today good lunch crowd, hachi quite full, all tables taken up & 3 sushi counter seats too. 🙂

we took the 8-course ohmi wagyu lunch omakase S$92pax++, normal price is S$88pax++, server does not know if the price will be increased or just for today.

i had this awesome omakase for a friend’s birthday lunch here most recently on 3.11.2016.

most of the omakase dishes are the usual.

#1 uni kakiage

#1 uni isobe age  

first dish was uni isobe age, a nori (seaweed) flavoured fritter of uni (sea urchin) on a bed of edamame puree.

uni was very sweet… for me of course, i am happy to have uni as sashimi, but this age was good too, as always.

#2 oyster with ponzu jelly

oyster with ponzu jelly is another regular fixture in this omakase.

oyster very fresh, plump & sweet, & the ponzu jelly combined perfectly. 🙂

server said it was irish oyster.

#3 ohmi wagyu nimono

#3 ohmi wagyu nimono 近江和牛 with taro

the ohmi wagyu 近江和牛nimono (steamed dish) was incredible -nice tender, smooth braised wagyu with taro & edamame.

wagyu was so flavourful & melt-in-the-mouth, with a hint of yuzu. my friend said he wanted to make himself with the yuzu flavour.

#4 sashimi moriawase = akami, chutoro, buri, ika, hotate

#4 sashimi moriawase = akami, chutoro, buri, ika, hotate 

the sashimi moriawase was top draw = akami, chutoro, buri, ika, hotate.

usually you get akami (lean toro) or chutoro. today we had both. according to server buri supposed to be same family as kampachi (amberjack) and hamachi (yellow tail), only it is deep ocean & most expensive.

all top quality stuff, excellent tender wagyu no tendon, no residue.

#7 ochazuke

#7 ochazuke お茶漬け

for the gohan set, we had ochazuke お茶漬け.

there were 2 pieces of tai – seabream sashimi, and excellent pickles, very tasty not salty.

so instead of ocha (tea) they used a very tasty dashi to add t0 the rice.

#8 kuromame - black beans, with yuzu jelly

#8 kuromame – black beans, with yuzu jelly 

for the dessert to round off the meal, we had kuromame, the japanese sweet black beans with yuzu jelly, and they always served the roasted tea. so no need to order tea la which is another S$4!

my friends dined here for the first time. they all enjoyed very much. one friend was invited to waku ghin dinner twice the last few months. the price around S$600pax to S$720pax each time. while there is no abalone, alaskan crab & lobster in this hachi omakase, the A5 ohmi wagyu are the best there is anywhere. so he was also well satisfied with this lunch omalase.
