Chef Daniel Son is the brainchild behind the semi-regular Katsu Sando pop-up location that runs every Sunday in West Hollywood. The location became an immediate success, attracting consumers with flavors that Son loved as a child. The menu features items such as the insignia-singed bread, flattened pork, mushroom sandwiches, Muen-stuffed deep-fried chicken and even an A5 wagyu chateaubriand.

Son was born in LA and raised in Los Angeles, but moved to Tokyo to study the artistry of Japanese cuisine. There he discovered the Katsu sandwich and wanted to create the same flavor when he returned to Los Angeles. Son went through 13 recipes over the span of three months to concoct the perfect Katsu sandwich recipe to serve at the Katsu Sando location.
