Mayfair restaurant launches £150 Wagyu sandwich

Raising the stakes in London’s sandwich game, a Mayfair restaurant has created a Wagyu beef Christmas ‘sando’ priced at £150.

As reported by The Evening Standard, Tokimeite, a Japanese restaurant from Michelin-starred chef Yoshihiro Murata, has launched its wagyu katsu sando for the festive season.

Tokimeitē specialises in high grade Japanese wagyu, from the Japanese breed of cattle of the same name.

The prized beef  contains a higher percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids than typical beef, and is known for its increased marbling of fat within the meat.

The pricey Japanese sandwich is filled with 20g of Japanese wagyu beef fillet, which is coated in breadcrumbs and fried.

Two slices of brioche bread are then lathered in melted Saint-Nectaire cheese and a Japanese demi-glace sauce, and the meat sandwiched between. Shavings of white truffle provide the finishing touch.

Only four of the £150 sandwiches will be made daily, available until the end of December.
