Chef Katsuhiko Hanamure said to ABC News, "I would like to attract many different people who are craving high quality ingredients."

Derek Schuette, the restaurant's general manager said about the expensive price tag of the dish to ABC News, "Pricing is based on market supply and scarcity of products that are difficult and costly to import."

Eating at Katsu definitely comes at a price. Other menu items include a $400 Wagyu beef and a Japanese Kegoshima Prefecture Wagyu New York strip for $200.

Chef Hanamure also known as "Katsu" grew up in Kaseda, Japan a small city in the Kagoshima prefecture, states the restaurant's website. He started his career at the late New Otani hotel and Garden in Los Angeles and went to work for a number of different high profile eateries including the famed Nobu. "Chef Katsu actively researches his ingredients to procure them from the freshest and most sustainable sources and buys locally whenever possible. He invites anyone who wants a new experience, while making lasting memories, to dine at his restaurant," states the website.

Some locals think it worth the price, due to the high quality of the ingredients. Hida Baghbni said to ABC News, "It was the real stuff, I was pretty impresse. The fish just melted in your mouth."
