“I’ll leave it up to the chef” is what “omakase” means in Japanese, which means you likely won’t know what dishes you’re getting till it’s on your plate. This unique selling point is what makes omakase dining – typically a multiple-course meal – so attractive!
Just sit back, relax and watch the chef prepare the food before your very eyes. Diners are usually not given a detailed menu prior to their session so each and every dish that is presented will be a surprise.
Unsurprisingly, such a meticulously curated meal can be quite an expensive affair. For example, an omakase dinner at the cult favourite Sushi Kimura can set you back about $300 to $400.
However, this does not mean that there are no wallet-friendly options available. There are a few places in Singapore that do offer decent omakase meals. While they’re not cheap by any means, these restaurants below are your best bet if you want to enjoy a premium experience for a reasonable price (there’s even one at a jaw-dropping $38++).
