In our bid to eat a bit healthier after a bout of errands in Greenhills, Hubby and I opted to have an early sushi dinner at Omakase.
This Japanese resto started out as a takeout counter in Quezon City. The term omakase actually translates to “I leave it up to you.” In Japan, diners can sometimes leave it up to the chef to serve his recommended selection of seasonal specialties instead of ordering their preferences.
While that is not the system set in place in this restaurant, it does boast of an excellent selection of maki and sushi.
Hubby and I dined on a sampling of this selection with our orders:
Sashimi: Salmon (Php300) and Tuna (Php300). Raw fish sliced into thin pieces and served with soy sauce and a little wasabi.
Spicy Maguro Roll (Php310). Deep-fried spicy tuna topped with ebiko and scallions.
Chirashi Don (Php385). Assorted raw seafood over sushi rice served with miso soup.
Ebi Tempura (Php370). Five pieces of lightly battered and deep fried shrimp served with tempura sauce.
These classic seafood dishes (our go-to fare whenever we’re at a Japanese restaurant) were promptly served by the wait staff. The raw fish in the sashimi and chirashi don were fresh and flavorful.
