Gyu San Sando @ Forum the Shopping Mall - New Outlet In The Heart Of The City


Known for its luxurious Kamichiku's Satsuma Gyu Sando, Gyu San Sando is now even more accessible with a new outlet at Forum The Shopping Mall.

A5 Striploin Sando 4.8/5

Featuring the highly prized Kamichiku's Satsuma Gyu 4% Miracle, this A5 Striploin Sando ($52) is one of the most extravagant sandos. Done in katsu style, the striploin's melting texture was accentuated. The wagyu fats are rendered in the mouth with each bite, releasing decadent beefy flavours in every mouthful. Elevating the overall taste is the thin spread of sweet-tangy Gyu San Tare, which complemented the robust flavour of the meat. At the same time, the contrasting sharp, creamy Wasabi Aioli on the other side of the bread cut through the richness of the beef.

Tamago Sando 4/5

Tamago Sando ($18) came vibrant with a generous portion of thick and fluffy tamago. Also prepared in katsu style, the crisp panko made it extra tasty by taking on the tare and wasabi aioli while also giving it an additional texture. While the overall taste was enjoyable, the sweetness level of the tamago could be reduced for a more balanced flavour.

Salmon Pizza 4/5

The Salmon Pizza ($32) surprised with a thin and flaky crust. Brimming with toppings, the combination of the crispy base, luscious salmon and the various saltish pops of Tobiko, Squid ink Tobiko and ikura brought a pleasing textural contrast. The crust was slightly buttery, which worked well with the briny notes of the pizza.

Wagyu Chips 4.5/5

Wagyu Chips ($8) is another highly raved dish. The ultra-thin Russet potato chips were fried to perfection in top-grade Wagyu fat and finished with a sprinkle of sweet, sharp, mustardy Gyu san wasabi furikake, making them even more irresistible.
