A beef-cutlet sandwich normally costs you about $5 in Japan. Tokyo restaurant Wagyumafia, however, is luring affluent tourists from all over the world with a $180 sandwich.
Next year, Hisato Hamada and fellow founder Takafumi Horie will open an outpost in San Francisco’s SOMA neighborhood.

“Japanese tend to undersell valuable products,” Hamada said. The restaurant focuses on serving cutlets of wagyu, the world’s most expensive beef.
