About the Pop-Up

This all-day Japanese wagyu event is a collaboration between Sando Gang and Proper Rose Garden. Together, they created the Proper A5 Wagyu Set for dine-in. The afternoon tea set will feature Sando Gang’s signature A5 wagyu Japanese sandwich (aka sando) and Proper Rose Garden’s tea and sweet assortment of dessert. In addition to the tea tower, customers will choose one of their signature desserts and teas. This wagyu collaboration is a unique afternoon tea I have only seen in Houston. A takeout option for the wagyu sando will also be available.

The Wagyu Sandwich

Japanese A5 wagyu is the most luxurious beef that’ll melt in your mouth. The wagyu sando features a wagyu katsu filet sandwiched between sauce and Proper Rose Garden’s milk bread topped with pickled mustard and gold leaf. When biting into it, the crunchy toasted bread contrasts nicely with the wagyu’s tenderness.

Japanese wagyu is exclusive to Japan and is the rarest beef in the world, making up less than 1% of the beef available. Raised by Japanese beef masters who follow traditional methods to produce beef that is recognized around the world for its marbling, velvety texture and sweet flavor. Being graded on a scale of marbling, A5 which is the highest, truly makes this an unforgettable experience.

Proper Rose Garden

At Proper Rose Garden, have a break with afternoon tea with an Asian influence. Don’t forget to dress up and snap a picture in their beautiful tea room! By the way, I recommend the iced rose milk tea, half sweet; it’s my favorite drink on the menu. They have so many hot teas to choose from, too.

The dessert tier features an assortment of cookies, macarons, cream puffs, and scones. The selection varies throughout the year, so there will always be a new treat.

Sando Gang is the newest of Japanese chef Yusuke Motozawa’s three concepts. Soon, he will also be re-opening his souffle pancake Houston pop-up.

You won’t want to miss out on this luxuriously tasty pop-up. For dine-in, the Proper A5 Wagyu Set costs $125 + tax and fees. For takeout, the sando itself costs $75 + tax. One ticket can seat up a party of up to 4 people. Tickets are available now, so reserve your seat today!
