Hush Restaurant sends us stir crazy with its €90 sambo special

By Emily Mullen

The boom is back

Hush Restaurant in Rathmines sent Dublin into a spin when it advertised one of the most expensive sambos ever to grace our shores. The sandwich made from breadcrumbed and fried grade A5 wagyu beef, an Asian-based dressing served on crispy fried white bread clocked in at a whopping €90. The sandwich got a lot of people talking, with many scratching their heads at the price (“€90? For toast?” “€9 u mean??”) but some seemed to be seriously considering ordering it.

Describing it as a “lavish creation” the beef from pampered and massaged Japanese cows is the costly part, the bread, and the dressing wouldn’t break the bank like that.

The sambo is not for “the average Joe” but for “anyone dying to have a unique foodie experience,” reads the Hush Instagram post. It turns out there are enough non-average Joe’s in town since the sandwich that was available through preorder throughout the week has sold out. Hush has said that they will be restocking soon, follow their Instagram account for updates.
