the wasabi aioli, which helps to cut through the fattiness of the beef as well. The aioli does get a tad heavy after a while, making this a good sharing dish. Overall, the Katsu Sando might not be the best but it is definitely still pretty satisfying.
