Omakase by Yashin
The highlight of the menu is the Omakase, a traditional Japanese dining experience where the chef chooses the dishes for you. The word Omakase translates to “I’ll leave it up to you” in Japanese, and that’s exactly what you do – you trust the chef to serve you the best dishes of the day.
At Sushi Kamon, the Omakase experience is a journey through the flavours and textures of the freshest ingredients. From the first bite of the appetizers to the last piece of sushi, every dish is carefully crafted to delight your senses.
Chef Michael is responsible for handcrafting each piece that is on the menu. He starts the night by getting a wooden tray out with all the fresh fish used for the meal.
The whole meal is based selection of small dishes, all around sushi. The sushi at Sushi Kamon is fun. Each piece is handcrafted by the chef, who uses only the freshest and highest-quality ingredients. From the melt-in-your-mouth smoked otoro to the delicate tuna, every piece of sushi is a work of art.
The chef at Sushi Kamon takes great care to balance the flavours of the sushi, using a variety of techniques such as marination, grilling, and smoking. The result is a menu that is both traditional and innovative, with flavours that are both familiar and surprising.
The menu and food
One of the highlights of the Omakase menu is the chef’s Ebi Tempura hand roll. A deep-fried seaweed taco-like sushi, with fried tempura prawn and kumquat mayo, was one of the favourites off the menu.
You will find that the sushi rice is over-seasoned with vinegar, Chef Michael mentions he uses three vinegars in his sushi. I found that it overpowered the delicate fish. Overall, it was a decent first Omakase experience, I liked around 3-4 dishes out of the 10. Ordering drinks can be awkward as you receive paper cups for green teas or alcohol from the bar.
