You can now enjoy the famous multi-course sushi experience from home.
You probably already know this, but omakase has been all the rage here for a while now. The expensive hand-to-mouth experience is enjoyed by the majority of Thai celebs who love to rave about their experience on social media. Though, with the pandemic, it is difficult to enjoy the true essence of the omakase. For a true omakase experience, you must leave it up to the chef – that’s exactly what the word omakase means. Entrusting the chef with the best ingredients is one component, the other is watching the chef himself prepare your meal.
But it’s difficult to have the same experience with most restaurants not being open at full capacity. There is also the fear of going out during the pandemic. But you’re looking to fulfill your desire for some sushi that’s specially hand-picked by a sushi master, we’ve got you covered on this International Sushi Day. Here are some omakase sets that you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
