Ready to load up your day with meat-packed meals? We’ve got a fab new butcher shop in town.
Situated on the 3rd floor of Habito Mall, KRBB The Boutique Butcher is a meat savvy collector who has gathered altogether a variety of cuts – think ozaki beef, omi, himawari and Hokkaido wagyu – mostly sourced from local farms in Japan. For those who are familiar with the term ‘butcher shop’ but have never actually been to a real-serious, professional one where you can take note and learn Beef 101, be prepared to meet your master.
Yet for those folks who prefer to eat rather than learn, you’re also in luck, as KRBB offers up a fine a la carte menu, featuring both Thai and international dishes laden with premium meats like wagyu fried rice and a medium-rare cutlet sandwich.
Recently, we got a chance to check out KRBB The Boutique Butcher and tried some of the best dishes the outlet has to offer. Here’s a list of must-tries you need to order.

Fried Rice & Grilled Himawari Gyu (THB 290)
Creamy Omelet with Grilled Himawari (THB 380)
A warm bed of rice crowned with a fluffy, yellowy omelet is a staple food in Thailand — if not its own food group. KRBB spices the dish up by adding grilled himawari gyu and Japanese-style sauce for extra beefy oomph. Delish.
Tenderloin Cutlet Sandwich -Ozaki Hirekatsu
Cutlet sandwich, as known as katsu sando, differentiates itself from other kinds of meat and cheese-stuffed sandwich for its giant size of stuffing. Katsu sando is a straightforward food with no nonsense of lettuce or tomato. Consisting purely of a deep-fried A5 ozaki wagyu and pan-toasted white bread smeared generously with a robust katsu sauce, this cutlet sandwich is just as great to eat as it is instagrammable for the feed.
One of the world’s most flavourful meats, omi beef is here to cater to your inner carnivore. And for those who love a good, comfort-filled sukiyaki (Japanese hot pot), KRBB starts this dish with a pristine, organic omi beef in which they sourced from a premium farm named Daikichi in Japan. The marbled beef is then thinly sliced into ribbons to be eaten with other toothsome elements like mushroom, noodle and sumptuous broth. For an umami-packed bite, quickly dunk the beef into the soup then dip it in a mixture of beaten raw egg before devouring.
Much like a bowl of noodle but bigger and bolder in size and in flavours, this Beef Stew is actually a hot pot laden with all sorts of grade-A meat products like wagyu meatballs, kobe beef, Thai wagyu and more, all cooked in the wagyu beef broth that will have you dying for its toothsomeness.
