Two weeks ago I reviewed the $75, 9-piece sushi lunch set and concluded it was the best sushi in Singapore and hence was insanely good value. Today let's look at the Omakase, which at $250 is more than triple the price for some additional sashimi and cooked dishes.
Yuzu Marinated Ikura
For lunch, we get different appetizers and desserts, and a grand total of 3 sashimi courses, 3 cooked dishes, half a tomato, 10 nigiri sushi and 1 maki.
Duo of Ika and Uni
The sushi is, of course, sublime, especially the shari (rice) which is the best I've ever eaten anywhere in the world including Japan.
Octopus, Tuna and Barracuda
The cooked dishes have some hits and some misses, so aren't all that great.
Considering the price differentials, it's hard to recommend the Omakase over the 'regular' lunch sets; however if you're in the mood for the absolute best the restaurant can offer, you won't be disappointed.
