OMAKASE in NYC :)

First, you may notice that my blog is mostly covered with posts about food and you should not check it out while you are hungry 🙁 (sorry 🙁 ), but food are actually things that i really interested in.

So, here you go :). Another blog post about fooddddd

If you are a fan of Japanese food, sushi or sashimi is the most famous food when talk about Japanese cuisine. I am personally a fan of sashimi so whenever I have a chance (and of course, money – which I don’t normally have so much..), me and my best mate will check out some new omakase restaurants in NYC!

Wait, in case you are still confusing of what OMAKASE is, then here it is

Omakase is a Japanese phrase that means “I’ll leave it up to you” . When I look it up online, it says “The Japanese antonym for “omakase” is “okonomi,” which means you are choosing what to order. The chef will generally present a series of plates, beginning with the lightest fare and proceeding to the heaviest dishes. The phrase is not exclusive to service of raw fish with rice, and can incorporate grilling, simmering, or other cooking techniques as well. In American English, the expression is used by patrons at sushi restaurants to leave the selection to the chef, as opposed to ordering à la carte.”

This is an example of an omakase course that I had few months ago. I did not know what I will have and just patiently waiting for the chef to surprise us.

One omakase couse normally have 12-18 pieces of sushi/sashimi and normally last from 30 minutes to one and a half hour. There are very strict about timing in omakase since you all depends on the chef on what you having.

You can have the fresh fish straight from Japan, or shrimp

or oyster 🙂

and my all time favorite UNI ^___^

Omakase is pretty pricey, since the quality of the food you have is nothing to complain about. It’s of course will be too high my budget so I did not get to it it much often, but it will definitely my most favorite meal of all time 🙂
