The co-founder and culinary mastermind behind Wagyumafia—Tokyo’s exclusive members-only Wagyu beef restaurants—will launch his first international branch, and it is none other than in Hong Kong.
Wagyumafia’s unique culinary creations and high-profile collaborations with international chefs have gotten itself global attention, putting themselves where they are today—a highly sought after restaurant that all beef connoisseurs would kill for a dining spot.
With a mere 18 seats in its Hong Kong outlet, Wagyumafia is ready to kick some ass in Hong Kong.
Richly marbled wagyu is highly popular in Japan; it is almost a way of life. These pampered cattle are prized for its fats and the Japanese sure know how to appreciate wagyu.
Now, here’s the thing. Wagyu can be done in many ways, but the most unlikely way is to make gyu-katsu sandwiches out of them. It sounds like a shame; the cow didn’t die just to be stuffed in between slices of bread.
But that is exactly what Wagyumafia The Cutlet Sandwich is doing and these guys got famous for doing it! A recent trip to Tokyo made us travel to Nakameguro just for a taste of these famed (and expensive) sandwiches and we are now converts. We promise to never judge sandwiches ever again.
