You can get $9.90 Wagyu katsu sando from the basement of Paragon. Ok not quite — a Gyu Sando features 1 seamless cut of meat for that sensual tender bite but this variation uses a patty. For $9.90, you get a 𝗪𝗮𝗴𝘆𝘂 𝗣𝗮𝘁𝘁𝘆 𝗞𝗮𝘁𝘀𝘂 𝗦𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗼 with 1 side.

Is it worse off with the patty though? Personally, I think it's just different. You still get the robust bovine flavours but the texture just became a more rugged medley of beef punctuated with gentle scores of fat. While less smooth, this different texture actually melded into the rubble of katsu crust quite well.

Overall, it was a hearty ensemble of textures and flavours when finished with a piquant tonkatsu sauce and nice thin slices of bread. That said, the bread could be toasted better as I recall crispier bread on my last visit, and the patty's textures were a bit more inconsistent this time. But if you're looking for a solid beefy time, you can't go wrong with this interesting Gyu-Sando-Burger hybrid for an affordable price of $9.90.
