Wagyumafia's Menu Includes an $180 Sandwich Called 'The Cutlet'

Wagyumafia, a Tokyo-based restaurant, has announced that it will soon be cross the world to open a Manhattan franchise, and with it it'll be bringing one of the restaurant's most famous menu items: The Cutlet. The sandwich is ostensibly simple, consisting of a breaded and fried steak cutlet between two slices of toasted white bread, but it isn't just any meat in the middle. The Cutlet is made with extremely fine Kobe beef, making it cost an eye-popping $180.

The Cutlet has long been a social media hit — though it looks like a simple sandwich, it doesn't take an expert butcher to see the quality of the beef. And for those who still want the wagyu experience without having to drop nearly $200, Wagyumafia also offers a slightly more affordable $45 sandwich made with a leaner cut.
