You can find good Japanese establishments around KL that specialises in omakase. However, if you want to have a truly authentic experience, your best bet is still in Japan. While that may be a stretch for some, EQ Kuala Lumpur is bringing it to you. For only 10 days, Kampachi at EQ Kuala Lumpur will be playing host to 3 Michelin-starred chef Masaaki Miyakawa along with his team at Sushi Shin.

EQ Kuala Lumpur
Chef Miyakawa earned his 3 Michelin stars back in 2017 for his eponymous restaurant, Sushi Miyakawa.

The Sushi Shin pop-up will be happening from 1 to 10 November and chef Miyakawa will be offering the same omakase menu that can be found at his restaurant in Japan as well. Being an exclusive pop-up event, seats will be limited. The omakase menu designed by chef Miyakawa will be available for lunch and dinner at Kampachi’s 200-year-old Hinoki wood sushi counter. A total of 20 people will be able to dine at one-go; 8 at the sushi counter and 12 in the private dining area.

At the hands of a seasoned and experienced professional, an omakase meal can be a life-changing experience.
