went with my OPS primary school buddies for 4pax lunch at hachi today on 2.2.2017, CNY Day 6. ^
this the best lunch omakase, or rather the best lunch PERIOD! for me la… 🙂
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.
most of the omakase dishes are the usual.
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.
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.
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.
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.
the grilled A5 ohmi wagyu was fantastic, so flavourful, marbled, melt-in-your-mouth. ^^
the best there ever is!
there was some charcoal salt, sweet potato, ginkyo nuts, a brocoli like veg, momotaro tomatoes from hokkaido, and a cracker of tiny dried fishes.
next, we had the ohmi wagyu sushi.
server said to start eating from the right.
one with daikon, minced radish. the other topped with uni & caviar, and the last, with foie gras dust.
all top quality stuff, excellent tender wagyu no tendon, no residue.
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.
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.
