An Exquisite Omakase Experience
Omakase, a word that has now become familiar among Malaysians when dining in Japanese cuisine. Simply a phrase that means ‘to entrust’ the dining experience to the chef, omakase allows a gourmet adventure for avid foodies in the realms of the Japanese culinary world.
It is a Japanese tradition to leave the food choices to the Japanese chef, knowing that the chef knows the best ingredients of the season. One pays a price and depending on the number of courses, the chef goes to work on preparing an omakase meal that ranges from the lightest to the heaviest before finishing up with a sweet course.
For a taste of an omakase experience, seek out the acclaimed Kampachi for a culinary adventure in the heart of our metropolitan city. Kampachi, one of the long-time award-winning Japanese restaurants, has been serving authentic and scrumptious Japanese cuisine using fine premium ingredients air-flown from Japan for over four decades. For this round, we headed over to Kampachi Pavilion for a taste of Chef Alex Lee’s Omakase experience.
Twice a week, the freshest and fine ingredients are imported from Tokyo’s iconic Toyosu Fish Market (formerly known as Tsukiji) and from Kansai Area in Japan. Each omakase experience takes diners from appetizer to sashimi, soup, grilled dish, main course and dessert. An omakase course at Kampachi starts from RM318 onwards and diners can also let the chef know if they do not take a certain ingredient or raw food.
