Grab a Bite of Premium Wagyu Sando Right in Bangkok

Regarded as one of the world’s food capitals, Japan is renowned for its creative takes on everyday menus. Their ingenuity can make any dish shine despite its simplicity.

One such example is the Wagyu Sando, or wagyu beef sandwiches, which is currently all the rage in Japan.

Its soaring popularity comes with a price tag to match, too. Some of the higher-end Japanese restaurants sell this item for a whopping 6,000 THB.

Sumi Tei Yakiniku

In the last couple of years, Wagyu Sando has become one of Japan’s favorite comfort foods. The beef sandwich is similar to hamburgers in appearance and principle. However, Wagyu Sando typically uses Japanese white bread, which is softer, fluffier, and more aromatic than the average bread.

The wagyu beef filling is usually sirloin, as the cut yields tender yet flavorful meat. The beef is coated with breadcrumbs and deep-fried like tonkatsu for a golden, delicious crust.

Bambino 居酒屋

Here’s the good news: meat lovers who crave authentic Japanese Wagyu Sando no longer need to fly all the way to Japan! The beloved beef sandwich has arrived in Thailand.

We’ve listed three restaurants which offer this premium item. Plus, the prices are reasonable enough that you won’t feel like you might as well pay for a trip to Tokyo.

KRBB The Boutique Butcher

KRBB

KRBB (pronounced “Krab”) is a boutique butcher shop and restaurant well-known for their beef selection. They offer quite the variety with Japanese, Australian, and Thai quality beef.

As for KRBB’s Wagyu Sando, you can choose your preferred cut for the chef to make your sandwich with. Their recommendation is the “Himawari” beef, a breed of Thai wagyu, selling at 320 THB / 100 g.

Himawari beef has the aroma of the Japanese wagyu beef and the luxurious texture of the American Angus beef. The meat is served between two slices of homemade bread, spread generously with KRBB’s secret sauce.

Location:
Habito Mall, 3rd Floor, Sukhumvit 77 Road (Soi On Nut 1/1), Phra Khanong Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok

Bambino 居酒屋

Bambino 居酒屋 uses wagyu beef directly imported from Japan. They opt for Shokupan bread - a type of Japanese milk bread which is super fluffy and aromatic. The bread is toasted to perfection, then coated with house special katsu sauce.

Their famous Wagyu Sando starts at only 550 THB.

Also coming soon to Bambino 居酒屋 is the Premium Iberican Pork Sando; an alternative for customers who don't like beef. The pork comes from a breed of Spanish Iberican pigs which produces tasty, melt-in-your-mouth meat.

Sumi Tei Yakiniku

Sumi Tei Yakiniku

We’re ending the list with Sumi Tei Yakiniku, famous for their A5 wagyu - the best and most sought-after grade of wagyu beef.

Sumi Tei’s Wagyu Sando uses A5 wagyu tenderloin. The marbled meat is tender, almost buttery in texture. It’s cut into extra thick slabs then deep-fried katsu-style for a crunchy exterior. The beef itself, however, stays a perfect medium rare.

The beef gets a coat of Sumi Tei’s special katsu sauce, then put between two slices of Japanese milk bread. The bread has been brushed with butter and wagyu beef fat for a mouthwatering aroma, then lightly toasted.

After it’s assembled, the sandwich is cut into bite-sized pieces. Sumi Tei’s Wagyu Sando set sells for 2,180 THB with six succulent bites of wagyu tenderloin.

J Avenue (Thonglor Soi 13) 323/3 Soi Sukhumvit 55, Khlong Ton Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110
