Snippets: Best Japanese Omakase Restaurants to check out in Singapore | Where the cheapest starts from S$78++

Singapore – If you love your Japanese omakase but couldn’t find time to fly to Japan, there are quite a number of worthy options to consider in Singapore across varying budgets. Here are some of restaurants which we have personally tried before and would recommend!

*******

Hashida Sushi
The famous Japanese restaurant vacated from Mandarin Gallery, and has reopened at Mohamed Sultan Road last October. The shophouse space has three dining sections, helmed by Executive Chef Yuji Sato from Hokkaido. Lunch menu starts from S$80, while dinner is solely Chef’s Omakase (S$300-S$500). You can set your Budget for dinner within the range, or opt to leave it to chef’s hands with your personal preferences or food allergies, if any. There are a few signatures for me, such as the monk fish liver, shirako and the melt-in-the-mouth otoro sushi. Worth a splurge! [Read more here…]
Where: 25 Mohamed Sultan Road, Singapore 238969

Sushi Ayumu
As a rebranded concept from the previous Hashida Sushi, Sushi Ayumu specialises in traditional Edo or Tokyo style sushi, helmed by Head Chef Ryoichi Nakatani. The zen and mysterious looking entrance and walkway transports you to Japan instantly, offering omakase set from S$120 for 12-piece nigiri. Expect an intimate setting and close interaction with your sushi chef, with ingredients being fresh and varied. [Read more here…]

Hiryu
A relatively new contemporary Japanese restaurant along Tras Street, Hiryu literally means flying dragon and is helmed by Chef Raymond Tan whom previously held stints at Sushi Jin and Sushi Murakami. Lunch Omakase Set starts from S$128++, while dinner Omakase starts from S$188++. The dishes here are more fusion inspired and is a modern take on Japanese cuisine, where you can expect the likes of chilled truffle angel hair, donburi with black truffle and foie gras with uni sushi.

Takayama Japanese Restaurant
The Japanese fine dining restaurant located at OUE Downtown is a kappo-style restaurant with a menu inspired by the different seasons of the year. Go for the counter seats where you can watch the chef in action. If you fancy some privacy, there are two private dining rooms for six and eight guests respectively. On usual days, lunch set menu starts from S$68++ per person while dinner is at S$280++ per person for a 10-course meal. Expect Japanese dishes with some modern elements and presentation, where the dishes are consistently good. [Read more here…]

Yoshi
Formerly known as Kaiseki Yoshiyuki, Yoshi restaurant is the rebranded Japanese dining concept located right next to bespoke bar Horse’s Mouth. There is a three themed option on the menu, where you get to choose from the 8-course Maguro (S$158++), Wagyu Beef (S$178++) or Uni (S$188++) menu. It is not that extreme in terms of the combination so you will still get a good balance throughout the 8-course regardless of which one you pick. For example, Uni Chawanmushi is present in all three menus but the portion is the most for the Uni menu specifically. You get the drift. If you fancy a more elaborate experience, there is also the Yoshi’s Omakase (S$328++ for at least 9-courses). [Read more here…]

Nami Restaurant & Bar
With a dinner omakase menu at @$240++ per person, an omakase meal at Nami is not a cheap affair. Start your meal with some seasonal appetisers, followed by different types of sashmi from Toyosu Fish Market, before proceeding to five types of sushi and a main course like the grilled silver cod. There are also thematic omakase periodically, such as a Dashi Appreciation Journey I tried some time back. [Read more here…]

The omakase menu is a mix of appetisers, sushi and sashimi, where you can expect elements of fusion in the cuisine.
